She Likes Surprises

Standard tuning.

The sliding is not that important and is not necessarily even correct, but I think it sounds more like the recording if you slide as indicated.

LEGEND:
^ bend up step value indicated (1/2 = equivalent of 1 fret)
v release bend
( ) implied note, do not pluck
/ slide up
\ slide down
