Subject: BEHIND MY CAMEL by The Police


Behind My Camel
	(music by Andy Summers)


This instrumental is off of the Police album -Zenyatta Mondatta-.  I think
this song won a grammy award for an instrumental category but I am not too
sure.  I do not know what guitar modes or pedals Summers used to get that
eerie guitar sound but it sure sounds cool.  Anyway, the major riffs (the
only riffs) are:

(oh yeah, you have to drop the lower E string to D, hence drop D-tuning)

E ---------------|---------------|-10----------------|---------------|
B -----7h8-------|-----7h8-------|-----12------------|-----7h8-------|
G -5-8-----------|-5-8-----------|-------------------|-5-8-----------|
D ---------------|---------------|-------------------|---------------|
A ---------------|---------------|-------------------|---------------|
D ---------------|---------------|---------12--0-----|---------------|


E ---------------|-10----------------|---------------|---------------|
B -----7h8-------|-----12------------|---------------|-----7h8-------|
G -5-8-----------|-------------------|---------------|-5-8-----------|
D ---------------|-------------------|---------------|---------------|
A ---------------|-------------------|---------------|---------------|
D ---------------|---------12--0-----|-5-------------|---------------|


E ---------------|-10----------------|---------------|---------------|
B -----7h8-------|-----12------------|---------------|---------------|
G -5-8-----------|-------------------|---------------|---------------|
D ---------------|-------------------|---------------|---------------|
A ---------------|-------------------|---------------|-3-------------|
D ---------------|---------12--0-----|-5-------------|---------------|


and so on...
You should make sure that each note is lengthened (I think that is called
tremolo)


The bass notes are just C to D, then G.  I am guessing that the chords (if
	there is a keyboard playing throughout the song, and I am pretty
	sure there is) are Cm to Dm to Gm.  And that is it.

Good tab but after Fret 10 on the e string I think you should play fret 12 on the G string:

E ---------------|---------------|-10----------------|---------------|
B -----7h8-------|-----7h8-------|-------------------|-----7h8-------|
G -5-8-----------|-5-8-----------|-----12------------|-5-8-----------|
D ---------------|---------------|-------------------|---------------|
A ---------------|---------------|-------------------|---------------|
D ---------------|---------------|---------12--0-----|---------------|
