In a previous article, chris@labtam.labtam.oz.au () says:

Was requested, but the person mainly wanted chords (rather than tab).

Here is (in my opinion) the "signiture" riffs and melody of
the song. But I find it hard to adequetly describe it just with chords.


YOU GIVE LOVE A BAD NAME - Bon Jovi
===================================

Intro licks - a few like this
>|----------------------------------------|
>|----------------------------------------|
>|--10b12--12r10---8--10b12r10--8---------|
>|--------------------------------10~~~---|
>|----------------------------------------|
>|----------------------------------------|
                               ^   


Signiture
---------
This can be played single-note (like bass) or turned into chords
>by adding the fifth and octave.  (i.e X6XXXX => X688XX)
Also matches the vocal during the pre-chorus and chorus.

Verse riff (or something like it)
(Maybe get away with just a C chord here if you want to be boring?)

b       bend
r       release
^       slight-bend
~       vibrato
/\       slides
.       staccato

       use slide or hammer-on (as you wish)
       (i.e hammer-on if you play it with single-notes,
             slide if you play it as chords)
