SUMMERTIME (Guitar 2) - Big Brother and the Holding Company, 1966
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Rhythm guitar/countermelody tab


Tuning: Standard

Hey! One often neglected thing which makes Summertime truly psychedelic is the duet 
between Sam Andrew and James Gurley, giving the song an interesting texture. So if you have 
a jam buddy, here is James Gurley's countermelody, which plays throughout the song.

If you are looking for the lead guitar in Summertime, see my tab "Summertime (ver 2)".

As always, make sure to slow down your playing and speed up a segment only when you can 
play it comfortably. There are parts where James Gurley's guitar is silent, so I left a 
blank area for those. I will include timecode to avoid confusion.

************************************
LEGEND

pb = Pre-bend; bend to the note and play it, then release to normal position. So pb7r5
means you bend the 5th fret to 7, then you hit the note, then release down to 5 as it is ringing.

b  = Bend to the note indicated eg. 8b10
r  = Release bend to normal position
~  = Vibrato (let note ring for double/triple stops)
h  = Hammer on
/  = slide up
\  = slide down
() = optional note
