Subject: TAB: Viv Woman/Steve Vai

After the overwhelming response (uhmmm, just 4 but that's enough!), here is
what I figured out of Viv Woman, out of the Steve Vai Flex-able. I tried what I
could, but not having a W/B I'm afraid I could not get it all correctly
(especially the solo). Any feedback (suggestions, errors, appreciation, flames)
is highly welcome!

Some notes for the technically oriented:

On the intro I think Steve plays bended F# and not G# as I show.
I also suspect he is bending (ouch) the G# to the B at the intro end, instead
of my suggested A# to B bend. They both sound good, so pick your choice.
On the solo I show with the * notes which are repeatedly bended and
pinched. I'm afraid a correct transcription is impossible here, so just listen
to the CD.
I did not figure out the trumpets parts, but they should be easy enough.
I'm planning soon to put together a drum/bass/trumpets base
on my sequencer, so I will have to work them out as well. Drop me a note
in a couple of weeks to check if I were not lazy enough to don't it..

I play the guitar thru my Boss SE-70, pre-eq to cut a bit bass and middle and
boost high, overdrive with low gain, eq. to boost even more the distorted high,
stack simulator, room reverb with a bit of delay L/R to give some spaciousness.
If you have a Boss SE-70 start with the presetted 70' Rock patch and trim it
to your taste.

Have Fun!
