Dont Call It Love Tab

   
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
			 DON'T CALL IT LOVE - Girlschool
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Anne Drury
Email: zerofret_ad@hotmail.com
Date: May 30, 2005
(This tab is the transcriber's own work.)

Written by:  K. McAuliffe, K. Johnson
Album:  "Screaming Blue Murder" 
(1982, Bronze Records/Re-issue on Castle, 2004)

Tuning: Standard

Notes:

^....bend  
h....hammer on
r....release bend   
hb...hold bend  (hold bend while playing notes within square brackets)
p....pulloff
/....slide up
\....slide down
~....vibrato

-This tab is based on the Chris Tsangarides produced re-mix of the 
song, which is the version that was on the North American release 
of "Screaming Blue Murder". The two versions (the other being the 
original Nigel Gray produced version which appeared on the UK release 
of "SBM"), are basically the same, with the re-mix adding a harmonized 
guitar line, and some slight changes to the main riff, the guitar 
solo, and the guitar during the fade.(See note at end of tab.)
-The song is in the key of F# minor. All lead guitar parts are in 
F# minor. 
-Timing: The song is in 4/4 time. The bar lines in Figure 3 and in the
guitar solo indicate measures of 4/4 time. The bar lines in Figure 2 
and the Fade are used to separate sections of music, and don't 
indicate actual timing.

During Figure 1, rhythm guitar plays chords shown above the staff in an
eighth note rhythm. That rhythm part is always part of Figure 1.



Figure 2 - three part harmony guitar
(All 3 lines are 8 measures. The chords shown for the melody line apply
to all 3 lines.)

1st Verse:
                                   
You know I've seen this all before    
And I know what you're waiting for      
But I won't be fooled again           
By someone like you                
Play Figure 1 2x (with above lyrics)

I knew right from the start
That you could break my heart
Play Figure 3 (with above lyrics)



Chorus:

Don't call it love...(4x)
Play Figure 2



2nd Verse:

And now you seem so far away
But for me it's just another day
You know the good times go so fast
They never last
Play Figure 1 2x

And it would take some time
For you to change my mind
Play Figure 3



Chorus:

Don't call it love...(4x)
Play Figure 2


[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/g/girlschool/dont_call_it_love_tab.html ]
Then: Play Figure 1 2x
2nd time through, play it like this (1 slight variation):

The last staff of the guitar solo overlaps where the vocal re-enters, for
4 measures.



Chorus:

Don't call it love...(4x)
Play Figure 2


The following two choruses also have a harmonized lead guitar part playing
behind the vocal. I couldn't hear the parts clearly enough to tab them.


F#(5)                A(5)
Please don't call it love
                     E(5)
Please don't call it love
                     C#(5)
Please don't call it love


F#(5)                A(5)
Please don't call it love
                            E(5)
Give me the moon and stars above
                         C#(5)
But please don't call it love
              F#(5)
Don't call it love

Note: 
The re-mixed version of the "Screaming Blue Murder" album isn't 
available on CD. Both re-issues I'm aware of (on Dojo/1991 and on
Castle/2004) are the original UK release. The re-mixed version of 
"Don't Call It Love" is available on the following Girlschool 
compilation CDs:

"The Very Best Of Girlschool"   (2002, Castle US)
"From the Vaults"   (1994, Sequel Records)
"C'mon Let's Go"    (1991, Marble Arch/Castle)
