300 MPH TORRENTIAL OUTPOUR BLUES - The White Stripes
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Neno

Tuning: Standard EADGBe

-I've included the counting in the begining, if you're confused by the counting in other parts,
just copy and paste the counting above the measure you want and it should help you as the spacing
in the entire tab is mostly consistent.
-The bracketed notes are very faint in the studio recording but you can hear them live

The harmonics here are artificial. Basically, hold the indicated frets with your left
hand as you would normally. With your pointer finger on your right hand hover 12 frets 
above each note (frets 16, 16 and 17 in this case). With your right hand finger touching 
the string above those frets, use your right thumb to pluck the string. Tricky technique 
but worth practicing.

FIGURE 4 - SOLOS - Gtr. 1 (Distortion, Whammy +1 ocatve)

If you dont have a whammy pedal you need to play each note an octave higher than written

^ = full bend (indicates the fret to be bent not the final pitch so I use it for pre-bends too)
b = 1/2 or slight bend
r = release

Solo 1 (2:05) (Some are hard to count so I just notated where the beats fall)

At 3:10, your little diddy seems off at the end.

where it says you should play open A, but you prefer an open E, i think it sounds nicer playing this:

E--------------------------
B--------------------------
G--------------------------
D-----------6-----6---7----
A-----------7-----7---0----
E--0----(0)--(0)0-----0----
