Wonderful World
by: Tesla (This band rocks!)  off of Bust a Nut

Transcription by: Scott Ettinger (Sparc@delphi.com) 4/27/95 1:30 A.M.


  I heard this song the other day and it blew me away, so I had to figure it
out.


Intro:  Acoustic with electric a la Tesla

E-|----------5--0-----------9--------7--------5-----\3------------------------|
B-|-------7--------7-----7-----7--------7--------7--\5------------------------|
G-|----7--------------7-----------7--------7----------------------------------|
D-|-0------------------------------------------------0------------------------|

E-|----------3--0-----------7--------5--------3-----\1------------------------|
B-|-------5--------5-----5-----5--------5--------5--\3------------------------|
G-|----5--------------5-----------5--------5----------------------------------|
D-|--------------------------------------------------0------------------------|
A-|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|


E-|----------1--0--------------------1--0-------------------------------------|
B-|-------3--------3-----3--------3--------3-----3----------------------------|
G-|----3--------------3--------3--------------3-------------------------------|
D-|-------------------------0-------------------------------------------------|
A-|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

G-|----2-------------2----!7!-------------------------------------------------|
D-|-0---------------------!7!-------------------------------------------------|

Verse 1:  Acoustic and vocals only

E-|--------------0------------------------------------------------------------|
B-|------2-h3p2-----------3-\2-------2h3-2------2-----------------------------|
G-|-----2------------------------------------------4p2------------------------|
D-|----2----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A-|-0-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-|-----------------4-----------3-----------2---------------------------------|


E-|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-|-4b(5)u4--2-----2-----------2-----------4----------------------------------|
D-|-------------------3-----------3-----------5-------------------------------|
A-|----------------------3-----------3-----------5----------------------------|
E-|-1-----------1-----------1----------/3-------------------------------------|

Repeat  4 times

    You may ask "how the heck is it possible to play this?"  I personally
think that Skeoch has evolved an extra finger to play this stuff.  The way
I do it is to make use of my thumb to fret the low E string on the G and
F#, then do a painful bend with my pinky along with the F base note.


Transition Riff 1:  Acoustic and electric sound again

E-|----------5--0--------------------3--0--------------------1--0-------------|
B-|-------7--------7--------------5--------5--------------3--------3----------|
G-|----7--------------7--------5--------------5--------3--------------3-------|
D-|-0--------------------0--0--------------------0--0--------------------0----|

B-|-------3--------3-----3---------------3------------------------------------|
G-|----2--------------2---------------2---------------------------------------|
D-|-0------------------------------0------------------------------------------|
A-|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Repeats twice

Next, play verse 2 times again (Acoustic only)


Verse 2
 guitar 1: (on first 1.5 times through, both acoustic and clean electric,
            then just the acoustic)

E-|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-|----------1-----------0-----------1-----------0----------------------------|
G-|-------2-----------2-----------2-----------2-------------------------------|
D-|----2-----------2-----------2-----------2----------------------------------|
A-|-0-----------0-------------------------------------------------------------|
E-|-------------------------2-----------2-------------------------------------|

E-|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-|----------2-----------0-----------2-----------0----------------------------|
D-|-------3-----------3-----------3-----------3-------------------------------|
A-|----3-----------3-----------3-----------3----------------------------------|
E-|-1-----------1-----------1-----------1-------------------------------------|

Play this a total of 6 times (twice before lyrics and guitar 2 come in)

E-|-------------2-2-2-2------1------------------------2-2-2-2-----1-------3---|
                ^
                Nasty eh? ( you can get away with omitting the A string...)
                          do some creative thumb work again.
                          ( hell to transcribe )
Repeat this twice

                                   so I may have gotten a little creative
