Song:      Bang bang
Artist:    Nancy Sinatra
Album:     Kill Bill Soundtrack
Tabbed by: Dan Benz (DanSumthing@aol.com)

This here's the opening theme from Kill Bill Vol. 1.
Really cool and spooky, and fairly easy to play.
I am sure this tab is extremely accurate. I know this because I separated the music
from the lyrics using Sound Forge 6.0, so I could hear the notes more clearly. You
can do this yourself, actually, because in this song, the guitar part plays only in
the left audio channel. Cover up or unplug your right speaker to get rid of the
vocal part.

In general, I tabbed the notes so that they line up closely with the words that
they are played with. It's not exact, but it will give you some idea of timing.

Played on an electric guitar with clean
settings, reverb, and plenty of tremolo.

Only thing, in the chorus, I'dve said the third chord was a D# (x,6,8,8,8,x), instead of your arpeggio on D/D#.
Other than that, excellent tab
