                                  ANACRUSIS
                               PAINT A PICTURE
              From their impressive '91 album "Manic Impressions"

Tabbed by:  Jason Mathie
            Mathie@angelfire.com

I'm not sure about the tuning on this song, it seems like it could be
more easily played with straight-E tuning, but I'll use the B tuning
anyhow.  It's easy enough anyways.

Comments:

Anacrusis play six-string guitars, tuned as the low strings on a seven
string guitar.  So, from 6th string to 1st string: B, E, A, D, G, B.

Generally one dash is a 16th note or a 32nd note in length, so either ----
or -------- is one beat.

Notation:

|--------|
|-4:--6:-|  Time signature changes.  6/4 has 6 beats to a measure.
|-4:--4:-|
|--------|

|-------|-------||-
|*------|------*||-  Repeat the section.  Play twice unless
|*------|------*||-   otherwise noted.
|-------|-------||-

|-------|
|-/=3=\-|  Triplets.  Play 3 notes where you would play 2 normally.
|-2-2-2-|
