this would be cool to be able to play, unfortunately my guitar has only one master control for both pickups, so the killswitch won't work. Anyway, tab is correct. 5*

On all these tabs i see them saying to use a whammy... A octave raiser sounds more like it. A whammy may sound ok if
thats all you got but i dont think thats what it is.
