San Simeon Tab

Ok, this is completely corect, I've been playing it for a long time so I know exactly
how it goes.  It's not too complicated at all, and a fairly simple song.  This is it:

Song:     San Simeon
Group:    Goldfinger
CD:       Stomping Ground
Label:    Mojo Records
Tabber:   Greenfinger182

Intro twice without words, twice with words (this has an acoustic slide with it,
so I'll tab it)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
----4-slide-9-----999999----666666-------------------------------------|X4
----4-slide-9-----999999----666666----444444----999999-----------------|
----2-slide-7-----777777----444444----444444----999999-----------------|
--------------------------------------222222----777777-----------------|

Right after he yells "SAN SIMEON!"

Wherever I go wherever I stay       my mind will always be

Then do the verse again, but this time palm-mute it.  After that you do the choru
 again, and then, guess what?  Another palm-muted verse.  But instead of just going
into the chorus again, you play this solo with the chorus chords (no words).

back.  Take me back, take me back, take me back......


Then it goes back to the acoustic intro, but after 2 times it goes into a
palm-muting electric guitar.  You'll know what I'm talking about if you've
listened to the CD.  Anyway, after that, it goes straight back to the bridge,
2 of the times he's just repeating "Take me back", but the last two times he keeps
on repeating "To San Simeon" with someone in the backround still saying "Take me
back".  After the fourth time through the chords, you end quick and sharp on:

I only tab songs if I'm 100% sure on them, and I am definitley sure about this tab.
It sounds perfect to me, so I hope you enjoyed it and it helped you to learn the
song.  Check out my other Goldfinger songs by clicking on my username up above.
Have fun playing this song with your friends/band, cause this is a great song to play
in groups.
