			     BURLESQUE - Family
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Ian Ferguson


Tuning:	Guitar 1: Open G Capo on 7th fret
Tuning: Guitar 2: Standard tuning, no capo

If I'm right, there are two distinct guitar parts. The main riff is played in
open G and doubled on a guitar in standard tuning (indicated by "played with 
first guitar").

There are parts where the standard tuning guitar plays by itself, as indicated
("solo riff").

I have no idea if these tabs are right or wrong but I'm amazed to find that I'm not the only one to remember this song. No one else I know neither have heard of this or if I play it to them, they can't stand it. I think it's brilliantly composed! Great job - Thanks!
