Rockers! Happy Halloween.
Wow, I've got a cool piece for you to play today! You're gonna love it. I was in my teaching room yesterday, showing one of my cool clients named Evan the theme song to the Halloween movie. (A special thanks to the contributors here at UG for their tabs!)
Now, if you listen to the theme song, there's the spooky melody line, and then there's that ominous cello part in the background. I was showing Evan how to play both parts, when suddenly Evan earned himself the nickname Moze- for Mozart. He said - Why not use tapping, and play both parts at once? Brilliant! Rock on, Moze! Here's the arrangement suggested by the Moze himself.
In the tab above, you'll tap the melody line with your left hand. You'll reach over, and hammer on the power chords with your right hand as you're playing the melody line. Make sure you let the chords ring out - it's not notated correctly in the music, but that's called Josh wrestling with Guitar Pro 5. Here's what it looks like:
Ursula - I found your scrunchie! Lyle, from George of the Jungle
Wait! We might run into a problem. If we're using distortion, and I recommend it, you'll notice that there's an incredible amount of string noise as we trying to tap and hammer everything. Arrgh! What to do? Go ask your sister (nicely) if you can borrow a hair scrunchie... You know, the kind that keep ponytails doing their thing. If you're the.001% of the readers, and you actually happen to own a scrunchie (either as a guitarist for the poison tribute band, or a girl), well, fetch it as fast as you can!
Put it around the strings at the 1st fret. This will mute out the open strings considerably, and make your job a lot easier. You may get some funny looks, but deal with it, sucka!
Remember to let the chords ring out as you tap the spooky melody line. Again, practice makes perfect, so take your time, and use a metronome.
