/ The Verve / A Storm in Heaven (1993) / Star Sail guitar tab

Artist: Verve
Song:   Star Sail
Album:  A Storm In Heaven
Transcriber: T. Barefoot 
Added By Mikhailo

The tracks on A Storm In Heaven don't lend themselves well
to transcription.  But maybe that's one reason why I think
this disc so great.

Here are some fragments from Star Sail:

Intro
E---0---
B---2---
G---2---  Chord comes in with a quick volume swell,
D---2---  maybe using an envelope generator
A---0---
E---0---

"Solo"
These few notes are pure genius. The way the sound evolves
here is just incredible.  A semi-hollow body guitar like a
Gibson ES series seems critical for reproducing this.

after "....crying out are you there?"
