Subject: Re: Good Shepherd (Traditional) by Jefferson Airplane

o The following should help you get started.  It's what I transcribed
  from the record a while back; no guarantees of accuracy, etc.  In
  particular, I think the signature acoustic guitar riff (marked
  "intro" below, but really runs through the whole song) is played by
  two guitars, one or both of them in an open tuning.  I think the
  notes I have are right, but the voicings aren't.

o Also, I didn't tab the electric guitar lead part.  It's fairly easy
  to figure out and play.

That is entirely corect. That's how Jorma plays it, and if you try it you will hear that break you could'nt find in :E"
