Ain't Life Grand
Slash's Snakepit 2000

Intro:
Arp. C 7
(sounds like a typical C blues outro in G 7)

C7
E------------------8---
B------------------8---
G------------------8---
D------------------10--
A----------1-2-3---8---
E--12/3---3------------ REPEAT 2 TIMES, ENDS WITH AN OCTAVE G 7 CHORD 
THEN REPEAT THE WHOLE RIFF
--------------------------
--------------------------
--------------------------
---1---3b5-3b5 3b5-3-1---- THEN ANOTHER G 7 (... Come on...)
-3---3-----------------3--
--------------------------
C F C G
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
-------------------------------------
---1-1-0-----4-4-3-1---1-1-0---------
-3-------3-----------3--------3------
-----------1--------------------3---- REPEAT 2 TIMES THEN START SINGING
 
C G#etc...
End of the summer, down in New Orleans...
I think the whole verse could be like that:
CG#
D#A#
CG#
D#A#
Then: "The reason I'm stayin..." sounds being like this:
G#D#
A#FG
Repeat VERSE RIFF
Then get to the CHORUS: (a very Jimi Hendrix feel)
G# C C# D D# G G# A A# D D# E F D# D C# C (repeat) 
-----------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------
----3-3-4-4-5-5-6-6-----------------5-5-6-6-7-7-8-8-6-6-5-5-4-3--
4-4-----------------3-3-4-4-5-5-6-6------------------------------

SOLO:
The solo rhythm repeats the one used for the verse 
CHORUS n. 2
INTRO RIFF 
("mama grand, papa grand etc...")
OUTRO:
--------------------------
--------------------------
--------------------------
---1---3b5-3b5 3b5-3-1---- THEN C 7 
-3---3-----------------3--
--------------------------
This is not a simple song to play (it means that the writer is a good player)
But try to get the feeling that comes along and... enjoy it!

Song: Ain't Life grand
Album: Ain't life grand
Artis: Slash's Snakepit
Tabbed by: Tomas Martini (limacent@euronet.nl)


I Didn't transcribed the solo, I think groyou's version is pretty 
accurate, and i usually improvise a bit in that part.
You gotta figure the timing out yourself, I don't think that's really
difficult. The Chords are played by guitar 2.
Here ya go.

Intro/outro:
  |Riff A    F#         |
E|--------|---------------------------| Play riff A 3 times, the second
B|--------|---------------------------| time trow in a distorted F# chord
G|--------|-------4-------------------| (guitar 2) for 1 sec. then guitar
D|--------|-----4----3-3-2------------| 2 is silent again.
A|---0-1/2|-5p2------------4---0-1/2--|
E|-2------|-------------------2-------|

Ending 1:
     F# F#
E|---------------------------|---------------------------|---------------------------|
B|---------------------------|---------------------------|---------------------------|
G|-------4---4---------------|---------------------------|---------------------------|
D|-----4---3---2-------------|---------------------------|---------------------------|
A|-5p2-----------5--2--------|---------------------------|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|---------------------------|---------------------------|

  "Come On"

Ending 2:

Tuned down half a tone.
I AM WORKING ON ALL THE ALBUM SO IF SOMEONE GOT RIFF OR CHORDS OF SONG THAT 
WILL HELP ME. Thanks and Slash rules.


As Slash says all time, most of the solos are improvised, and that is why 
they do are so great, they are a real picture of what goes through his
mind at the time, so this is not an accurate  version, it is not a note 
for note transcription, but nearly,so trying this one note for note 
will miss the point.

All guitar players should play as they feel with keeping just the basic idear 
of it.

I am sure Slash would agree with that as on stage he did not play the solos 
note for note from the album.
Good luck and let your feelings express themselves through that.
