Song: Monterey
Artist: Tim Buckley
Album: Starsailor
Transcriber: Daniel "HanMeGitarren" Widegren

This is one of the greatest songs by Tim Buckley, the first times i heard it I shaked
because of the adrenaline that went thru me. It's just a terrific song. Anyway, it's
pretty much built on improvisation but here are the riffs that are used throughout the
song.

Main Riff:
e|-----------|
B|-----------|
G|10\8--8--5-|This riff is played in the beginning and in the end, and in D|10\8--8--5-|between.
A|8-\6--6--3-|
E|-----------|
                                                                              
Main riff add:
e|--------|
B|6/8/11--|
G|--------|Sometimes this thing comes in, followed by the main riff. 
D|3/5/8---|
A|--------|
E|--------|
              
Riff 2:
e|--------11--------11--11--11--11-----------|
B|-9--10--8---------9---8---9---8------------|
G|-8--8---8---------9---8---9---8---7--5--15-|This is the part when he 
D|-7--8--------------------------------------|sings "Under a loop of   
A|----------------------------------5--3--13-|stars..".  You could say it's 
E|-------------------------------------------|the chorus of the song.
                                                           
Riff 3:
e|----------------------|
B|----------------6/8/11|
G|----10------6-5-------|This is the "By the pebbles of the highway.." 
D|10------6-5-----3/5/8-|part.
A|----------------------|
E|----------------------|

That's basicly it. It isn't a very play-along-able song, really, but it's really cool to play and sing.
