                     SLEEPWALK - BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Chris Parker (Chris_Parker)

Hey, so this is my sixth tab (written). I've been in love with this song 
ever since I heard it, so I'm happy I figured it out. It's a cover of 
Santo & Johnny's Sleepwalk instrumental, if you didn't already know.

An essential element to playing this song is that you need to play it 
very clean on the bridge pick-up. Also, if you have a delay pedal, set
the delay time to have the delays coincide with the timing of the played 
notes in the intro arpeggios with two delays to give it it's essential
sleepy triplet feel.

My amp settings (through an Ibanez Artcore AF75):

Volume: 5
Master Volume: About 1, but set it to taste as long as it isn't overdriven
Gain: 0
Treble: 8
Middle: 4
Bass: 5.5
Reverb: 3-4

I have switches on my amp for "Hi Boost" and "Mid Boost", and I put the
Hi Boost on and the Mid Boost off.

So here's the song!

That marked-off section is completely optional. However, the way I play it,
I just hold the mini-chord for the time it would take to strum those last
optional notes (two beats, basically).


              (I tend to only hit the higher notes of the chords,
                     so that's what I tabbed. Also, I mute the
                         lower notes of the chords for a dreamy feel.)

END

Basically you can play this song as long as you want (kind of). By that I
 mean as you can repeat and vary the playing of the main theme as long as 
you keep it all relevant and together and progress through all the parts of 
the song.

Okay, hope you had fun! I found a rough tab of this somewhere that had some 
really wacky chords and such on it, so I cleared it up, mixed it with my 
knowledge of the song, as well as how it is shown played on a DVD I have.

Thanks! Message me if you have any questions, or just leave a comment.

Great tab! The intro has a mistake tough, instead of an A major it should be an A minor!

Amazing tab! The only thing I can see is the A major in the intro should be in Minor form! :D
