Title: Temptation Intro             -Only one on the net! GUARANTEE  
Artist: The Tea Party                              
Album: Transmission         (The intro is actually played on a Saz
Date: July 26th 2002         I just tabbed it for an acoustic guitar)
Composed by : Jeff Martin
Tabbed by: Robert Breen
Tuning: For the intro- open Gb5   low to high (Db, Gb, Db, Gb, Gb, Db)
        Remainder- E B E G B E (not important here though

The intro i am almost positive is played on the saz, jeff said in an interview he uses
the saz in temptation but he never said where so im guessin the intro and the verse.

P.S Listen to the song for timing aand use alot of trill strumming ie(strum fast)

THIS IS AS CLOSE AS I COULD GET IT SO IF YOU DONT LIKE IT GO TO HELL MAN CAUSE I NEVER SEEN 
IT TABBED YET!!

===========Temptation by The Tea Party
>From ³Transmission² 

tabbed by matt (bigben@infobahnos.com)

I¹ve seen them play this song live on television a couple of times so I¹ll
tab out some live parts as well as the one (or two) parts on the album.


Main Riff

E-------------------
B-------------------
G-------------------
D-------------------
A-------------------
E-2-0-2-0-2-0-2-0-2-

You play this riff at the beginning and when Jeff screams ³TEMPTATION!²

Bridge Riff

We exist..........

E-------------------
B-------------------
G-------------------
D-------------------
A-------------------
E--3---3---3---3----

This riff is followed by the main riff.  I¹m not sure if this could be a
synth but this it what it sounds like.

Verse Riff (Live)

E-----0h3-2h3-2p0---
B-------------------
G-3h4---------------
D-------------------
A-------------------
E-------------------

I think that this is played on a synth on the album version but when they
play it live Jeff plays this.  Right before the interlude, it get¹s quieter
and Jeff plays this with a delay(?) as written above a couple of times, and
then an octave up a couple of times.

Interlude (live)

Jeff messes around with the main riff for a bit, does several rhythm
variations.

Solo (live) 

E-----0h3-2h3-2p0-----0h3-2h3-2p0-----------------
B---------------------------------3p0-2p0-3p0-2p0-
G-3h4-------------3h4-----------------------------
D-------------------------------------------------
A-------------------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------------

Jeff plays this twice with the wah pedal and then fools around with one of
his exotic scales based around these notes. He then plays this a couple of
times:

E--------------------------
B--------------------------
G-3-4-4b6r4-3--4-6-6b7r6-4-
D--------------------------
A--------------------------
E--------------------------

It¹s a pretty wicked song live.  They stretch it from about two and a half
minutes (without the acoustic beginning) to about five and a half minutes
when live. There¹s other parts I might have heard but they change it a lot
live so I¹ve given you the basic structure. It rocks!

have fun with this
