Pardon Me

Title track, pretty sweet and not too difficult. I may not have all the parts exactly 
right, but I think they're close. Have fun with it! Any corrections or comments please let 
me know.

Repeat main riff once.

G-----------------|   Turned you on
D-7---7---7--7~---|   So pardon me...
A-7---7---7--7~---|
E-5---5---5--5~---|   <-There's some scratchy feedback before the chorus,
                      but I just ride the A5.

Chorus (No real obvious riffs, just ride the chords):

E5 G5 A5 repeats through chorus

Won't you pardon me
Just let it set you free baby if you don't mind let it take you on a ride
Won't you pardon me

Verse:

(Strum an E5 in the background)

The sound can open your soul
Might make you feel a bit stoned
Yeah

Chorus:

E5 G5 A5

Won't you pardon me
Just let it set you free baby if you don't mind let it take you on a ride
Won't you pardon me
Just let it set you free baby if you don't mind let it take you on a ride
Won't you pardon me

This time instead of ending on the A5, play the A5 then shift up and end on a B5.

Solo:
I haven't tabbed out every single note because he repeats some of the same licks
several times, but it should all be pretty close to correct. Just use your ear and
you'll find the timing.

  Slow bend                  These bends repeat several times.
E-12-------------------------12-----12-----------|
B-15b~-(whammy bar nonsense)----15b----15b-------|
G------------------------------------------------|
D------------------------------------------------|
A------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------|

  These repeat a lot too.

D------------------------------------------------|
