Subject: TAB: Richie Sambora - 'The Answer'

Hi everybody,

I haven't tabbed anything in awhile, so I thought
I might try to get started again with this one.
This version is how I try to play this song while
fingerpicking.  It is by no means gospel, but I 
think it sounds pretty good.  I think there are
actually 2 or more guitars playing, or possibly
a 12-string on this one... This is as close as I
can get with one person playing.  Hope you like it.

                                                    Strum the last chord
                                                    slowly, and a distorted
                                                    B5 chord is played 
                                                    under it as everything
                                                    fades out.

That should be everything.  This has taken too
long as is, so I'm not going to include the words,
and I'm also not going to put in the rest of the 
chords over the top of the bars.  If anyone
else is feeling adventurous enough to do it, go
right ahead.  Enjoy this one.
