Breaking Glass

David Bowie - Breaking Glass 
from the album "Low" 
1977 
(written by David Bowie, produced by David Bowie and Tony Visconti) 
 
Another tune from the excellent Bowie album "Low", this short  
but sweet song consists of two basic guitar riffs.  There are of course a  
number of Eno sonic treatments not easily transcribed.  Carlos Alomar does 
not repeat the riffs exactly each time through, but the basics are here. 
Have a listen to the recording to get a feel for the song.  The tab written 
here is merely a guide to get started in the right direction with the  
lead guitar.   
 
 
Intro (riff 1)

Baby, I've been, breaking glass in your room again 
Don't look at the carpet,  I drew something awful on it 
(riff 2)
