Subject: TAB:"I Danced" by "Violent Femmes"

        I have understood the chord progression of this song for quite some
time but I didn't feel that I had enough material to post. Then over the
winter break I figured out something that sounds like Brian Ritchie's
wonderfully elastic guitar solo. In other words, I'm posting most of the
guitar parts of this song. If you have a part that I've neglected to post,
or if you have comments, questions or corrections, e-mail me at
meunier.1@osu.edu

        Repeat that riff once more before the lyrics come in. Then, for the
verse, repeat the riff without making the percussive sounds. At least I
think that's the only distinction between the introduction and the verse but
the bass is so prominent that it's hard to tell. If you know of another
distinction, e-mail me at the aforementioned address and let me in on it.
Here's my best attempt at the guitar solo:
