Common Rider - Classics Of Love tab

Band: Common Rider
Song: Classics Of Love
Album: Last Wave Rockers (1999)
Tuning: Standart E A D G B E

That's a really great song of Common Rider...
Jesse Michaels sings here fast as hell and the song mainly just need 2 regular
chords for the verse and three powerchords for the chorus.. that's everything!

Chords
e|---7----9----|------------------|
B|---7----9----|------------------|
G|---8----10---|--------9----11---|
D|---9----11---|---9----9----11---|
A|---9----11---|---9----7----9----|
E|---7----9----|---7--------------|

Verse / Prechorus - For the verse we need a classic ska-rhythm...
Ya' know what that means: the muted death notes (x) are played downstroke
and all the other chords are just played upstrokes... that's it!

 |  Verse                 |  Prechorus
e|--x-7--x-7---x-9--x-9---|---7--7--7--7-77--|
B|--x-7--x-7---x-9--x-9---|---7--7--7--7-77--|
G|--x-8--x-8---x-10-x-10--|---8--8--8--8-88--|

Chorus - Just basically these three Powerchords...
Played in this order two times afterwards in the Chorus!

E|--7777777777777----------------------------|

Interlude - The interlude may be a bit tricky cause of the ska-rhythm, but you just need 
some practice with that ska-rhythm and you'll get it!

e|---7--7--7--7x7--|---9---9---9---9-x9------|
B|---7--7--7--7x7--|---9---9---9---9-x9------|
G|---8--8--8--8x8--|---10--10--10--10x10-----|
D|---9--9--9--9x9--|---11--11--11--11x11-----|
A|---9--9--9--9x9--|---11--11--11--11x11-----|
E|---7--7--7--7x7--|---9---9---9---9-x9------|

In the background you can hear a distorted second guitar...
Just hit the 8th fret, bend it and let it fade away, and at the end
you play that softly little solo, so you just play this:
 |                   | at the end
e|-------------------|-----------------------|
B|-------------------|-----------------------|
G|--8^~~~----8^~~~---|---8-10--8-10-10/12~~--|
D|-------------------|-----------------------|
A|-------------------|-----------------------|
E|-------------------|-----------------------|

Outro - Play the chord the first time downstroke and the second time upstroke...
 |       downstroke        upstroke
e|-----------7~----------------7~~-----------|
B|-----------7~----------------7~~-----------|
G|-----------8~----------------8~~-----------|
D|-----------9~----------------9~~-----------|
A|-----------9~----------------9~~-----------|
E|-----------7~----------------7~~-----------|

Order: 12xVerse - 2xChorus - 8xVerse - 2x-Chorus - 4xInterlude - 4xVerse - 4xChorus - Outro

Kay... so the first 4 verses at the beginning are played with an
acoustic guitar - after it you can kick in with the distorted electric guitar.
So at the beginng you play 4 verses with the acoustic and the 8 afterwards with an electirc.
At the second verse you just have to play the 8 verses with electric guitar....
After the interlude you just play the last verses 4 times...
The last chorus is played two times and after it you just softly play
the last chord down- and upstroken and let the sound fade...
