David Bowie - Blue Jean tab

The Chords are pretty Easy, I'm gonna mostly concentrate on the lead.

Starts with chords:

 CCC   GG

The Verse Riff: (make an open D chord and use your
pinky for the '3' on the first string when needed)

e|---3-2--|-3-2-0-2|---3-2--|----3-2-|-3-2-0-2||:----3-2-:||
B|--3-----|--------|--3-----|--3-----|--------||:--3-----:||
G|-2------|--------|-2------|-2------|--------||:-2------:|| (6x)
D|0-------|--------|0-------|0-------|--------||:0-------:|| 
A|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------||:--------:||

First Saxophone fill (in case you're in one of those lame-o
bands without a Saxophone ;))

1st Sax fill:
e|-12-------|
B|---12b--10|
G|----------|
D|----------|
A|----------|
E|----------|

[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/d/david-bowie/58235.html ]
2nd Sax fill:
(slide up to the last note
and hold it as long as you can...
squeeze tight for sustain!)
e|-12-------|----/17---|
B|---12b--10|----------|
G|----------|----------|
D|----------|----------|
A|----------|----------|
E|----------|----------|


Chorus:

(no leads here on the original version,
 but I put some in as the song is kind of
 boring with out them (and if you 
 don't have a sax in your band)  

So I make my F#m and A like this:

F#m    A   
-2-   -X- 
-2-   -2-
-2-   -2-
-4-   -2-
-4-   -0-
-2-   -X-

Use your first finger to make the A chord,
and you're right in position for some fills 
using your A pentanoic MAJOR scale

  F#m                A
||:--------|--------|--------|--------:||
||:--------|--------|--------|--------:||
||:--------|--------|--------|--------:||
||:--------|--------|--------|--------:|| (x4)
||:--------|--------|--------|--------:||
||:--------|--------|--------|--------:||
Sometime I feel like...

 CCC   GG
|--------|
|--------|
|--------|

OK, now just repeat the Verse and Intro from above again,
but before the chorus use the second sax fill...



Now the bridge:
||:--------|-3------:||
||:---3-6-3|---3-6-3:||
||:--------|--------:||
||:-5------|--------:|| (x2)
||:--------|--------:||
||:--------|--------:||

And back to the chorus..., and your done. Almost.

End on:


 CCC   GG CCC   GG E
