Head Carrier

Tabbed by Miamasa
I can't quite figure out what exact fingering and lil riff 
Frank plays during the C/B sliding part, will edit if I figure it out.

Great tab, and a great album!
I only hear one thing I would change. It seems to me like when he's sliding between C and B during intro and the first line of the verse, I hear him going to G(not C) before the 7th fret E slide down.
Like C/B/C/B G
I would tab it out if I knew how. lol
Other than that, sounds great.

looks and sounds like frank plays this:


e|----0----------------------0-------0--|
B|----1----------------------1-------0--|
G|----2-------5\4/5\4--0-----2-------0--|
D|----2-------5\4/5\4--0-----2-------2--|
A|----0----------------------0-------2--|
E|-----------------------------------0--|

and joey this:

e|----0----0--------------------|
B|----1----0--------------------|
G|----2----0--------------------|
D|----2----2--------------------|
A|----0----2----0/7\3-0---------|
E|---------0----------------0---|
