Guns N Roses - Rocket Queen tab

Tune all string in a bemol tone, I mean, all strings must be tunned 1/2 tune lower than natural tone (guns always play this way).

I am very sorry ?cause this is my first tab and it?s 3am here in Caracas, but this tab will lead you in the main street of this song. From here you have to practice and figure out the complements that I can?t trancript to this sheet... Sorry I don?t know too much about making tabs.

Intro
Riff 1
Main riff

     F#m                          A                               Em
If I say I don't need anyone I can say these things to you 'cause
                                F#m
I can turn on anyone just like I've turned on you
           B                                          B C#m
I've got a tongue like a razor, a sweet switchblade knife

And I can do you favors but then you'll do whatever I like

Chorus
A   G#m F#m                          Em
Here I   am and you're a Rocket Queen
        A                     B        Em     F#m
I might be a little young but Honey I ain't naive
      F#m                          Em  
Here I am and you're a Rocket Queen, oh yeah
         A               B             Em         F#m  
I might be too much but honey you're a bit obscene

Riff 1
 
Main riff

I've seen everything imaginable pass before these eyes
I've had everything that's tangible, honey you'd be suprised
I'm a sexual innuendo in this burned out paradise
If you turn me on to anything you better turn me on tonight

Chorus

Here I am and you're a Rocket Queen
I might be a little young but Honey I ain't naive
Here I am and you're a Rocket Queen, oh yeah
I might be too much but honey you're a bit obscene

Lead Guitar Slide solo..

Chorus

Here I am and you're a Rocket Queen
I might be a little young but Honey I ain't naive
Here I am and you're a Rocket Queen, oh yeah
I might be too much but honey you're a bit obscene

Riff 2

I see you standin', standin' on your own
It's such a lonely place for you, for you to be
If you need a shoulder or if you need a friend
I'll be here standing until the bitter end

Riff 2
No one needs the sorrow, no one needs the pain
I hate to see you walking out there, out in the rain
So don't chastise me or think I, I mean you harm
Of those that take you, leave you strung out much too far
Baby yeah

Lead guitar Solo..

End Riff
Dont Ever leave me, say you?ll always be there
I ever wanted was for you to know that I?m there..

This is a quite simple song that you?ll get it with some practice and listening the cd in order to get the rythm and stuff...

Any suggestions.. franciscojavier99@hotmail.com
