Aerosmith tabs

Magic Touch guitar tab

Magic Touch(Tyler/Perry/Vallance)
from "Permanent Vacation"(1987)

I don't know exactly which chords are played in the intro but these:
 
C5 B5  A(2x)

work for me. Let me know if you know what's really played.


Neither am I exactly sure about the main riff but it sounds a lot like 
this:

   rhythm figure 1(guitar 1)-
   E------------------------------------------------------------|
   B------------------------------------------------------------|
   G-----4p2-----0-2------4p2-----0-2------5-4-----0-5--5p4-----|
   D-----4p2-----0-2------4p2-----0-2------5-4-----0-5--5p4-----|
   A--5-------5-------5--------5-------5--------5------------5--|
   E------------------------------------------------------------|

   E---------------------|
   B----------0--0-------|
   G--4p2-----0--0-------|
   D--4p2----------------|
   A-------5-------------|
   E---------------------|

Repeat that when necessary. 

Before the verse the second guitar plays(what sounds like) this:

   guitar 2(w/distortion)-
   E----------------------------------------------------12------|
   B--10------/---12------/--10----12----13-----15------15b-----|
   G--12b----r/---15b----r/--12b-r-15b-r-15b-r--17b--r----------|
   D------------------------------------------------------------|
   A------------------------------------------------------------|
   E------------------------------------------------------------|

The chords for the rest of the song sound as follows:

(Note:What's played on the album is not straight chords but variations 
of them. The chords listed below should give you something to vary.)

   
    F
    I tried to get a message to ya

                  G              E   
    but you walked the other way

                 Am    F
    I need your magic touch

     C         G
    don't you know

     F        Em         C      G
    I got a habit and I can't let go

     Am      F
    Feel the fire

    C         G
    burnin' slow

    F
    You better get it while it's hot now babe cause I can't

    Em
    let go 


I don't know the guitar solo(please send it to me if you do), but the bridge goes something like this:

    C
    You never know what you got 
 
    F                    G
    til they take it away

    C                     F
    I'm comin' ready or not

                        G
    gonna get you someday 

Some of the solo at the end is just a variation of what the second 
guitar plays in the intro. Let me know if you figure out the rest.


That should get you through most of the song. Hopefully someday they'll
release a PV guitar tab book so that we won't have to guess at the lead.
Until then, have fun with this and write me with any comments, 
questions, corrections or additions at meunier.1@osu.edu
