Crown of Thorns
Artist: Mother Love Bone
Album: Shine (1989)
Tabbed by LoudLon
loudlon@yahoo.com

Standard tuning EADG

PERFORMANCE NOTES:

1. Since this song is most often heard as the second
part of Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns (which is all
piano, no bass) the time stamps correspond to that
version, and not the stand-alone Crown of Thorns single
from the MLB album "Apple" released a year later.

2. I didn't mark every slide because there are a lot of them; 
just keep in mind Jeff Ament frequently (though not always)
slides up or down from one bar to the next throughout the song.
