Chickenfoot - Avenida Revolution tab

Chickenfoot - "Avenida Revolution"
From Self-Titled Debut Album
Eb Tuning 
tabbed by jjhand


This might be the hardest Chickenfoot song, due to all the different 
endings to the main riff and the very difficult solo. I can't play it
all, I had to slow it down and put down my best guess on the notes! 
Please rate and comment.
