Whitesnake - Here I Go Again tab

Here I Go Again (1987 version) by Whitesnake

Tabbed by Peter Gleeson, August 2011

I couldn't believe there wasn't a nice comprehensive tab on here that did justice to 
this song. There was a fantastic tab for the solo, which I used here and take no credit for 
working out, but other than that, not much else.

I've included lyrics (the ^ shows where the line begins relative to the guitar part) and 
times (when the line begins) for reference. I haven't tabbed out the synth parts, but 
there is stuff on youtube that is probably more relevant to synth players.

If anyone reckons they can improve this, feel free to steal as much or as little of this 
tab as you like. Long live rock 'n' roll!

The opening minute and 14 seconds or so is played on a synthesiser. The guitar part 
begins after the line:

"WALK ALONG THE LONELY STREET OF DREAMS!!" then, (at 1:15) ...

SOLO - there is a really good tab for this by a user on here called hepzibahbaptist, all 
credit for the solo tab goes to them. I have included it here for convenience, and 
claim no responsibility for tabbing it out. It starts at 2:58.
