Massive Attack - Teardrop
(c) 2002 James Pearson
jamz2k@btinternet.com

Chords:

Aadd9: X02420
    G: 320003
    D: XX0232
    F: 133211

Okay the main ostinato pedal you can hear on this piece is actually played on
a harpsichord but there is a way on the guitar that you can emulate that sound.

Hold this chord (use your thumb for the first note) 

e|0|                                    e|-----0---------0------0-----------|
B|5|                                    B|-----5---------5------5-----------|
G|7|                                    G|---------7---7------------7---7---|
D|7|                                    D|---7---7---7--------7---7---7---7-|
A|0|                                    A|-5----------------5---------------|
E|5|    Then play this pattern:         E|-5----------------5---------------|

It's played repeatedly throughout the whole song with the exception of some
instrumental breaks with drum fils.

F                   G            Aadd9
Most faithful mirror, Fearless on my breath

Teardrop on the fire, Fearless on my breath

Great tab.
Don't press the high e-string when playing the chords:

Aadd9: X02420
G: 320030
D: XX0230
F: x33210
