    Thanks Roadkill! I'd about given up on finding anything useful for this song. Is there a method to your capitalization madness?

    Yes, the capital letters are the lower notes starting at "E" and the small letters are the octave above - so they go:
    EFGABCDefgabcd
    But to complicate that I've recently switched to DGCF tuning so now I go:
    DEFGABCdefgabc
    :D

    Hmmm... not sure about your notation or notes- but this should get you started on the right track:

    Intro (repeat twice) (2x 4 bars for 8 bar intro)
    G-----------|-5---77-8-9-|-------------|------------------3|
    D------5/7-|-------------|-------------|---2---3----4--5--|
    A---3-------|------------|--3----------|--------------------|
    E-----------|-------------|-------------|--------------------|

    Verse (bouncy short staccato notes- lots of walks between C and G Chords then to F, Eflat, C for the chorus)
    D---------------------|--------------2-5|--5-3-3-----3---|----0-0-1-1-2-3
    A---3-3-1-1-----1---|----2-3-5-5-----|---------5-5---5-|3-3-------------
    E-------------3-3--3-|--3--------------|-------------------|-----------------

    Toss in the smaller font lower case b for the flats and it all works exactly as I thought it did. Thanks again Roadkill.

    That is a big help obimark, thanks. So far the best I had found before your's and Roadkill's was a passing remark "just do a riff in C over the pentatonic".

    Yep, that's how it works. I have about 175 tunes in this notation if of interest to you:

    Anything with an "X" at the end is a work in progress and/or just the main riffs/chords/whatever needed to get through it :) . Level of detail varies in the other ones.
