Year: 1990 - Album: The Crossing

  		From: [email protected] 
 
From the bands 1983 debut album, what follows is lead guitarist 
Stuart Adamson's guitar part which is pretty much the feel and 
sound of the whole song. I've included the E-bowed guitar 
riff that accompanies the bridge section - it was omitted from 
live performances of the song.The song is in A. 
 
 
PM = palm mute - mute the strings with the palm of your hand 
h  = hammer on 
p  = pull off 
/  = slide up 
\  = slide down 
t  = tap (with strumming hand)
