Face In The Rain - Be Bop Deluxe

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by twilightcapers

 

A bit obscure this one - it was available on vinyl on the album Best Of/Rest Of Be Bop Deluxe, not sure if you can get it on CD anymore.  

I had to use a Youtube video for reference.  

You will have to use your thumb to hold the bass note of the 'Fadd9' chords near the end. 

 

Tuning: EADGBe

 

| h  hammer-on

| p  pull-off

| x  Mute note

| G/B chord/bass note

 

 

Intro: Acoustic guitar...
