			     Roads Girdle The Globe - XTC

Tabbed by: Jonathan Apps

Tuning: standard

This is very fiddly to transcribe. There's some improvisation around the
basic chords going on, and some of the notes get lost in the mix, especially
with Partridge yelling away over the top of it. After wearing my ears out on
it, I'm confident this is how it goes, minus a few random improvisation bits.
Furthermore, it sounds exactly right when I play it along to the record.
Any comments / corrections are welcome.

"h" = hammer-on
"p" = pull-off



INSTRUMENTAL: (Right at the start and before each verse)

This is for one guitar only. It's played under the much more obvious lead line.
There's a fair bit of improvisation around this, with some muted chords
scattered about. The last 8-note bit is only done the first time around.
