Tabbed by: Anne Drury

Corrections to main riff by: Jason
Date:  May 18, 2005

Written by:  K. Johnson, K. McAuliffe
Album:  "Hit and Run"   (1981, Bronze Records/Re-issue on Castle, 2004)

Notes:

^...bend
h...hammer on
r...release bend
p...pulloff
tp..tremolo pick
tr..trill
pm..palm mute
/...slide up
<>..pinch harmonic
x...dead note

-Tuning: Standard
-Bar lines are used to separate sections of music. They don't indicate
actual timing. The song is in 4/4 time.
-The song is in F# minor. Guitar solo parts are primarily in F# pentatonic
minor (some parts in F# minor).
-The tab of the guitar solo is a fairly loose rendering of the solo. Be
particularly wary of the fourth staff (measures 12-16 of the solo). "unin"
written on that staff means 'unintelligible', (meaning that I can't hear
exactly what the guitar is playing on that part).
-Play all chords as 5th chords.

Intro:
