			Drive -REM
			~~~~~
From: "Andrew N. Westmeyer" 

    What's going down?  The tab for this song was in a recent Guitar
World(Feb '93).  The intro riff goes like this:

-----1------1------1---1-----
--------3------3-----------2-
---2-----------------0-------
0---------0------0-------2---
-----------------------------
-----------------------------

This is done three times total, and then a similie for the fourth time. 
For the chord part, it goes:

Hey kids...
Dm

Nobody...
G

And so on.  The next chord part is something like:

(I forget the lyrics)
F
Am
Em (for a measure and a half)
G (for the half measure)

The electric guitar part consists of D and C barre chords (ie, x5777x
and x3555x).  Hope this helps.

The riff the fourth time through goes like this:

------1------1----------------
---------3----------3---3---3-
----2-----------2---0h2p0---0-
-0---------0------0-------2---
------------------------------
------------------------------

h means hammer-on and p means pull-off.  This part was rather tricky to
learn.  If I ever remember to bring the magazine to the clusters, I'll
post the rest of the song.  In the mean time, I also remember this (the
electric part):

-5-------------
----8--6-------
----------7----
---------------
---------------
---------------

Then a C barre chord.  G string:--5h7---, then another C barre chord. 
Then the electric part above, only just the first three notes, then a D
barre chord.  Next, B string: --6---, then the D again.  This is basicly
the entire electric guitar part.

Verse:
  Chords are;  Dm Dm  G  G  Dm Dm  G  G
Chorus:
  Chords are;  Fm Em  G  G  Em Em  G  G


****From: jdell@nefertiti.mit.edu (John Ellithorpe)
I actually got the riff from Guitar World(?) maybe a month ago or more.  It's
mostly just picking the Dm chord:

Riff 1						Riff 2
||----1---1---1---1------			||----1---1--------------
||-----3---3---------3--- x3, I think, then	||-----3---3---3-3-3-----
||--------------0--------			||-------------0h2-0-----
||--0---0---0------0-----			||--0---0---0--------3---
||-----------------------			||-----------------------
||-----------------------			||-----------------------

Then it goes into the verse, I don't have the lyrics but this is basically it:

	Dm  G  Riff 1  Riff 2 (x4)

Then it goes into,

	F  Am  G  G

Then it has 

	Em Em Riff 1  Riff 2

Also, Bucks electric guitar comes in with,

||--5------------------5-------------------
||-----8--6-----5/6-------8--6-------------
||-----------7------7-----------7--5/7--7--
||-----------------------------------------
