Ben Harper: Pleasure and Pain
-----------------------------

I transcribed this song so that people can now play it in standard tuning.
It is directly translated from YodaTabs who did a great job initally
Also, it's not quite standard tuning - it's dropped d. Have fun.

Pretty good-looking tab!
Haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but will as soon as I can...but visually it appears correct. Would have been nice to see someone tab this song in the original key and tuning, though...

I worked it out in the original tuning. Someday I'll tab it. For a handy hint though, Ben Harper is very fond of this tuning configuration: d, A, A, D, A, D. This may appear boring (just 5ths) but it reduces limitations. Also you need to be able to use the slide on one string while simultaneously playing another string open. May seem daunting to beginners but it's not as hard as it sounds!
