Aerosmith tabs

Three Mile Smile guitar tab

Hey dude, nice page, but I noticed you don't have my favorite song, 
"Three Mile Smile"...so I typed up my transcription and here it is!



						Chris Calabrese
"Three Mile Smile" by Aerosmith
>From _Night in the Ruts_

I have most of the song down, but I haven't heard it for about a year, and I
just dug up a transcription I did from a year ago so here it is.  This song is
a lot of fun to play!

Riff A - play twice

    B/A   B                  E  E  E     B/A    B                  E  E  E

A----0----2--------------2---2--2--2--|---0-----2--------------2---2--2--2--|
E----------------------------0--0--0--|----------------------------0--0--0--|

Then there's the drum break

Riff B - play 6 times

Then play
Riff B four times
Riff C once
Riff D twice

Riff D

E--0--3------3--0---3--------3--(0)--|

Then play
Riff B four times
Riff C once
Riff D once
Riff C once
Riff D once
Riff A twice

Next comes the solo.  I did the rhtyhm part, but I was too lazy to do the
solo, because Joe Perry is a very sloppy player, and especially in this solo.

Solo Rhythm - play 3 times

   D   D   A      E   E  E  E                   D  D  A      E   E  E  E

Then play
Riff D four times

Then after that there's a second solo where he just plays riff D throughout
pretty much of the solo.  It's pretty easy to figure out what he's doing after
this spot, but I haven't heard the song in a while so I can't remember.
