                Big Country - 1000 Stars

                  Album - The Crossing


From: maule_andy@hotmail.com

Guitars 'double up'on this track. The tab pretty much covers
Stuart Adamson's(Guitar 1) & Bruce Watson's(Guitar 2)parts - you'll have to choose
which one you want to be.....unless of course you're a freak with
two pairs of hands and a doubleneck guitar! The song is in C.

h - hammer on
p - pull off
/ - slide up
\ - slide down
~ - vibrato
PM- palm mute
