Joe Satriani: "Ceremony" off Crystal Planet
tab by Yuri Zhukov

Comments, corrections, constructive critisism welcome.

This is pretty straightforward. For a Satch song, "Ceremony" is
pretty easy. I know he uses a ton of effects on this song, but
all you really need is a wah and overdrive. I tabbed it out the
way I play it. I know some of the positions can be kind of awkward
for some people, especially when you get to the solo. I don't
know, I love long streches, and I know Joe does, too. Just
make sure you warm up first.

Key:
^=legato
9(11)=bend note to pitch in parentheses
~=vibrato
ph=pinch harmonic
t=tap

Back to main theme.

Then Joe does a little outro solo, it's basically
just tremolo picking triads on the C#minor scale.
