Xx Tabbed By Dangerous Dave xX

The two versions already on here weren't quite right, or complete I felt, so    I thought
I'd tab the whole song out cos I like it so much! the second version was spot on for
the first solo but didn't have the rest of the song!)
really sweet sound... dunno to be honest as I'm pretty useless on my GNX.  Might read
the manual one day, lol!) Definatly all bar chords, but you could just play the easy
versions if you can't do em.
Anyone who knows how to get that sound, on a GNX can you let me know!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To get the effects on all the chords in this song, set your effects pedal (you need an
rockable pedal, not just a box with knobs!) to control the volume.
Set the min as 0 and max to whatever is full.
Then to get the effect, strum the chord first with the volume pedal all the way off,
rock the pedal to get that swelling sound. Then just rock it back to kill the chord.
You will need to strum the chord a little before you start moving the pedal so it's
ringing by the time you rock the pedal forward, or you'll get a harsh strumming sound.

*Thanks to "samlynch" for finding a better sounding way of doing it! (barring the top 3
on 12th fret also sounds kinda ok,
but you don't get the high note - easy cop-out version!)

So it does! Wasn't quite sure what you meant at first (I thought you meant 16 on the E string....!) does sound better.

Thanks for that mate.

Cheers for the nice comment too! Pretty proud, only being playing a few months! heh.
