GALAPAGOS

This is only the start part at this stage but it is 
surely the hardest part.

1/2 step down

Bass is 1/2 step down, but also dropped D (actually Db)

Guitar Intro
 1a                       1b                     \
e|-------------------------|-9-------9-------|     |
B|------10--------10-------|---10------10----|     |
G|---------11--------11----|------11------11-|     | 2x
D|---12--------12-------12-|-----------------|     |
A|-0-----------------------|-----------------|     |
E|-------------------------|-----------------|     /

Bass Intro                                            \
e|----------------------------------------------------| |
B|----------------------------------------------------| |
G|----------------------------------------------------| | 2x
D|----------------------------------------------------| |

|----------------------------------------------------| 
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|/5-----------------------5--4--2-----0--0-----------| 

 You will work out the pattern of the song.
 First it plays 1a then 1b, then the next it plays
 1a a couple of times before going to 1b.

 The chord that is strummed on each beat later in is the
 following:

 e-9--|
 B-10-|
 G-11-|
 D-12-|
 A----|
 E----|

 That's about all I have at the moment.  Most of it is correct.
 Maybe a couple of notes are wrong in that section that changes
 to the barred twelvth fret.

 Send me any comments please.  I like to hear from people who
 actually use these tabs.
