CAROL   -  Chuck Berry


This is another old rock and roll classic that was recorded by Chuck Berry mainly 
at the piano. This is the quintessence of Rock and Roll. John Lennon said that if
we were to give another name to Rock and Roll we should call it 'the Chuck Berry'.
I transcribed the (guitar !) Rollings Stones'live version of "get yer
ya-yas out". In the MP3 demo that you can download at the URL here above I played 
with two guitars and added a very simple and classical Rock and Roll bass .
I played the whole with rockabilly effect. 
I tabbed it all through simple listening.

There is a rhythm guitar and a solo guitar. 
Legend :

p  : pull-off
b/\: bend up then down
h  : hammer-on
n_ : last longer on this note

 When the rhythm plays full chords only (INTRO and CHORUS) the bass plays the
open string only.
