                             MIDNIGHT FLIGHT - Yeti
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: John Jakobi
Website: www.myspace.com/johnjakobi

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

This is my first attempt at transcribing a song, I am pretty sure some of the notes are 
but I think it comes close enough. I chose this song, because it is a really cool song 
back when I was a beginner, I got really mad because I could not find a decent tab to this one.
You will have to figure out the timings yourselves, I should actually be practicing for 
concert, instead of transcribing this ;-)
(And sorry for the long descriptions, I think this is an easy song to play, even for a 
so I tried to explain everything to make it as easy as possible)

You need a band or a Boss RC-50 Loop Station for this song to be really fun to play...

The bassline (I play it on guitar) is:

e|-----------------------------|
B|-----------------------------|
G|-----------------------------|
D|-----------------------------|
A|------------2--0-------------|
E|---0--3--2--------3----------|(Repeat 4 times, then go on with:)


e|-------------------|
B|-------------------|
G|-------------------|
D|-------------------|
A|-------------------|
E|--0--3--2--0--3----|(And then go back to bass riff one throughout most of the song, it 
a bit sometimes, but you should be able to figure that out yourselves, it sounds just 
cool without the variations)


During the first verse, there are some sounds that sound like a synthesizer or 
I use harmonics (I think it comes close enough to the sound) on the 5th fret of the 1st string 
sth like:
   + +             + +           + +                 + +
e|-5-5-------------5-5-----------5-5-----------------5-5-------------------|

And then (without harmonics, also on the 1st string):

e|-12-12\---|

(Slide down to the top of the neck and numb the sound by releasing, but still touching 
string)
After the slide from the 12th fret comes a chuck (numb all strings by touching and hit 
once)

The first solo:

e|----------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------5--0--0h2-------------5--6p5--0--2--0h2--|
A|--2--5--2-------------2--5--0h2---------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------|


The first time the solo is played, it ends with this:

e|-----------------------|
B|-----------------------|
G|--2/b9--b9--b9--9\-----|
D|-----------------------|
A|-----------------------|
E|-----------------------|once again slide down all the way...

The second time (played over the verse) it ends with something like:

e|--------------|
B|--------------|
G|--/7--b9--7---|
D|--------------|
A|--------------|
E|--------------|


Sometime near the end, they start strumming the chords E, G, F#, and B over the bass 
I use this strumming pattern:

E       G       F#      B
/ / / * / / / * / / / * / / / *
1 & 2 & 1 & 2 & 1 & 2 & 1 & 2 &

(I put '/' for the beats you hit the strings on and I put '*' for a chuck (numbing the 
and hitting them, I think it gives it a good percussion)

I did not have time to figure out the long solo at the end yet, but when I have it 
out, I will add it, and maybe post this tab with the final solo as a guitar pro file.
If you are using a loop station, try an egg shaker for percussion, it goes really well 
the guitar.
Have fun!

-In the first solo, where I put "6p5", I think it actually sounds better as "7p5".
-In the chord sequence, I have corrected the strumming pattern to:
E G F# B
/ / / * / / / * / / / / - * * *
1 & 2 & 1 & 2 & 1 & 2 & 1 & 2 & (- equals miss, the chucks are not neccesary, you can also hit the strings).

Okay, for some reason the strumming pattern does not come out right when I post the comment...

The "E" should be over the first "1", "G" over the second "1",
"F#" over the third "1" and "B" should be over the sixth "&". The B-chord is only played once, adding chucks till the end of the sequence.
