			 CARPAL TUNNEL SLUG - Buckethead

Alright. This one wouldn’t be too hard to figure out if I would have done it
right the first time. I did it in Standard E tuning, then I thought it was in
drop D, until I realized every string was tuned down 3 half steps. Who woulda
thunk? So give me an extra star for putting the extra hour in to transpose it
up 3 half steps.

Anyways, this is a fun tune, but it shouldn’t be played alone. At least play
along with the recording. There are a lot of parts (even if I didn’t
show them) where the bass drops out and it’s just guitar. I sort of explained
when to do this but I was getting bored, so you can figure out when to rest.

This is 99% correct, but corrections are much appreciated. I did one editing 
round and caught something HUGE (nothing huge is left [I think]), but that’s 
probably not enough. I know I made mistakes.

In fact I have already caught a mistake since I added it.

Thank you for writing this! Since I don't play bass, this tab is very helpful for me when I'm writing the song out in Guitar Pro 5. Only problem is that guitar pro can't tune tracks 3 half steps down.
