Bad To The Bone Tab

#----------------------------------PLEASE NOTE---------------------------------##This file is the author's own work and represents their interpretation of the ##song. You may only use this file for private study, scholarship, or research. ##------------------------------------------------------------------------------#"Bad to the Bone" by George Thorogood and the DestroyersTabbed by Ryan Bowman (rybow@mindspring.com)This is my first tab, so I guarantee there are some errors in here somewhere,probably in the stuff played on the high e and b strings towards the end of thesong.  I don't have a fuzzy distortion pedal like George does either, so thismight not sound quite right with distortion. Sorry it's so long, but I've almostgot the whole song here.Symbols:    /   slide up   \   slide down   b   bend   ^   vibrato (he usually uses the tremolo arm, a.k.a. "whammi bar")Intro:                        |main|                              |riff|               |~~riff one~~~|e--------------------------------------------------------------------B--------------------------------------------------------------------G--005030---------005030-----005030-----005030-----005030-0--12\-0---D--005030---------005030-----005030-----005030-----005030-0--12\-0---A--------------------------------------------------------------------E--------------------------------------------------------------------  |~riff two~|   |~~~~riff three~~~~|   |~~riff four~~|e---------------------------10-7-------------------------------------B---------7b8------------7b8----8-8\------------7b8^^^---------------G--05030----------05030------------------05030-------------05030-----D--05030----------05030------------------05030-------------05030-----A-------------------------------------------------------------------- E--------------------------------------------------------------------After "She could tell right away, that I was bad to the bone" repeatthe main riff seven times while he says "bad to the bone" over and overagain.  Wait for the verses to go by and repeat it again six more timesafter he says "I'm here to tell 'ya honey... ."  Hold out the last strum,then play riff one, riff two, and riff three.Right after that, play this twice:e----------------------------B----------------------------G--05030---2/3-2/3--2/3-0----D--05030---2/3-2/3--2/3-0----A----------------------------E----------------------------Play the main riff, then this a few times (listen to the song for this):e----------------------7-10-7---B--7/8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8----------G-------------------------------D-------------------------------A-------------------------------E-------------------------------Then this before he goes into the next round of lyrics:  |~~~~~~~~~~~~riff five~~~~~~~~~~~|e-------------------------------------B-------------------------------------G--0-----12\--0-----05030-----05030---D--0-----12\--0-----05030-----05030---A-------------------------------------E-------------------------------------After the lyrics a sax solo kicks in and you just repeat the main riffover and over with the occational slide down from 12.Then the guitarsolo starts:e-----------------------------------------------------------------B--7b8--8--8--8---------------------------------------------------G---------------------------------------05030---2/3^^--0--05030---D-----------------------4b5--5--5--3----05030---2/3^^--0--05030---A-----------------------------------------------------------------E-----------------------------------------------------------------2x:e------------------B------------------G--323230---5030---D--323230---5030---A------------------E------------------3x:e-------------------------B-------------------------G-----------------05030---D----------0-5----05030---A------1-3----------------E--3-3--------------------Then riff four is played two times.Then George makes some weird sounds that I couldn't figure out.Next, this is repeated a lot:e--555555555B--444444444G-----------D-----------A-----------E-----------Then riff five, the main riff six times, riff one, the main riff once,then something like:e--4/5-5-5-5-5-5/---B--3/4-4-4-4-4-4/---G-------------------D-------------------A-------------------E-------------------The riff 3, the main riff, then:      |riff six, repeat several times|e------7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-10-10-10------B--6/8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--10-8-------G--------------------------------------D--------------------------------------A--------------------------------------E--------------------------------------Then the main riff twice.  I was too tired to bother with the ending.  It'sdescending notes, just make something up.
