OK, here's a decent tab of Rock and Roll Band. The solo's kinda sketchy,
because there's two guitars, and I only bothered with one. I think
by now you know my bend notation, but if I haven't explained it, it's 
like this: 14b16 means bend 14 up to the note that 16 would make, i.e.
a full step. 16b14 means bend the note before picking and then bring it
down to pitch (down a full step in this case). The / means slide up, \ 
means slide down. So here's Rock and Roll Band...

The verse lick goes like this:
1-3. 4. 5-6.--------------------------|-------|----------|-----------|----------------------------|-------|----------|-----------|-------------------2--------|-------|----------|-----------|----2--------2-----2--------|-------|----------|-----------|----2--------------0--0-3-4-|-0-----|-0-5--0-6-|-0h3p0-----|----0--0-3-4---3-4----------|---3-4-|----------|-------3-4-|--
The 1-3 is the ending of the lick for times 1-3, 4. for the 4th, etc. After the sixth time it goes
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------9-7--5--4--5-5----------------------------------------------9-8--6--4--6-6----2--------2-----4--4-------4-----7-7-7-----------------------2--------------4--4-----4---6-4-7-7-7-----------------------0--0-3-4---3-4-2--2-5/6---------5-5-5-etc-----------------
The chorus chords are
----------------|-------------------------------------|---------------------|-------------------------------------|-------6--6--2--2--4-|-----------------9-------------------|-------6--6--2--2--4-|-2-4--4-5-6-7-9--9--9-11-9---------2-|-------4--4--0--0--2-|-2-4--4-5-6-7-9--7--7--7-7-----2-4---|---------------------|-0-2--2-3-4-5-7--0---------3/4-------|-----
Then back to the verse and chorus, etc. The solo goes something like this, but there's two guitars and I only did one.

The rest of the song is pretty much just verse/chorus stuff. Have fun, Dave Shapiro dshapiro@ucsd.edu
