                 Window Paine
                  from Gish
            Transcribed by Adam Morris
 From: benmo@deakin.edu.au (BENJAMIN JAMES MORRIS)


 This is another song that wasn't at Nevada,
 so here is my version.

 b=bend
 r-release bend
 h=hammer on
 p=pull off

 Standard tuning

*
E-----x------x------x------x------x------x----------|
B-----x------x------x------x------x------x----------|
G-----x------x------x------x------x------x----------|
D-----x------x------x------x------x------x----------|
A-----x------x------x------x------x------x----------|
E-0-0-x--0-0-x--0-0-x--0-0-x--0-0-x--0-0-x--0-0-----|

* This is actually for bass, but it doesn't really matter.
  The x's are done by hitting all the strings with you palm
  above the pick-ups.

         This took me hours to figure out and type up so if
         you are reading this now send me a message, even if
         you have nothing to say, I just want to know that
         people are getting it and maybe using and enjoying
         it.  I think most of what I have here is right.
         Once again, PLEASE tell me what you think (good and bad).
         Any corrections gladly welcomed.
