Waking Up In 1959

Song written by Garry Schyman for Bioshock 2

Song transcribed and tabbed by Austin (A Dead Fly) August 6, 2010


Simple, but fun beautiful song to play, a little fast for beginners.
Harps, pianos, strings, and synthesizers transcribed for guitar.

I labeled one of the tracks cello, but it is possible that it could
be a violin, a viola, or a combination of the three.

All lead and rythym notes are quarter notes except where noted.
