Song: The Badger
Band: The Tea Party
Album:The Edges of Twilight (EMI, 1995)
Tabbed by: Aaron Severn (rlsevern@idirect.com)

Some of my favorite Tea Party songs are the instrumental ones.
As far as I can tell this is accurate tab for the guitar part,
all you need is someone with a sitar to play the accompaniment
and you're set.  You'll probably have to finger pick it, I know
I do.  As for the timing, I've written it in 6/8, it seems to
fit best, though there's a good chance I'm wrong.  Anyway, enjoy.

Tuning: Open D
        D A D G A D (from low to high)

Tab Notation:
  H - natural harmonic
  / - slide up
  \ - slide down
  h - hammer on
  p - pull off
  b - bend
  r - release bend
  = - let the note ring
  ^ - hammer on or pull off the note above, had no room for the h/p

Musical Notation:
  ||                   ||
  ||                   ||
  |.  [some tab here]  .| - repeat the section in between
  |.                   .|
  ||                   ||
  ||                   ||

  % - sign
  @ - coda
  D.S. al Coda - Go back to the place in the song where there is a
sign(%)
                 above the tab.  Play everything until you reach the
coda(@)
                 then skip to the end of the song playing from the
second
                 coda to the end.
  /3\ - Triplet

That's perfect!
That would've been so hard to work out by ear, unless you used a book or somethin?
