-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
			   IN THEE - Blue Oyster Cult
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Anne Drury
Email: zerofret_ad@hotmail.com
Date: September 13, 2005

Written by: A. Lanier
CD: "Mirrors"   (1979, Columbia Records)

Notes:

^...bend   (w=whole step)
h...hammer on
p...pulloff
r...release bend
/...slide up
\...slide down
<>..harmonic
x...dead note
~...vibrato
=...hold note


-Tuning: Standard
-strum pattern is shown for Intro & Verses (same for both): d=down, u=up
-chords are written in for only one verse (to avoid tab looking cluttered),
but chords are the same for all verses
-for harmonics, fret the note indicated, then play harmonic an octave (12
frets) up from that note
-I don't know the name of the second to last chord in the Chorus - I
put the notes (F,B,D) into a chord finder and it came out as
F flat5 6th (no 3rd), so that's what I'll call it. It's played like this:
    EADGBE
    xxx431
-bar lines indicate measures of 4/4 time
-song is in A Major, except for guitar solo section which is in D (solo
is in D Major)
