Blue Oyster Cult - Take Me Away tab

Artist: Blue Oyster Cult
Song:   "Take Me Away"
Album:  "Revolution By Night" - 1983 CBS Records
Words:  Eric Bloom
Music:  Aldo Nova

TRANSCRIPTION BY Alex Plant (alex [at] alexplant [dot] name)

Tuning: Eb Ab Db Gb Db Eb (Half-step down)
Key:    Eb Minor
NOTES:  I was searching for a tab for this for a long time until I
	  finally had the skill and patience to transcribe it. There
	  is a tab for this song, but it's horribly wrong and was
	  made by an a*shole who said, and I quote, "You know, no 
	  one else would make this tab so you guys really shouldn't
	  complain." Well I've made one now so you can XD. Give 'em
	  hell! This tab is almost without a doubt 100% correct, but
	  suggestions are always welcome. I didn't even attempt to
	  illustrate timing, so listen to the song for it. BTW this
	  is my first tab, but unlike the other dick who "tabbed"
	  this song, I put some effort into it and I'd like to think
	  that I know what I'm doing XD.

SOLO

The solo is in Eb minor, the key of the song. If you don't know how
to build scales and such across multiple strings, then below I've
tabbed out Eb minor in the 12th position, then extended on the
high and low E strings in both directions. What I have will get you
by, but if you don't know what I'm talking about then I highly
recommend that you read some lessons on ultimate-guitar.com
concerning music theory and scales; it'll help you a LOT.
