This is the 1st part of the 3rd movement of Steve Reich's Award Winning
Different Trains.
It was written for string quartet, so there should be 4 parts but
I've added 2 extra parts so it sounds like an orchestra in you bedroom.
In the song each part is added gradually and repeated until all parts
are introduced. But I assume anyone reading this tab didn't find it by
accident. See my YouTube video if you need help.

Drop D tuning: eBGDAD
Time Signature: 5/4

  |       |       |       |       |
|-----------------------------------------| (the music starts on the
|-----------------------------------------|  5th beat, its also much
|-7---------------------------------------|  easier to make a more
|---0-----------------------------8-8-7-8-|  accurate loop this way)
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|

  |       |       |       |       |

  |       |       |       |       |
|-----------------------------------------| (this loop is the same as
|-10----10------------10------------------|  the above one, but it starts
|---9-----9---7-7-9-7---9---------7-7-9-7-|  on the 5th beat, in true
|-----------------------------------------|  Reich Phasing style)
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|

  |       |       |       |       |
|-----------------------------------------| (this loop also starts on
|-5-----6-5---6-6-8-6-5-----------6-6-8-6-|  the 5th beat)
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|

  |       |       |       |       |
|-----------------------------------------| (this loop is identical to the
|-5---6-6-8-6-5-----------6-6-8-6-5-----6-|  one above, but it starts on
|-----------------------------------------|  the 4th beat)
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|

  |       |       |       |       |
|-----------------------------------------| (this is the cello part and the
|-----------------------------------------|  reason that this song is best
|-----------------------------------------|  played in Drop D tuning, play
|-----------------------------------------|  these last four sections one
|---------5-------------------------------|  by one over the loop for best
|-----------5-----------------------------|  effect)
