    LIONS OF THE SEA, for guitar & vocals

This transcription is for a standard tuned guitar (E,A,D,G,B,e), but
I think that R.W. uses 1/2 de-tuned guitars & bass guitars.
So, if you de-tune your guitar, be careful: If you see in the tab, for
example, A chord diagramBB chord:
---------                         ----------
---------                         ----------
---4-----                        ---5------
---4-----  ====> DETUNED will be ---5------    played as A chord diagramC majorC chord in a
---2-----                         --3------    standard tuned guitar.
---------                         ----------
   A chord diagramBB                                 A chord diagramBB

 ...And the same for all the other chords & arpegios.

For playing, you only must get the timing of the CD and follow the "tab",
I write apart the different parts of the song. Follow the tab and you'll
find easy to read (or not...).

Ok. More things. All the chords are played like 5ths, this is:

    A chord diagramG#G#  A chord diagramBB  .... Etc. You got the idea.

A chord diagramBB --------
A chord diagramG+G -----4--
A chord diagramD MajorD -6---4--
A chord diagramA augmentedA -6---2--
A chord diagramE MajorE -4-------

I think that's all. For any question, mistake, CONSTRUCTIVE critic,
or to say me something, feel free to e-mail me at:
