Rock This Town Tab

   
Another Complex Tablature, but worth it for the outcome at the end,
if you get that far with out givin' up

D (riff #1)
e------------------------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------------------------------------|
G------------------------------------------------------------------|
D------7---7---9---7---7---7---9---7---7---7---9---7---7---7---9---|
A------5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---|
E------------------------------------------------------------------|


Over the A chord Setzer plays different variations of the same lick...
it goes something like this...

A (riff#2)
E-----5---5---5-------5---5---5---|
B-----5---7---5-------5---7---5---|
G-----6---6---5h--6---------------|
D---------------------------------|
A---------------------------------|
E---------------------------------|

This is the basic idea...he plays it a little differently each time he hits
the A chord.


The next section of the song has a cool progression from D9 to G to E7 it
looks like this...

    D9                     G               E7
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/stray_cats/rock_this_town_tab_ver_2.html ]
E---4 / 5---5---4---5------3---3---3-------0---0---0---0---|
B---4 / 5---5---4---5------3---3---3-------0---0---0---0---|
G---4 / 5---5---4---5------4---4---4-------7---7---7---7---|
D------------------------------------------6---6---6---6---|
A------------------------------------------7---7---7---7---|
E----------------------------------------------------------|


This next riff is played in between the verses, it's only played on the D
and A strings...

(riff # 3)

E-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-------------------------------------------------------------------|
D-----------4---4---5---5---6---6---7---7---6---6---5---5---4---4---|
A---5---5-----------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|

The final cool Setzer lick is the one that everyone knows...
he plays it in a couple spots during

the song...you'll know it when you hear it....

 (riff # 4)
