Strange Orchestras

4…STRANGE ORCHESTRAS… by Tyrannosaurus Rex
————————-…………………

*from ‘My People were Fair and had Sky in their Hair…’ (1968)*

(*NB*
This song is all played with single notes on one string.
I, however, have tabbed the CHORDS suggested by those notes,
To make it a little more fun to play!…)
