                  She Talks To Angels - Black Crowes
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Transcribed by Derreck


This is an awesome song on the acoustic, sounds good alone and even better with 
two guitars. You'll have to listen to the song for the rythym (obviously). If your a 
beginner, e-mail me and i'll send you a recording of how I do the intro and chorus 
to get you rolling. 

This song is in Open E tuning. Tune your 5th string (2nd from top) up a whole step 
from A to B, 4th string up a whole step from D to E, and your 3rd string a half 
step from G to G#.
        
      h - hammer on 
      p - pull off 
      b - bend string
      r - release bend
      s - slide
      v - downward strum
      ^ - upward strum
      <>- Natural Harmonics

[Verse 2]
(Same strumming pattern)

She paints her eyes as black as night now
She pulls those shades down tight
Yea she gives a smile when the pain comes
The pain gonna make everything alright


[Chorus]
(Start in the middle of the 050000)

She says she talks to angels, they call her out by her name
Oh yea she talks to angels, says they call her out by her name


[Verse 3]

She keeps a lock of hair in her pocket
She wears a cross around her neck
Yes the hair is from a little boy
And the cross from someone she has not met.....not yet


[Chorus]

She says she talks to angels, says they all know her name
Oh yea she talks to angels, says they call her out by her name

(Now skip the Natural harmonics, 
 and go straight to the Bridge, which is something like this)


[Bridge]
(Sing while your strumming the A)

 She don't know no lover
 None that i've ever seen
 To her that ain't nothin'
 But to me, it means, everything. (on this one, stretch the A out 
                                                    with the words)

Repeat the 2nd Verse here.

Then Repeat chorus twice, with lotsa feeling, I want you tearing up by now.
Add 2 extra B (7's) A (5's) runs in the very last chorus, 
get the lyrics from the song. Just extra ooooh's n stuff.

Well thats about it, i know this is messy,
but its my first attempt at tableture.

Comments would be appreciated..

Well when I submitted the tab it was correct, but now that I check it out on the site, its got a couple mess ups. where you see the 12's and 7's, those are Natural Harmonics, the strumming patterns above them should be scooted over to the strums, and N.H. should be above the harmonics..

umm just a suggestion, when u tab it out put the individual string tuning on the tab:
e--------------------
B--------------------
G#-------------------
E--------------------
B--------------------
E--------------------

i was very confused, because i went sraight to the tab w/o reading the intro stuff and didn't know that i had to tune up. I was wondering why this was getting a 5* rating, now i know, good tab.
