Death by Guitar: (or "Silent Anticipations" by Michael Hedges)

Line numbers at far left; string tuning shown for all strings
h = harmonic        s = stringslap (generic punishment, no precision

roughly repeat the above (more or less) about three times, after which:

 E---------------------3---------------------------------------
 C---------------------3---again, several strums upon this-----
0G---------------------3---chord, as what whim moves you,------
8D-lo3--3--3->-10-p-0--1---and then a repeat of line 06, only--
 A-lo3--3--3->-10-p-0--1---with an extra 12h arpeggio before --
 D-lo3--3--3->-10-p-0--1---the 7h and 5h ones. Listen....------

 ...and after THAT....about three more times of line 07, then
 another of line eight, at which point it takes off from the:







 E--3-.--5--.--7--.--8--.--7--.--5--.--7--.--8--.--8--The dots-
 C--3-.--5--.--7--.--8--.--7--.--5--.--7--.--8--.--8--are for--

 D--1-.--3--.--5--.--6--.--5--.--3--.--5--.--6--.--8--vyze]]---

After all this, one starts the mad bury-steel-splinters-in-yo-
thumb slide parts, thusly:

 E-----------0---------0---------0--------3-----5--------------
 C-----------0---------0---------0--------3-----5--------------
1G-----------0---------0---------0--------3-----5--------------
0D--lo3-->--10--3-->--10--3-->--10--p--0--1-->--3--------------
 A--lo3-->--10--3-->--10--3-->--10--p--0--1-->--3--------------
 D--lo3-->--10--3-->--10--3-->--10--p--0--1-->--3--------------

This also repeats about three times, then follows another line 09,
then another set of these, and then...oh, eventually a crash'n'burn
variation on line 06 with lots of offkey harmonics, screeching to a
halt with a ferocious hammer-on over the neck with the left hand
on a 333000 chord, after which collapse from oxygen depletion is in
order, and makes a touching finale.
*    *      *           *     **    *     *     **    **    *
     So...let's see where I can further confuse the issue....
Line 03: the 3h is an octave up from the 7h and sounds wonderful,
if it can be coaxed into being. All those initial harmonic chords
are nice slightly arpeggiated, although just a fist-impact (*POW]*)
will do as well.
   Line 05: the X7h7h7h7h15 is indeed a bit of a stretch, so I
often use the other harmonic node (don't ask at which fret, my
hyperoctaves aren't too great) which involves a flamenco-style
right-handed strum with the heel of the thumb brushing the
strings at the requisite fret to get the harmonic. It's about
fret 18 or 20 or something; two before the hole on my machine.
    Line 06: the harmonics can also be arpeggiated; he does them
both ways, since that line more or less crops up more than once.
    Line 07: He accompanies the slap against the body with a
short strum, or something. It comes out slightly different when
I play it; too much intuition fluxing it up, I guess. He frets the
slide from lo3 to pulloff to the 12h (or whatever sounds good; I
do it a bit differently, and this may not be exact...prob'ly ain't)
with his left index finger over the neck, then hits the 555555
    Line 08: The lo3's (and following slides later on) are fretted
over the neck with the left thumb. Most of the overneck hammer-ons
are pinch-hit with the left index and thumb.
    Line 10: All the 333000's preceeding a slide to 10's are fretted
over the neck with the left thumb. Get ready for the smoke to fly;
I still can't play this fast enough. I think he must oil his strings:)
