			Sunday Bloody Sunday - Pillar
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 This song would definitely make U2 proud. Some new progressions and a few twists
give it the Pillar touch; it's a great song.

Tuning for Guitar 1: Standard
Tuning for Guitar 2: DADGBE

Riff 1 (Intro & Verse)
1st guitar clean.  ¯This last part of Riff 1 is a different rhythm than the
e|--------------------| rest of Riff 1. It's faster, so listen to the CD to 
B|---5---5---3---3----| get it down right. It's that way on all the Riff 1's.
