"The Jealous Tunnel / About Face"  by  Michael Hedges

   Transcribed by Jay Armstrong

****************************************************************
Before you jump into this one, there are few important things
to keep in mind.
****************************************************************

  -  The tuning is DADEAB, just like "The Naked Stalk".  Although
     they can stand alone, the three songs sound best when played
     together, as they do sort of go together.  The TAB for
     Naked Stalk was printed in a guitar magazine a couple of years
     ago, and it has also appeared on the net.  It's at nevada.edu
     and its mirror sites, but if you can't get it that way, let me know,
     and I'll mail you a copy.


  -  For the "Jealous Tunnel" part, Michael is pretty much strumming
     the whole way through, which makes it less than ideal to notate.

     What is important to pick up from this transcription is the
     LEFT hand fingering, as the strumming sort of complicates the
     issue.  If you are familiar with "Ritual Dance", you know that
     it also is strummed the whole piece.

     What is notated is my best effort to show how I play this piece,
     which I have based on the way I have seen Michael do it live.
     Just get the basic fingerings, then FEEL the rhythm.
     Sounds kinda corny, but it's the only way you'll do this one
     justice.

     Keep in mind, of course, that "About Face" was recorded with backing
     percussion, and a whistle melody, so you'll have to work harder to
     emphasize the melody on a solo guitar performance.


  -  For the first chord, 0505xx and 03x3xx, use then 2nd & 3rd
     fingers, which will make the 1st and 4th available for the
     050503 and 050505 chords.


  -  As for the 444000 and 777000 chords in "About Face".....
     It sounds on the CD like there are some higher notes, possibly
     octaves of the 444 & 777 bass notes, I dunno.  Anyway, I haven't
     found any better forms than 444000 & 777000, and I'm pretty sure
     these ARE the forms Michael uses when playing this in concert,
     so.....  maybe they're overdubs?


  -  I finger the 222020 chord by catching the bass strings w/ my
     index finger, and fretting the second string w/ my middle
     finger.  You may have a better way.  If so, let me know how
     you do it.  You also may want to play 222020 for the 222000
     chord in "Jealous Tunnel".  I'm not sure which way it is, and
     I don't have the CD at the moment :(


  -  The 5x035x chord probably looks funny, and more difficult than
     it needs to be, but I think it really is what he's doing.
     Use the ring finger on 6, index on 3, and pinky on 2, with
     the middle finger on the 4th fret, ready for the next note.
     Note that this part is always played with a repeat.  On the first
     time, I think the notated 0^2^0 sounds right, but it sounds like
     he's playing something slightly different on the repeat.  Anyone
     got any ideas?


  -  Lastly, if you have ANY suggestions, comments, criticism
     whatsoever, please let me know.  I love figuring out Hedges
     tunes, but typing them can be a drag, especially this long
     one ;)   So drop me a line!  At least let me know if it
     was worth all this typing.


This one's worth practicing, so stick to it, and enjoy :)

  Then play the part from the segue again, then the above measure,
  just listen to the cd to put the right parts where they belong...
  The other parts of the tune that get repeated a few times are :
