                         Don\'t Believe A Word -- Gary Moore
                          transcription by Stefano Serafin






Note: Both in the lead guitar and in the bass part, chords only indicate the
overall harmony. There\'s no rhythm guitar strumming the chords.

As to the lead guitar part... there\'s neither bar division nor rhythm notation.
I hope you understand, it seemed impossible to me... anyhow I wrote indicative
chord names above the tab and tried to divide the solo in \"phrases\". Maybe
this is not what Gary Moore actually plays, but I think it\'s a very good
approximation.
Here it is:

Now and then there\'s a second guitar playing chords on the high positions,
e.G. (from low e to high e):
Dm: x-x-12-10-10-10, or Em7: x-x-9-9-8-10, or Am: x-x-x-14-13-12.


In the final (shuffle) part, just play chords and notes around the 5th and 7th
fret with a little bit of improvisation.






As to the bass part... there are some variations to the progression here and
there, so I tabbed the song in full though it basically consists of verse and
chorus repeated over & over. You will find the song is quite syncopated, and
maybe not all the notes are in the right place. It\'s not 100% correct but it\'s
the best I could do.

Check out my Thin Lizzy\'s \"Whiskey in the jar\" transcription! Don\'t know where
you may find it... I posted it a few weeks ago at Freshtabs but I ain\'t seen it
yet on any tabs site.
