Talking In Your Sleep
The Romantics
Standard Tuning
Three dashes = 1/8 note
I've tabbed this song with three guitar parts:
Guitar 1 -- Clean, thin telecaster-like sound
Guitar 2 -- Clean, thin telecaster-like sound
Guitar 3 -- Clean but fuller sound with Chorus effect
For the intro, there are definitely three guitars.
