                Right, here is a classic Manics track!
Little Baby Nothing 

The Intro is played using two twelve string steel guitars, guitar 1 is the main guitar it uses
a clean sound with strong reverb and a thick chorus, guitar 2 uses a 
slightly broken tremelo arm. I have transcribed it for a six string guitar
because my Dad accidentally spilled petrol into my twelve stringer! Both guitars
are finger picked throughout.

For the live version played at Sheffield Octagon in October 1994, you may want to
jam the strings into the pickups at the end, and snap off the tremelo
arm.
