Song: Ziggy Stardust
Artist: David Bowie
Tabbed By: James Fantom

The Tablature is the electric guitar part. The Chords above it are the accoustic's 
Bowie's) part

The Lyrics are out of place probably, im not sure.

This tab probably be hard to understand, seeing as it's just text, but some good 
are power tab and Guitar Pro.

Power tab is free, but guitar pro costs 60 bucks, but it is by far the better program.

Hi
Great tab. But the intro is played different the 1'st and 3'rd time, and the 2'nd and 4'th time.

Sounds to me like:
1'st & 3'rd:
Cadd9 G Am
|--------------------------------|
|----3---3-----3-----3-----3-----|
|------0-----0---0-----------0---|
|--------------------------------|
|3-----------2-----------0-------|
|--------------------------------|
1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &

2'nd & 4'th time:
Cadd9 G Am
|--------------------------------|
|--3-----3-----3-----3-----3-----|
|----0-------0---0-----------0---|
|--------------------------------|
|3-----3-----2-----------0-------|
