                        THEY NEED A MILLION - Scorpions
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: JackMule
E-mail: PlayingSongs@hotmail.com

Editor Notes: The tempo changes a few times up until Verse 3, so listen to the
              song to get a feel for the pacing. 
              
              In some verses/choruses/solos I've placed (a) reference(s) to 
              what's supposed to be played. You can find whatever I've 
              referenced near the bottom of this page. I did this to declutter 
              the tab and to show you what you actually have to learn, rather 
              than showing you the same sections multiple times.
              
              Use the solo sections to figure out what notes Uli's playing, but
              you'll have to listen to the solos if you want to figure out 
              exactly how he does the vibratos and bends. The same goes with 
              other lead parts.
