AC/DC - It's a Long Way To the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)
Tabbed by Jason Kester 

This is an easy song that nobody can seem to figure out how to play
because it's so far out of tune.  I guess you cant really tune a
bagpipe, so they had to tune to it.  Anyway, tune down a quarter step
(yeah, half a fret...) and then tweak it until it sounds right.

Intro: (Guitar 1)
+--------------------------------------------------------------------
+--------------------------------------------------------------------
+--------------------------------------------------------------------
+---4..4----4-----4..4----4-----4..4----4-----4..4----4--------------
+-0-2..2--X-2---0-2..2--X-2---0-2..2--X-2---0-2..2--X-2--------------
+--------------------------------------------------------------------

Fill (Guitar 2)
+-------------------
+-------------------
+----------------4.......
+---4..4-------2-4.......
+-0-2..2--X-2H4--2.......
+-------------------

After a while, Guitar 2 changes to this rhythm part:



+--------------
+--------------
+--------------
+-4-4..4--2-4--
+-0-2..2--2-2--
+--------------
  p


Fill:

+------7--X-7.. Guitar 1
+------7----7..
+--------------
+-4-4..4--2-4-- Guitar 2
+-0-2..2--2-2--
+--------------


Chorus:

+-------------------  +-------------------------------------------------
+-------------------  +-------------------------------------------------
+-4......2...4..----OR+-----9-------------------------------------------
+-4......2...2..----  +-9-7-9-------------------------------------------
+-2......0...-------  +-9-7-7-------------------------------------------
+-------------------  +-7-5(0)------------------------------------------

Bridge:
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------
+-------9-----------9---------------------------------------------------
+-9-----9-------7---9---9-----------------------------------------------
+-9-----7-------7---7---9-----------------------------------------------
+-7-------------5-------7-----------------------------------------------

Then comes the solo.  The bagpipe part goes:

+----7~~--
+---------
+-7H8-----
+---------
+---------
+---------


That's about it.  It's pretty easy.  The solo is in the 7th position.



The System:

 --2H4--         Hammer on
 --4P2--         Pull off
 --2S4--         Slide
 --2..--         Let Ring
 --2..2-         Let Ring, then hit again
 --2~~--         Vibrato

 --0-0--         Palm Mute
  p p


 --0-0--         Up & Down Picking
  U D

 --0-0-2-0-0-3-0-0-2-0-0-3-0-0-2H3--     Metallica
  p..........................
  D U D U D U D U D U D U D U D

The spacing of the notes kind of reflects the timing of the song, but not
very well.
