My Little Empire
 by The Manic Street Preachers
 Track 6 off the album 'This Is My Truth tell Me Yours' (1998).

 Music: James Dean Bradfield / Sean Moore
 Lyrics: Nicky Wire

 Tabbed by Khujifig

 ~	make note wibble.
 h	hammer on
 p	pull off
 b	bend
 r	release the bend you just did.
 \	slide down
 /	slide up
 ()	play these quietly / lightly.
 x	muted string (goes 'thunk').


Notes:
This is played on a clean electric, standard tuning.
I've spent ages trying to get the intro right, and I'm
pretty sure it's accurate (yes, it's all my own work).
In places, there's a rest just when you think you ought
to play something, and in others, you play something
when you feel you shouldn't. Listen to the CD carefully,
and see.
Also, some of the bends are really quick, and some are
quite slow. The rythmn is a little erratic too, so have
patience with this.
The verse are mostly empty, and then at the end of the
line, James playes some little riff or other. I've
omitted all the space, but you should be able to tell
where all this fits. I hope all this is clear.
Any questions/comments/corrections/sTuff, send them to
khujifig@mindless.com
Special thanks to Sarah, without whom you wouldn't be
reading this tab.

Above, you have to bend the 14's about half
a step almost every note. Play the last A chord diagramA augmentedA
(the 14) 22 times(!), just mix up and down strokes.
