	          Dont Fear (The Reaper)- Blue Oyster Cult
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tuning:Stanadard

I think I'll just leave out the obvious cowbell/Will Ferrel jokes....

The previous tab of this song was a bit simplistic, so I have tried to give a more
in depth tab without getting bogged down in all the variations. If you listen
closely, you will realize that the bass varies the main riff almost every other bar,
yet if you follow this tab you will be able to figure it out for yourself.

NOTE: There are many variations to the main riff throughout the song! These are
just a few. Most of the others involve dead notes (X) and slides.


    Cowbell rythym for the whole song
