Band   : Bipolar
Song   : Maybe ["what i am"]; appearing on C-Weed 3
Tabbed by  : M.Wissekerke
e-mail  : wissekmi@cliffeng.com
Tuning  : all strings down one step.

therefore that equates to
e = d
b = a
g = f
d = c
a = g
e = d

[performance notes - live versus recording]
in the studio when we recorded this song you have the option of over dubbing and
layering multiple guitar tracks. in places on the song there is only one guitar
and in others there are 3 guitars. i've tried to keep the tab as close to how i
play it live. in the third verse there are harmonics that get played; they are
on the f-a-d strings respectively and get played on the 12th and 19th frets
respectively. also it was sort of an ad-lib thing so make up your own variation.

also the rhthym of how i tabbed the song isn't very good. so give the song a listen

note the general verse structure when the singing enters is for 3 bars and then
depending on which chorus you are entering you play the verse alternate structure
for one bar.

[2nd & 3rd verse alternate]
[effects used: clean then overdriven guitar, depending on what sound your going for overdrive
