Another great early Bon Jovi ong I wanted to tab. I worked this out a little while ago. Im
sure this is pretty much correct. Let me know if you disagree. Enjoy the tune.


ps On the solo where theres mega whammy bar drops I saw a vid of Sambora doing this:
He used the whammy bar with his fretting hand when playing the open b string with his pickind hand.
 I t looks really cool if nothing else.
Also the last run of the solo is either really badly multi-tracked or delayed so if the end part dont sound exactly right
you could try using a delay or harmoniser pedal
