thorn in my pride

WARNING: this tab is for open G tuning (my favorite) with the capo 
         on the third fret, to subsequently give open Bflat tuning
         i also tabbed it in standard form (so a 3 actually isn't 
         a 3, but a 6) just to cause more difficulty  :)
         this is also from memory, so please bear with me.........
THORN IN MY PRIDE          (ho = hammer off)

repeat above three lines, this is the basic pattern Rich plays thru out the
song.
his chord formations:
 Bflat (open)         Eflat 
                                       and if i recall, those are the only
 0 0 0 0 0 0       0 0 2 0 1 0         two chords that he uses !!!
for the chorus, Marc Ford plays this bit:
||------5-------------5----------------------------------

***(the mighty verses:)
Bflat (1st rhythm pattern thru out all verses)
Wake me when the day breaks
show me how the sun shines
                         Eflat
tell me bout your heart--aches
Eflat(ho) Bflat
     who could be so unkind
Bflat
do you dream to touch me 
and smile down deep inside
                         Eflat
or could you just kill   me
           Eflat(ho) Bflat
yeah, it's        hard to make up your mind sometimes
CHORUS:
Bflat
angel, devil, a thorn in my pride
my angels, my devils, a thorn in my pride
(1st riff again)
Bflat
are you wanting inspiration
you spill your secrets on me
                              Eflat
then you tell me with a whis--per
      Eflat(ho) Bflat
of     things that will never be
Bflat
do you hear me breathing
does it make you wanna scream
                          Eflat
did you ever like a bad   dream
        Eflat(ho) Bflat
yeah, sometimes life is obscene
CHORUS:
Bflat
angel, devil, a thorn in my pride
my angels, my devils baby, a thorn in my pride
*** this is the little interlude where Chris goes nuts
*** i play the progression something like this (just groove however it 
*** feels):
||-----------------------0----0----------------------------------------------
||-----------------------1----0----------------------1---1h-(0)-------=------
||--2/slide-4---2---0----0----0---0----0-------------------------------------
||-----------------------2----0-------------0ho-(2)--------------------------
||--2/slide-4---2---0----0----0-----0----------------------------0-----------
||---------------------------------------------------------------------------
lover, cover me with your sleep
let your love light shine, let it shine
lover, cover me with a good dream
ooh, let your love light shine, let it shine
(solo - based on same verse riffs)
and the rest of the song, you can figure out from what i've put
up above
of course, Rich never plays a song the same way twice, so just try it 
a few times and do whatever feels comfortable
i apologize for not tabbing the solos, and other parts that the lead
guitar plays, i'm more of a "rhythm makes the song" player, so that's 
what i listen for (besides, Marc never plays a solo or fill the same
way either :)   )
