Tuning: EADGBe

| \ slide down
| s slur - very rapid slide, sounds like one note
| h hammer-on
| p pull-off
| ~ vibrato or sustain
| x Mute note
|(3) optional note
| * pinch harmonic ( hit string with both pick and thumb 'til it squeals )
|PM palm mute



Classic from the Eliminator album.


Many guitar parts, one of which is slide, difficult to play with just
one guitar in standard tuning. I will add more of the end solo later.

Here's a solo I tabbed from a live performance so you can play it with a
Guitar in standard tuning, no slide. It's very similar to the recorded
version, I think most of the info you need is in there somewhere.

Lyrics:


Clean shirt, new shoes
And I don't know where I am going to.
Silk suit, black tie,
I don't need a reason why.
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

Gold watch, diamond ring,
I ain't missin' not a single thing.
Cuff-links, stick pin
When I step out I'm gonna do you in.
They come a runnin' just as fast as they can
'cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

Top coat, Top hat,
And I don't worry cause my wallet's fat.
Black shades, white gloves,
Lookin' sharp, lookin' for love.
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.
