Round And Round
status Quo


Intro:
   8x
E||--------------||

D||-11-11-11-9---||
A||*9--9--9--9--*||
E||--------------||


The B5-B6 pattern has been used throughout the song (except for the E5
as I stated above). I will only write the intro out in this rythm.

E||---------|--------|--------|--------|
B||*--------|--------|--------|--------|
G||---------|--------|--------|--------|
D||-4-4-6-4-|4-4-6-4-|4-4-6-4-|4-4-6-4-|
A||*2-2-2-2-|2-2-2-2-|2-2-2-2-|2-2-2-2-|
E||---------|--------|--------|--------|


E||--------|--------|--------|---------||
B||--------|--------|--------|--------*||
G||--------|--------|--------|---------||
D||--------|--------|--------|---------||
A||4-4-6-4-|4-4-6-4-|4-4-6-4-|4-4-6-4-*||
E||2-2-2-2-|2-2-2-2-|2-2-2-2-|2-2-2-2--||

Verse:
The B5 and C#5 are not played as B5-B6, C#5-C#6 but just as B5 and C#5.


Chorus:

The chordchange E-A in the chorus is played like this:

E||--------|--------||
B||--------|--------||
G||--------|--------|| Play the 5-6 pattern again in the 
D||9-9-9---|--------|| second bar but skip the first eightnote.
A||7-7-7-7-|--7-9-7-||
E||------5-|--5-5-5-||
            

The first two bars with the D-chord is played like this:

E||--------|--------||
B||--------|--------||
G||--------|--------|| Let the chord ring in the second bar.
D||7---7---|--------||
A||5---5---|--------||
E||--------|--------||


The last five bars of the chorus are played like this:

E|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------||
B|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------||
G|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------||
D|9-9-9-7-|--------|----7-7-|7-7-7-7-|7-7-7---||
A|7-7-7-5-|--------|----5-5-|5-5-5-5-|5-5-5---||
E|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------||
        Let it ring!

To keep things understandable I will give you the chordsequence 
of the chorus as an overview:

|A5  |A5  |A5  |A5  |E5  |A5  |A5  |A5  |A5  |
|A5  |A5  |A5  |A5  |E5  |D5  |D5  |
|A5  |A5  |A5  |A5  |E5  |D5  |D5  |D5  |D5  |

Break:

It was very hard to unravel the break. It's not hard to play though, but
I'm not sure about it. I will give you two solutions for the guitar that 
clearly beats the chords:

E|------------|---------|----|----|--------|--------|----|----|
B|12-12-12-10-|12-------|----|----|8-8-8-5-|8-------|----|----|
G|11-11-11-11-|11-------|----|----|7-7-7-7-|7-------|----|----|
D|9--9--9--9--|9--------|----|----|5-5-5-5-|5-------|----|----|
A|------------|---------|----|----|--------|--------|----|----|
E|------------|---------|----|----|--------|--------|----|----|


E|--------|--------|----|----|
B|5-5-5-3-|5-------|----|----|
G|4-4-4-4-|4-------|----|----|
D|2-2-2-2-|2-------|----|----|
A|--------|--------|----|----|
E|--------|--------|----|----|


But there's always the chance of hearing more than there's happening.
So I give you this alternative (maybe they are played both, can you tell?)

E|--------|---|---|---|--------|---|---|---|--------|---|---|---|
B|--------|---|---|---|--------|---|---|---|--------|---|---|---|
G|--------|---|---|---|--------|---|---|---|--------|---|---|---|
D|--------|---|---|---|--------|---|---|---|--------|---|---|---|
A|9-9-9-9-|9--|---|---|5-5-5-5-|5--|---|---|2-2-2-2-|2--|---|---|
E|7-7-7-7-|7--|---|---|3-3-3-3-|3--|---|---|0-0-0-0-|0--|---|---|

The rest is played in 5-6 pattern:
|B5  |B5  |B5  |B5  |F#5 |F#5 |F#5 |F#5 | 2x

The other guitar is playing this:

E||--------------||
B||*12-12-12-12-*||
G||-11-11-11-10--||
D||-9--9--9--9---|| 12x
A||*------------*||
E||--------------||

In bar 12 there's starting a little solo:

E|7-7-7-7-|7-7-7---|7-7---7-|7---7-7-|--------|
B|7-7-7-7-|7-7-7---|7-7---7-|7---7-7-|7-7-7\--|
G|--------|------9-|----9---|--9-----|9-9-9\--|
D|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|
A|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|

                                         d  u  d !


Intro solo:

The intro-solo is played unisono with the keyboards. I play it on one
string to keep the sound constant. You can play it in one position with
pull-offs but then you can hear the crossing of the strings. This one
is repeatedly played in the outro.

                        2x
