                             Backwards Head - Kim Churchill
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Chris
E-mail:
This is a tab of Backwards Head by Kim Churchill. Be aware of the tuning!
To get started play around and get familiar with the tuning and the
special technique! Some information for Acoustic Guitar players like me:
The Song sounds great if you play it with your Acoustic Guitar. 

Enjoy playing! Please give comments to improve the quality of this tab!

Tuning: D A D F# A D  
Technique: Whole Song is played with "Over fretboard" technique 
           otherwise you`ll have a lot of trouble creating the full sounds
           (watch a video of Kim if you are not sure what is meant here)
            
Percussion is denoted by: t 
Flageolets are denoted by: f
