Song: Around The World
Album: What If...
Band: Mr. Big

This version is problably not 100% correct,
but it gives an idea of how this song goes.
Also, listen to song and the tab will be easier
to understand.

Tuning: Eb,Ab,Db,Gb

h = hammer-on
p = pull off
(...) = repeatedly play note in front of bracket
< > = harmonic
p< > = pinch harmonic
t< > = harmonic tap
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
t = tap
~ = vibrato
b = bend

                                                                 Lick 1

The lick (indicated with a space) will change throughout the song
                                                                    Lick 2

2nd time: Lick 1:
        --------7--9-7-9-|
        -----------------|
        --7--------------|
        -----0-----------|

          Lick 2 is the same

3rd time: Lick 1:

         --------------------|
         --------------------|   He's problably using his D-Tuner but you can also quickly
         --------------------|   tune down 1 step and up again with normal machine head
         --0--0\(-2)/0--3--0-|

          Lick 2
           let it ring
         ------<5>--|
         ------<5>--|
         --0--------|
         -----------|

4th time: Lick 1

          --9--999-999-|
          -------------|
          -------------|
          -------------|

          Lick 2

          ----------|
          ----7--5--|
          ----------|
          -5-----3--|


-Verse

|-------------------------|
|--------------7--5-------| X 4
|--------7--5-------------|
|--0h7--------------------|

Between the riffs (=breaks) Sheehan plays licks that will also vary through the song


First Verse

1st Break: -
2nd Break:
 --9--999-999-|
 -------------|
 -------------|
 -------------|

3rd Break: -
4th Break: -



Second verse:

1st Break:
 --------------|
 --------------|
 ----77777-----|
 --------------|

2nd Break: Some kind of sliding or something

3rd Break:
 ---9t<20>t<19>t<18>t<17>t<16>...t<11>t<10>t<11>t<12>...t<20>--|
 --------------------------------------------------------------|
 --------------------------------------------------------------|
 --------------------------------------------------------------|

Sheehan does this in lots of his solos. It's not important to hit
the exact fret, but there has to be a harmonic sound


4th Break:
 --p<16>-|

The bass and guitar solo/battle is just some ipmrovisation on a E minor pentatonic
scale and the ending of the solo goes like:

|-19b21--19--14b16--14-12-|
|-------------------------|

Big finale is a G minor pentatonic "blast-off" and a return to E
