                              TUSH - Girlschool
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Written by: Gibbons/Hill/Beard
Album: "Screaming Blue Murder"  (1982, Solid Gold Records)

Tabbed by: Anne Drury  (zerofret)
Email: zerofret_ad@hotmail.com
Date: November 30, 2005

Notes:
-this tab is of Girlschool's 2nd recording of "Tush", the version with
 Kim McAuliffe on vocals -- the song appeared on "Screaming
 Blue Murder" in North America (but not in the UK)
-key of G - guitar solos are mostly in G pentatonic minor
-bar lines do indicate timing
-I'm not convinced I have the main guitar part for the verses tabbed
 entirely correctly - I checked against 3 different video versions of
 the song (the promo and 2 concert versions) and couldn't decide
 definitively if I had it right or not - not sure if those single notes
 at the beginning of each measure should be a single note or maybe (same
 as the rhythm guitar part), a 5th chord - use your own judgment :)


INTRO:

Play Guitar 1 and Guitar 2 parts together

Gtr 1 - play 2x
