I don’t owe you anything TAB

Hello!

As requested earlier on this list, here's the complete guitar tab for "I
don't owe you anything". I hope I got it all right cuz I didn't check with
the recording, only with my guitar.

The song is in E, but you play it in actual D with your guitar tuned up 2
half steps (or capo up 2 frets). The verse riff is classic Marr stuff with
lots of open strings and slides and those typical maj7 chords. Try to let
single notes ring as long as possible.

The barre chords (Cmaj7, Dmaj7, A) must be played accentuated with right and
left hand damping (using upstrokes). Listen to the album version to get the timing right.

Notes in parentheses mean that I don't really hear them on the record but
play them anyway, esp when there's no bass playing along.

As for the song order, you've got to find that out by yourself. :)))

Comments and corrections are welcome.

Enjoy!
Genghiz
