                                  The Police
                           "Hole in my life" (Sting)
                            Album: Outlandos dAmour
 
                  transcribed by torsten lasse (t.lasse@web.de)
 
 
 
When you use this tab you should listen to the record (to get this funny
little differences that made The Police excellent and others not)
 
...and of course to get the right rhytmn of the guitar part and the song
!
 
Feel free to vary the parts e.g. combine it with the bass line.

The song is in A, and this tab should be moved down a fret. Then the open A works in the intro, and the b and high e can be left open for the descending part. Also, the "shadow in my heart" part works with a d chord form on the 5th fret, allows the open d to ring, and allows you to add the High A, and HIgh C as the bar progress's.

On the album, the first bar is from a different take and has been slowed down a bit to match the tempo, at the expense of the pitch! Let it play a few bars and then start it over, you won't miss it...
