                             WITH CLOSED EYES - Shannon Wright

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: aGuyWith2ears

Tuning: D G D G B E  (Gadd6 tuning)
tune low E down to D and A string down to G

Tempo : approx. 128bpm
Time sign. : 3/4



Intro 
(Anyone want to arrange this mellotron ? these overdubbed flutes ?)


This is the most difficult part, the Main Riff : 
the notes on the 2 lower strings (the strings re-tuned to D and G) should 
be picked (yes PICKED, holding a pick between thumb and index finger, or 
using a thumbpick) leaving one of your other fingers to pluck the melody 
on the 4th string. Let those notes on the fourth string ring while
maintaining that percussive bass-line by hammering the 7th and 8th fret 
of the  G String and accentuating those open D and G stings.



Main Riff (play Main Riff 2 times during Verses)

    1  & 2  & 3  &

                  I won't do without you




A tip about the Main Riff :

I'm not sure about this but the hammered 7th and 8th fret notes could be hit 
from a few frets below like this :

G|-----5h7--5h7-----|-----5h7----0-----|-----7h8--7h8-----|-----7h8----0-----|
D|--0---------------|--0---------------|--0---------------|--0---------------|

or maybe mixed with 0h7 and 0h8


It doesn't make the playing easier but Shannon Wright probably uses some kind 
of loop machine to layer on the guitars after achieving the bass-line, 
I'm not sure.

Improvements are welcome, have fun.

Thx for the tab. It helped me a lot.

Here is another proposal for the 4th string of the main riff (melody) :

e|------------------|------------------|------------------|------------------|
B|------------------|------------------|------------------|------------------|
G|------------------|------------------|------------------|------------------|
D|----\8----8----8--|-----7----7----10-|----10---10---10--|----10---10----8--|
G|------h7---h7-----|------h7----0-----|------h8---h8-----|------h8----0-----|
D|--0---------------|--0---------------|--0---------------|--0---------------|

I'm not sure but it sounds quite good too.
