Collateral Damage by Steve Morse
              off the Coast to Coast album

This song ins't that tough as far as Steve Morse's guitar work goes. There
are a few tricky parts but I got most of it.
This is the intro, play it 2 times                          figure 1
e-------------------------------t-p-h--------------------t-p--h---------e

This is the other cool tapping part, Steve and the bass mirror each other.
                                       figure 1b
e---------------------------------------------------|-------------------e

e---------------------------------------7-2-5-7-2-3-|-------------------e

Here the guitar hangs with the oper A chord diagramE MajorE and the bass does some stuff with
touch harmonics
            bass touch harmonics
e-----------------------------------------------------------------------e
b                                                                       b
g                                                                       g
d                                                                       d
a                                                                       a
e-0~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~-e

Now the guitar gets to do some touch harmonics, on the album Steve does it
so clean that you can hardly tell they are harmonics at all
* touch harmonics are made by fretting a note in first position and then
while holding your pick with your middle and thumb fingers and hitting the

note as a harmonic with you index finger in second position.

Now the bass and guitar weave rhythems back and forth, its hard to explane
you will just have to listen to the track your self.

Now there is the sick walking bass line and the guitar holds the A chord diagramE MajorE for a
while

 this part is kind of like a bridge, so thats what weÕll call it
                                              Bridge

Thats everything except the guitar solo, which I know but I donÕt have the
time to transcribe right now but I will in the near future.

This is the order of the song
Figure 1
figure1b
bass touch harmonics
guitar touch harmonics
riff1
riff1b
figure2
walking bass line

bridge
figure 3
figure 2
bass solo
super shed riff
guitar solo
*figure 3 twice
figure 1
figure 1b
fade out

* the guitar solo connects with figure 3, theyÕre on the same scale.


I you have any questions or comments on this transcription E- mail me at
al@leggett.k12.ca.us.
Also any other Steve Morse fans out there? or better yet any Steve Morse
fans with any trascriptions of either Steve Morse Band or Dixie Dregs, if
