                   Sidewalks - The Weeknd ft. Kendrick Lamar
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Martijnfru
Key: F#m
Tuning: Standard
Info: In this song from the Starboy album the guitar is prominent. It contains
      a high pitched lead guitar and a sharp rythm guitar. Both are tabbed below.
      The high pitch can be achieved by playing everything one octave higher 
      (beginning at 19 instead of 7). This means though that the end of the lick 
      cannot be played since the fretboard ends at 22. For this reason the lead 
      guitar is tabbed one octave lower. 
      For the lead guitar de sign 'AP' means alternate picking. This happens at
      the end of the lick where it speeds up.

      Enjoy!


  
 [Rythm guitar]

 The rythm guitar part consists of 3 chords and is played in the same progression
 througout the song:

       F#m           C#m               Bm        C#m
