Arabian nights, at your primitive best.

(pattern 1) x4
A tourist oasis
Reflects in seedy sunshades
A monstrous oil tanker
Its wound bleeding in seas

Of boys, goats and things.

______________________________________________________________

Here's a wee update.

Try playing it with...

        EADGBe
    C  (032010)
Esus2  (222452)
Gsus2  (555785)
Dadd9  (x70770) in place of Dsus2

This sounds a bit brighter and is easier to transit to the riff.

Enjoy  :)

Superb. I'm not a hundred percent sure this is how John McGeoch himself plays it, but everything seems in order. It would be great to see more Banshees tabs from you.

Thanks for the comment and rating. I thought that a McGeoch tab might have stirred up a few more comments! He is a guitar God!!! I have done a bass tab for Israel and I hope to do a guitar one for it too, if only I can get the solo. It's driving me bonkers!
