	:JIBBOOM: 
		
		*Written,recored and performed by the guitar genius Mr. Steve Vai*


Transcribed by: Thomas Brown :o)

My name is Tom Brown, im 14 years old guitarist from England and a huge Vai fan. 
I love this song (and "The Ultra Zone" album in general) and was really pissed off 
that no one had transcribed it and either released the official book or put it on 
the web. So I took the liberty to do it myself, I do not normally publish tabs on 
the web as I think they are a cheats way to play music, BUT when there is no way 
of putting proper notation on the web (that i know of) I guess tabs are the only 
way. 

This will probably not be the whole song, just a taster so you can get your fingers 
flowwing around the mystical jungle creature that is "Jibboom"!!!  It might have 
some misatakes as I did it quickyly but if you do use this tab and enjoy it e-mail 
me so that I know it!!


So get the KY jelly out on the neck of that guitar, cause this song neck wanks like 
hell!! 

*Note: Steve more than likely used "Evo", and his new Carvin Stack on this, with 
no effects, so just plug your guitar into a wah-wah, and then into the amp with a 
touch of reverb get a nice sustaining sound but don't let it get fizzy, its gotta 
sustain but sound natural*

Bearing that in mind lets "Just GO for it!!!" (exit Pia he he)
