    It's in the TB Tab archives, under Hamm comma Stu. (There might not be a comma.) The name of the song is "Linus and Lucy".
     
  4. It's also played in 2 hand tap stlye, if that helps any. Very fun song to play once you get it down. It took me about a month and I'm still having a hell of a time with it.

  6. i went to ultimateguitar.com and was appalled to find that they called silverchair 'punk' :spit:
     
  7. Ironic this thread came up...I just recently took Linus and Lucy and built a bass solo around it...I love it! In fact, Im gonna bust it out to the audience at tomorrow nights show! Wish me luck, Ill let ya know....
     
  8. Linus and Lucy..

    one of the first tapping song i learnt ..!!!!!

    As i always tell people....

    Think of Tapping as playing the piano and u cant go far wrong...

    start slow
    learn the bass part
    learn the melody part

    put each bit together note by note....very slowly and build and build..:)...

    I do not have the tab, but I do have a piano score (bass and treble clef) for "Linus and Lucy" which is true to the original composition by Vince Guaraldi. The tune, rightly or wrongly, is scored in key signature A flat (4 flats). Then, the first section alternates between A flat major and C flat major. Your confusion with determining the key is understandable (and shared).

    If you wish to send me an email address, I will be glad to give you what I have.
