PARIS TEXAS  -  by RY COODER
            ( from the soundtrack of the film of the same name by Wim Wenders)

I tabbed and recorded a MP3 demo (downloadable from the webpage here above) with
two acoustic slide guitars but if you alternate the two tab lines you can even play
the whole with only one guitar.
The two of them are tuned in OPEN D : from low to high : D - A - D - F# - A - D

All the notes of the second guitar are played with the slide bar, so are the ones
played with the first except where indicated.
Where the slide bar is used , play just above the numbered fret.

I think it sounds better if you use bends

"I think it sounds better if you use bends" : It depends on your ability to play slide. Ry Cooder plays slide and I think this is the way you should play it .
