Porrohman by Big Country from the album "The Crossing"

Tabbed by Colin Dawson; colin_g_dawson@hotmail.com - July 2002
Updated January 2006

Comments and corrections welcome!

 

If you compare the KBFH, the Berlin and the Final Fling live versions of Porrohman,
it's noticeable how the use of effects changed over the years.

The KBFH version uses pitch shifters, chorus and lots of digital delay. The Berlin
version uses a bit less delay, keeps the chorus and the pitch shifters and adds
keyboards. The Final Fling version uses chorus, less delay and no pitch shifters.
Bruce has a far more powerful guitar sound in the FF version, and the intro is
truncated somewhat.

I've tried to tab The Crossing version here.

 

h = hammer
p = pull
s = slide
SsssssSsssss = deaden strings with left hand and make percussive sound in sync
with drums.
~ = sustain with e-Bow

 

Intro;
Stuart plays the intro with lots of delay; delay volume only slightly lower than
the  original signal. Use lots of repeats on the delay and use chorus to fill out
the sound. You'll get a great effect and the delay does a lot of the work for you.

Clean sound with lots of delay & chorus. Strum the first & third chords
- the C#m - slowly UP the way and let the delay create a cascade effect.
Note that the B6 and the B7 were introduced in the live versions from 1987
onwards. Prior to this it just stayed on the B.

E-bow after 1st verse. Use lots of delay, some distortion, chorus 
(see Alternative at end if you don't have an e-bow). There are two e-Bow parts
in harmony here. I've tabbed e-Bow part 2 at the end of this tab

To make this next bit easier to tab, I've used the following shorthand;

6 = 16th fret
7 = 17th fret
8 = 18th fret
9 = 19th fret
0 = 20th fret
1 = 21st fret

Alternative to Stuart's E-bow solo;

If you don't have an E-bow or have one and can't use it (I remember seeing
Mick Ronson trying to control one and failing miserably so it's nothing
to be ashamed of) try the following. Use a volume pedal to fade notes in as
required - this works quite well;
