Rock N Roll Damnation guitar tab

Rock and Roll Damnation - AC/DC

Ok this is one of my favourite AC/DC tracks. It's easy
and fun to play.
The intro arrpeggios are played over the chords A and D.

      A            D
E---------------------------|
B----------8------------7---|
B--------9------------7-----|  2 times
D------7------------7-------|
A---0------------5----------|
E---------------------------|


The main riff is rock and roll itself. Perhaps one of the
most used rock rythyms going - it still sounds fresh on this
album  - even in 1994 !!

       A
E---------------------------------------|
B------3--3-po-2-----3-3-po-2-----------|
G------2--2----2-----2-2----2-----------|
D------4 -4-po-2-----4-4-po-2-----------|
A---0--0--0----0--0--0-0----0--3-4-0----|
E---------------------------------------|

po = pull off
Try experimenting with this rythym until you get the
right feel. IT IS FUN !!!

lyrics

verse:
y' say that that you play too loud
well baby that's tough
y'say that you got too much
can't get enough
tell you that you look a fool
baby I'm a fool for you
say that you're my disease
well, shake your stuff

chorus:
       G5      D/F#     A5
It's a Rock and Roll damnation

       G5       D/F##     A5
       ma's own whipping boy

       G5       D/F#     A5
       rock and roll damnation
       D5
       take a chance
       E5
       while you still got a choice

verse2:
you say that you want respect
honey grow up
everything that you've done for me
well thanks a lot
c'mon, get up off your bended knees
y'can , set your mind at ease
my temperature's running hot
and I've been waiting all night for a bite of what
you've got,and

Chorus:

Intro section over the lyrics:

just a boy with a toy  ( ??? )
come on and take your choice
cos you're way out of reach
living in your sin you gotta practise what you preach

Chorus:

        G5      D/F#     A5
It's a Rock and Roll damnation

        G5       D/F##     A5
        ma's own whipping boy

        G5       D/F#     A5
        rock and roll damnation

        G5  ( not D this time )
        take a chance

        D5
        while you still got a choice


Back to the main riff for the solo which I can't get to
sound right - but I know that just as the vocals come
back in the solo is playing something like:

E-----------17------------
B---------------------17--
G---16b-16b---16b-16b-----   repeatedly.
D-------------------------
A-------------------------
E-------------------------

try messing around with this. It's easier to stumble across
by playing than writing it down !!

Finally, the chords G and D/F# are the standard AC/DC stuff

    G      D/F#     note no major or minor tonalities

E---x------x--
B---3------3--
G---0------2--
D---0------0--
A---x------0--
E---3------2--

I hope you enjoy it !!!
