                             Ride a White Swan - T.Rex
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Kyle M
Email: Legolas19211@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard (All Gtrs. Capo 4th Fret.)

Chords in brackets are chord shapes being held relative to capo, chords above those
are the actual sounding chords.

Use Thumb to pluck bass notes (palm mute them as well) to the 4/4 beat while using 
the other fingers to pluck the melody.

Both Gtrs. electric/w. distortion and slight slapback delay to get the right sound.

Intro:
