White Tornado
R.E.M.
Dead Letter Office


    OK, this is REM's foray into surf music.  This is the only REM song 
I've ever heard which is NOT already on here, so I'm gonna post what I've 
figured out.  Apologies to Chris Bray and everyone else who've 
probably already figured this out but have yet to post.  Q's/comments to 
Chad (pimentec@sas.upenn.edu). For clean electric.

Riff 1 x2                            | first time
e----------------------0-------------|---------
b---3--1----1--3--1-------3-3h5-5-5-3|-0-3-3--1
g---------2----------2---------------|---------
				     |	

Riff 2 x2
e--------------------10-10-10-----------------------------------
b--10-13-10-13-10-10----------13-10----10^(1/2)-8-8-8-10^(1/2)-8
g-----------------------------------12--------------------------

Riff 3 (?)  D Eb D Eb D Eb E ////

repeat x3 w/drum solos in between

The rifs change slightly throughout- here are two of the variations

Riff 1*
e---------------------0----3-3-2-2-0-0----
b--3--1----1--3--1-------3-------------3-1   second time through same as 1   
g--------2----------2---------------------

Riff 2- just play e-10-10-10 in place of the e-10-10-10
		  b-10-10-10

Well that's it, at least as I've figured it.  It was all done by ear off 
of a 10 year-old tape, so I may be off.

My version of White Tornado

el----------------------------------------l
bl----------------------------------------l
gl7---5-5-4-5-7---5---4-7/9-7--7-9--7--5--l   repeat
dl----------------------------------------l
al----------------------------------------l
el----------------------------------------l

this part of the song  is repeated with subtle changes, doubled notes, 
variious slides and little time variations through the song.

el3-5/7-7-7-5-7-8-10-10-10\7-5--7b-5--------7b-5--------l
bl-----------------------------------8-7-8-------8-7-8--l
gl------------------------------------------------------l  repeat

al-----------------------------l              l-------------------l
el-----------------------------l              l-------------------l

the third time the first section is repeated it does a little something 
like this:

el------------------l
bl8-8-7-7-----------l
gl--------9-9-7-7---l
dl------------------l
al------------------l
el------------------l
