    Hi All,

    I found a tab for Spybreak, by the Propellerheads, on line and need a bit of help.

    The basic riff is tabbed as:

    1 2 3 4
    G|----------------|
    D|----------------|
    A|-------0-x2-x3--|
    E|2-2-222---------|

    Two questions: what does the "x" mean?

    Also, when I play it sounds sort of right but when I listen to the piece there seems to be more notes in the measure than above. Is this just a speed issue? (ie I'm playing too slowly) or did this fellow miss a few notes?

    Do any of you know how to play this one or have the actualy sheet music for the piece? I do like this song and would like to learn how to play it but I am a new player so my ear isn't developed very well yet.

    Thanks for any help!
