Year Of The Boomerang

Transcribed by Chris Townsend (psychic_pup@hotmail.com)

Here's all the main riffs I can think off.
Use them in whatever order they appear.
I'm not sure about any of this since I've never seen the song being played
by the band.

Dropped D tuning

X= Strike Muted Strings (D=Down stroke,U=Up Stroke)
h= harmonic
h/o = hammer on
p/o = pull off

1)Main riff. Use Neck Pickup.
h/o U h/o D U D
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------
D|-------X---0--2-------X-X-X------------------------------------------------
A|-------X--------------X-X-X------------------------------------------------
D|-0--2--X--------0--2--X-X-X------------------------------------------------
h/o


2)Nice Jazzy bit. Use Neck Pickup with mid volume.

D|------7--------7----------7-------7--------3-------5-----3----------------
A|----5--------5----------7-------7--------3-------5-----3------------------
D|--0--------0----------7-------7--------3-------5-----3-----3/10 b 12 r 10-
The sistas are..

3)Whammy Bit.
Set Whammy on Double Octave Up. Use neck pickup, and adjust Volume to about
half way to eliminate the unwanted Noise caused by the delightful Whammy Pedal

5)Fast Angry Bit
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
A|----------------0---------------------------------------------------------
D|-2--4--4--4--4------------------------------------------------------------
Yeah!

(Then play this Chord over the previous riff and yes I'm not sure if
its right coz I dont have a copy of the song or my guitar with me so there)
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------
B|--9------------------------------------------------------------------------
G|--9------------------------------------------------------------------------
D|--9------------------------------------------------------------------------
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------



6)I cant describe the final "go crazy on the whammy pedal" bit other than
use the whammy on double octave up setting, pick really fast and hard and
end it on a couple of bends.
