                             SLEEP DIRT   -   Frank Zappa
                             ----------------------------


                               Tabbed by  Sharon Frenkel
                                shrfrn@netvision.net.il

This is the accompaniment for the SLEEP DIRT track on the
SLEEP DIRT Album. It has several reefs that are repeated, but
never in the exact same order, so I've just laid them all down
in sequence. You'll thus find many repetitions.

Those of you familiar with the track will catch up quickly.
The rest of you - Get the Album!!!

I haven?t seen a version of this before so I hope this is a nice
contribution. If any of you ever get the solo nailed down (Dah!)
and transcribed (ya right!), please let me know.

About the artist behind Sleep Dirt Tab:

Frank Vincent Zappa[1] (December 21, 1940 – December 4, 1993) was an American composer, musician, and film director. In a career spanning more than 30 years, Zappa established himself as a prolific and highly distinctive composer, electric guitar player and band leader. He worked in various different musical genres and wrote music for rock bands, jazz ensembles, synthesizers and symphony orchestra, as well as musique concrète works constructed from pre-recorded, synthesized or sampled sources. In addition to his music recordings, he created feature-length and short films, music videos, and album covers.

Although his major commercial successes, especially within his native United States, were few in number, he maintained a highly productive career that encompassed composing, recording, touring, producing and merchandising his own and others' music. Zappa self-produced almost every one of the more than sixty albums he released with the Mothers of Invention or as a solo artist. He received multiple Grammy nominations and won for Best Rock Instrumental Performance in 1988 for the album Jazz from Hell.[2] Zappa was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, and received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1997. In 2005, his 1968 album with the Mothers of Invention, We're Only in It for the Money, was inducted into the United States National Recording Preservation Board's National Recording Registry. The same year, Rolling Stone magazine ranked him #71 on its list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[3] In 2007, his birthplace Baltimore declared August 9 official "Frank Zappa Day" in his honor.[4]

Politically, Zappa was a self-proclaimed "practical conservative."[5] He was also a strident critic of mainstream education and organized religion.[6] Zappa was a forthright and passionate advocate for freedom of speech and the abolition of censorship, and his work embodied his skeptical view of established political processes and structures.[7] Although many assumed that he used drugs like many musicians of the time, Zappa strongly opposed recreational drug use.[8] Zappa was married to Kathryn J. "Kay" Sherman (1960–1964; no children), and then in 1967 to Adelaide Gail Sloatman, with whom he remained until his death in December 1993 of prostate cancer. They had four children: Moon Unit, Dweezil, Ahmet Emuukha Rodan and Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen. Gail Zappa handles the businesses of her late husband under the company name the Zappa Family Trust.
