Restless Natives by Big Country
>From the movie "Restless Natives" and the CD "Restless Natives & =
Rarities"
Also the A chord diagramBB side of the single "Look Away"

Tab by Colin Dawson - colin_g_dawson@hotmail.com=20
July 2002

This is one of Big Country's best early works but also one of the more=20
difficult to play live because of the number of overdubbed guitars. =
You'll=20
need to retune your guitar if you want to play along to the full version =

of the track; the extract that's near the start of the "Rarities" album =
is=20
in A chord diagramDmDm but the longer version and the version on the A chord diagramBB side of "Look =
Away"=20
are midway between A chord diagramDmDm and A chord diagramEbmEbm so you'll need to tune your guitar up a=20
quarter of a tone.

Tabbing this was a mammoth undertaking so any comments or feedback would =

be welcome.

Key:

S =3D slide
H =3D hammer-on
P =3D pull-off

Here are a couple of other parts from different versions of the song;

2nd rhythm guitar (clean sound)
This part is quite prominent in the instrumental version of Restless=20
Natives in the movie soundtrack but almost inaudible in the vocal=20
version. The instrumental version mainly repeats the intro and solo 1.
This part is played with the intro starting on the third repeat.

If you've never played using this sort of delay effect before it's quite =

easy when you get the hang of it. It's difficult to explain though.=20
Best I can do is to say that the first echo needs to arrive half way=20
between the second and third notes and from there on an echo occurs half =

way between each note which makes you sound like you're palying twice
as fast as you really are. Work on emphasising some notes and playing
others more softly to create the effect. This is a good way to start the =

song when playing live as it sets the speed; this song is hard enough to
play at normal speed but an over-enthusiastic bass & drum section can =
make
life rather difficult for most guitarists. The downside is that you miss
the excellent E-Bow part if you play it this way. Bruce uses the same=20
delay effect and mutes the strings for the last verse in the "Live in=20
Berlin" version.
