From: Micah Newman 

	I've been trying to figure out the simple yet elegant guitar part
that frames 'Tape', from 'Show', for a while, and I recently got it, and
hit myself for being so stupid beforehand. It is as simple as can be.
	I had been trying to figure it out in standard tuning, but, since
the piece segues into 'Open', it of course uses the same Gm7 open tuning
as that song so the tones melt right into each other. It consists simply
of a 12th-fret natural harmonic arpeggio right up the strings, and then
the same exact thing on the 7th fret.
	For those of you who may not have used harmonics, you just bar your
middle or index finger directly above the fret, with your finger *just*
touching the strings. Don't press down too hard, or you'll dampen them.
Here's the tab (the note indicated in front of each string is what that
string is tuned to) -

G ------------------------|--------------------|
F ------------------------|--------------------|
G ----[let ring]----------|----[let ring]------|


P.S.: Sorry if I may have insulted the intelligence of some guitar players
out there by explaining all the terminology, but I assumed that those who
knew what I was talking about might have figured all this out on their
own anyway. This is pretty much meant for people like me who don't really
know guitar that well.

About the artist behind Tape Tab:

The Cure are an English rock band that formed in Crawley, Sussex in 1976. The band have experienced several lineup changes, with frontman, guitarist and main songwriter Robert Smith—known for his iconic wild hair, pale complexion, smudged lipstick and frequently gloomy and introspective lyrics—being the only constant member.

The members of The Cure first started releasing music in the late 1970s. Their first album, Three Imaginary Boys (1979), and early singles placed them as part of the post-punk and New Wave movements that had sprung up in the wake of the punk rock revolution in the United Kingdom. During the early 1980s the band's increasingly dark and tormented music helped form the gothic rock genre. After the release of 1982's Pornography, the band's future was uncertain and frontman Robert Smith was keen to move past the gloomy reputation his band had cultivated. With the 1982 single "Let's Go to Bed" Smith began to inject more of a pop sensibility into the band's music. The Cure's popularity increased as the decade wore on, especially in the United States, where the songs "Just Like Heaven", "Lovesong" and "Friday I'm in Love" entered the Billboard Top 40 charts. By the start of the 1990s, The Cure were one of the most popular alternative rock bands in the world and have sold an estimated 27 million albums as of 2004.[1] As of 2007, The Cure have released twelve studio albums and over thirty singles, with a thirteenth album due in September 2008.
