David Bowie - Blue Jean tab

The Chords are pretty Easy, I'm gonna mostly concentrate on the lead.

Starts with chords:

CCC GG|--------||--------||--------||--------||--------||--------|
The Verse Riff: (make an open D chord and use your pinky for the '3' on the first string when needed)
e|---3-2--|-3-2-0-2|---3-2--|----3-2-|-3-2-0-2||:----3-2-:||B|--3-----|--------|--3-----|--3-----|--------||:--3-----:||G|-2------|--------|-2------|-2------|--------||:-2------:|| (6x)D|0-------|--------|0-------|0-------|--------||:0-------:|| A|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------||:--------:||E|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------||:--------:||1.Blue Jean, I just met a girl named blue jean...2.

First Saxophone fill (in case you're in one of those lame-o bands without a Saxophone ;))
1st Sax fill:e|-12-------|B|---12b--10|G|----------|D|----------|A|----------|E|----------|
2nd Sax fill:(slide up to the last noteand hold it as long as you can...squeeze tight for sustain!)e|-12-------|----/17---|B|---12b--10|----------|G|----------|----------|D|----------|----------|A|----------|----------|E|----------|----------|
Chorus: (no leads here on the original version, but I put some in as the song is kind of boring with out them (and if you don't have a sax in your band) So I make my F#m and A like this:
F#m A -2- -X- -2- -2--2- -2--4- -2--4- -0--2- -X-
Use your first finger to make the A chord, and you're right in position for some fills using your A pentanoic MAJOR scale
F#m A||:--------|--------|--------|--------:||||:--------|--------|--------|--------:||||:--------|--------|--------|--------:||||:--------|--------|--------|--------:|| (x4)||:--------|--------|--------|--------:||||:--------|--------|--------|--------:||Sometime I feel like...
