                FRANK ZAPPA - Zoot Allures

This is the basic arrangement for the header of Zappa's ZOOT ALLURES. This
is most like the original Zoot arrangement heard on You Can't Do That On
Stage Anymore Vol3.

Notes: 
-The opening notes with the open A-string should be left to ring.
-The area between the double lines is repeated. 
-The dots above certain chords means play staccato.
- ' x\ ' means slide down the neck.

Frank also does many different filler riffs during various sections. A
common one that he does during the bit marked with ' * ' is like this:

------------------------------!
-8-8-8-7-5-5-5h7-5h7-8p7-5-7--!
-7-7-7-7-5-5-5h7-5h7-7---5-7--!
-7-7-7-7-5-5-5h7-5h7-7---5-7--!
-5-5-5-5-5-5-5---5-------5-5--!
------------------------------!

Anyway play this with a guitar on the edge of feedback and listen to some
of the great versions Frank does of it to get the timing and phrasing
right.
