Edgar Winter Group - Free Ride tab

Free Ride
Edgar Winter Group
Transcribed by:Jason F.

Well this is only about my 3rd tab ever, and the first one with a solo, but I looked up
song and there were only two tabs, both lacking a few key parts.  Anyway I spent like an
listening to the song and figuring most of it out and this is what I got.  Sorry i was 
lazy to do the outro solo.

Sound Settings/Info
In general I'd stick to your treble pickup for most of the song except when you're
because that's your choice.  Most of the song is clean, or with very little distortion, but
the lead riffs and solos id put your gain to maybe 6 or 7 depending on your amp.  Again 
all your call but thats just what I do.

/=slide up
\=slide down
x=muted string
r=return bend

0:02--->Intro Riff

F#m might not be the exact chord but it sounds right. Chords are played over words as such D A F#m A The mountain is high, the valley is low D A F#m A And you're confused, on which to go D A F#m A So I come here, to give you a hand D A F#m A And lead you into, the promised land...so __________________________________________ You can pretty much use any strumming pattern you like for the chords, or just play them where they occur, whatever. One I like to use is

Played over words like so: F#F# GG A Come on and take a free ride (free ride) F#F# GG A Come on continue by my side F#F# GG D D (I suggest playing a D power chord here) Come on and take a free ride 0:45--->Post Chorus Riffs (Rhythm guitar plays Intro chords under this)
1:02 Verse 2 "All over the country..." Repeat chords for 1st verse, match w/ corresponding words. 1:18 Chorus 2 Repeat Chords as well but for post chorus Riffs do only up to the first two bends and time hitting and holding the 2nd fret on the G string (A). Also here a second guitar the bend riff as soon as the 1st guitar has hit the first bend. 1:37 Solo:Well I'll be honest this is my 1st time tabbing a solo, but I'll do my best since no one else tabbed it. I broke it up into sectionsso it isnt too confusing to read. Most of the solo switches between A major and minor pentatonic, with a second guitar in at about 1:54 that solos as well. Verse chords are played under the solo. I'm a little iffy about the part played under the "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah Yeah" because its hard hear, but i gave it my best shot with that.
(Yeah, Yeah...)e|---------------------5------5-----------------------------------|B|-----------------5-8---8b10(hold)-8-5---------------------------|G|-------------4-6----------------------7-5-7-7b9-7b9-7b9r-5~-----|D|-------2/4-7------------------------------------------------7---|A|-2/4-7----------------------------------------------------------|E|----------------------------------------------------------------|
1:54-->Dual Lead Part-->Okay Here I'll tab out each guitar at a time. It was a good each guitar track was in either the left or right speaker so i can mute one and listen to other track. Lucky Me eh, guitar 1 will be the left speaker and guitar 2 will be the I will tab all of guitar 1 first then all of guitar 2, but they probably wont exactly up the way the notes are, but tab has no rhythm notation so that wouldnt matter anyway.

I'm going to tell you right now that is definitely not 100% correct but its decently and sounds almost the same. 2:05-2:19-->No guitar, could be one pick-scratching but its probably keyboard. 2:20 Outro Riffs-I'm going to write out the lead part, for the outro the rhythm is just intro chords. There are also 2 guitars playing the riffs but they are pretty much the same thing, just one comes in less than a second later.

Outro Solo....I am not going to write. Its not too difficult to figure out, very to the first solo with 2 guitars, but this time they are playing identical riffs. Well anyway thats free ride. Hope you enjoyed.
