Waiting for the Son of Man (guitar)


From the Brick Shithouse tab archive.
Tabbed by Brendan.
 
In the standard Placebo tuning (F Bb Eb Ab C C)
 
This is as correct as I can do these things.

[Intro]

[Verses]
 
Repeatedly strum this: xx4666 while doing one of the two other guitar phrases, ideally on a second guitar (or bass?), though you can manage with one.
