Intro (not sure about this one):


G|———————————————————|
D|—3—3—2——x—3~—33—2——|
A|———————3—————————3~|
E|———————————————————|


Main Riff:


G|——————————————18/19|——————————————18/19—18/19|
D|———————19h18——17/18|———————19h18——17/18—17/18|
A|———U/19————————————|———U/19——————————————————|
E|—12————————————————|12120————————————————————| [repeat this or

similar pattern until the end of Cucumber Slumber Jam]


Note: "U" is usually around A—12, but don't focus on it or you'll make

it sound too uptight. The slide is the important thing.



This song is really cool, I suggest you check it out.
