You know what I like to do after dropping a tab of acid? I like to go down to the corner store and get a six-pack of Tab, bring it home and open about five tabs in Firefox, and just hit the “TAB” button on my keyboard over and over and over and over again. This causes a hallucinatory file cabinet to emerge from my skull and appear floating before me; I open it and scan each file’s tab until I find the holy grail: a music book of Frank Zappa guitar tabs. After shredding on “The Eric Dolphy Memorial Barbecue” for four hours, I head to the local bar and drink Old Grand-Dad until I come down, leave without paying my bar tab, and head to Petaluma to see Tab Benoit
