Big Country - 1000 Stars

Album - The Crossing

From: [email protected]

Guitars 'double up'on this track. The tab pretty much covers
Stuart Adamson's(Guitar 1) & Bruce Watson's(Guitar 2)parts - you'll have to choose
Which one you want to be.....unless of course you're a freak with
Two pairs of hands and a doubleneck guitar! The song is in C.

B - hammer on
P - pull off
/ - slide up
- slide down
~ - vibrato
PM- palm mute
