Renegade Tab

Hey all. This is a FREAKING AMAZING song that I've never seen tabbed.
So here it is!

Tuning: Standard
Guitars: 2
Song by: Styx
Tab by: Mark Shannelly



Intro is all vocals:

Oh mama I'm in fear for my life from the long arm of the law
Law man has put an end to my running and I'm so far from my home
Oh Mamma, I can hear you a crying you're so scared and all alone
Hangman is coming down from the gallows and I don't have very long

(AAAAAHHH)

Chorus (both guitars):                                                       2 Times

   Oh moma Ive been…

Guitar 2 does this distorted fill after each line of the verse:

Oh Mama, I've been years on the lam and had a high price on my head

e--8-5---------------
b------7-6-----------
g-----------5-5h7p5--
d--------------------
a--------------------

Lawman said 'Get him dead or alive' and it's for sure he'll see me dead

e--8-5-----------------
b------7-6-------------
g----------5-5h7-------
d----------------7p5---
a----------------------
e----------------------

Dear Mama I can hear you cryin', you're so scared and all alone

e--8-5-----------------
b------7-6-------------
g----------5-5h7-------
d----------------7p5---

e----------------------

Hangman is comin' down from the gallows and I don't have very long

d-------------------7)--

Chorus Repeat
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/styx/renegade_tab.html ]
Solo: This is the most insane solo I've ever heard, so it's
hard to play and tab, this isn't 100% but close.

Guitar 1 does this in the background:

Solo backing:

G-----3--5--3----5p3--------3--5----------------------------|
D-----3--5--3----5p3--------3--5----------------------------|
A---------------------5-------------------------------------|
E--3--------------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 2: Distorted.

This first part is played very fast.

e--9b11-9p7p6------5---------7p5------------------------------------------------------
b--------------7p5--7-----5h7--------7p5----------------------------------------------
g---------------------6h4--------5h7---------7p5--------------------------------------
d----------------------------------------5h7--------7p5-53-----3h5-------------------
a------------------------------------------------5h7--------5p3-----3h5---------------
e------------------------------------------------------------------------3h5p3h5p3--0-

It slows down a bit:

e------------3h5-5/------------------------------------------
b--5p3---------------5p3--------------------------------------
g-------2/--------------------------------3h5-3p1)----5b7----
d--------------------------------------3h5-------------------- Palm mute the stuff between the brackets
a----------------------------------(3h5-----------------------
e------------------------------3/----------------------------

e------------------------5h7-9p7--------------------------------
b------6-3-3/6-----9-5b7---------9p7----------------------------
g--5h7---------7h9--------------------7b9-----------------------
d-----------------------------------------7h9------7h9----------
a----------------------------------------------9-9-----9-9-11---
e-------------------------------------------------------------0-



This part is palm muted too

d--------------
a--------------
e--0-0-3-5-7-3-

Now its get insanely fast again. I think this riff is one of the most
incredible riffs I've ever heard.

e--3/15-15h16h17p15---------   Repeats over and over every fourth bar, hit the 13th fret on the G string
b--------------------15-----
g------------------------13-

Slows down a tad here:

e-------------------------------13-15h17-19b22-17-15-
b-----------------------17b20------------------------
g-----------------15h17------------------------------
d-----------15h17------------------------------------
a--13-15h17------------------------------------------
e----------------------------------------------------

Last bit

e--19b21-19b21-19b21-19p17--------------------15h17p15-19b21-19b21-19b21--
b--------------------------19p17--------15h17-----------------------------
g---------------------------------15h17-----------------------------------

And then we go back to the verse riff with no singing.

Then there is singing with just drums

Then the chorus

And ad lib soloing at the end until this part 

e--3/15-15h16h17p15---------   Repeats over and over every fourth bar, hit the 13th fret on the G string
b--------------------15-----
g------------------------13-

And it fades out.



That's all for one of the best two guitar songs I've ever heard.
Enjoy!
