Downtown Money Waster
C. Robinson, R. Robinson

Open G tuning: DGDGBD, played with a slide (duh).

Intro:

Fast, sloppy strumming:D|--/12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-------------------|B|--/12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-------------------|G|--/12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-------------------|D|--/12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-------------------|G|---------------------------------------------------|D|---------------------------------------------------|
Carry on strumming furiously on the 12th fret as the piano does its intro then slide the 12th and then immediately and dramatically down to nowhere in particular:
Repeat 6 times:D|--/12\---------------------------------------------|B|--/12\---------------------------------------------|G|--/12\---------------------------------------------|D|--/12\---------------------------------------------|G|--/12\---------------------------------------------|D|--/12\---------------------------------------------|
Verse Riff:
D|--------------------------------------------------|B|--------------------------------------------------|G|--------------------------------------------------|D|--------------------------------------------------|G|---5/7\5--00-2/3-2/3-0-000------------------------|D|--------------------------------------------------|
Or:
D|--------------------------------------------------|B|--------------------------------------------------|G|---5/7\5--00-2/3-2/3-0-000------------------------|D|--------------------------------------------------|G|--------------------------------------------------|D|--------------------------------------------------|
Or:
D|---5/7\5--00-2/3-2/3-0-000-------------------------|B|---5/7\5--00-2/3-2/3-0-000-------------------------|G|---5/7\5--00-2/3-2/3-0-000-------------------------|D|---5/7\5--00-2/3-2/3-0-000-------------------------|G|---5/7\5--00-2/3-2/3-0-000-------------------------|D|---5/7\5--00-2/3-2/3-0-000-------------------------|
Alternate between these three as you see fit, they're all basically the same thing and aiming for a loose feel anyway. Chorus ("When I'm around" part):
D|---3h5-55--555-------------------------------------|B|---------------------------------------------------|G|---------------------------------------------------|D|---------------------------------------------------|G|---------------------------------------------------|D|---------------------------------------------------|
Again, vary it a bit by playing this phrase anywhere where you can hammer an F to a G. Solo:
D|--/12-12-12-12-12\---/12-12-12-12-12\--------------|B|--------------------------------------/12-12-------|G|--------------------------------------------12-12\-|D|---------------------------------------------------|G|---------------------------------------------------|D|---------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------|B|--/12-12\----/12\---12-12\-12\----12-12\-12-12\----|G|----------10-------------------10------------------|D|---------------------------------------------------|G|---------------------------------------------------|D|---------------------------------------------------|
This one's all in the phrasing, so just about impossible to notate clearly here. Just your own: all the strings at the 10th and 12th frets are in key so just go nuts.
End with:D|--2s3-2s3-0----------------------------------------|B|--2s3-2s3-0----------------------------------------|G|--2s3-2s3-0----------------------------------------|D|--2s3-2s3-0----------------------------------------|G|--2s3-2s3-0----------------------------------------|D|--2s3-2s3-0----------------------------------------|
A very easy song, and one where you don't need to worry about getting it exactly like record since Rich is playing very loose anyway. Enjoy. Legend:
|-10/12-| Slide up from first fret to the next|-12\10-| Slide down from first fret to next|--/12----| Slide up to fret from anywhere|--12\----| Slide down from fret to anywhere|--/12\-| Slide up to and then straight down from fret|--3h5--| Hammer on
