                      Lightning Bolt - TWO TOWERS
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Most of this song consists of 2 notes, however it is the subtle changes
  in timings that make it interesting.

Riff1:

  A -15-----19-----15--17--14----|
  D -----------------------------|    Repeat 4 times, then repeat 4 times an
  G -0------0------0---0----0----|    octave higher using a whammy pedal.
  C -----------------------------|


Riff2: Ahh, a nice bit of tapping to play with. I'm not entirely sure of
       the exact notes here, it kinda wibbles around a bit with the Whammy
       pedal, but it's kinda a bit like this. You'll need to listen to the song
       to get the exact number of times this kinda plays for....

Riff3: The rest of the song is all about getting the pull-off timing right,
       Once you've mastered it, it's fairly straight forward. This riff literally makes
       up for 70% of the song...

        H P   H P   H P   H P
  A ------------------------------|
  D ------------------------------|
  G -0-0-3-0-0-3-0-0-3-0-0-3-0-0--|

Riff4: This a really nice prelude to whats coming at the end of the song ;)

  G -0-5-0-0-5-0-0-9-0-0-9-0-0-7-0-0-7-0-0-3-0-0-3-0-|

  then into....

Riff5:

  C -------------------------------------------------|

  Then back to Riff 3 for absolutely ages. There are a few subtle
  variations in timing, but I can't be bothered to write them out. I suppose
  it depends how good your drummer is as to whether you can pull them off...

Riff6:  At around 4'50 into the song, Riff4 and 5 repeat again, and then lead into this:
       (The timing on this is really difficult to get, start slow and build up).

  C -------------------------------------------------|

  I'm pretty sure this riff just repeats until the end of the song. I *think* Brian
  justs uses a Whammy pedal cunningly to quickly slide back and forth an octave.


 And there it is.  Yeah!
