Guns N Roses - Rocket Queen tab

Tune all string in a bemol tone, I mean, all strings must be tunned 1/2 tune lower than natural tone (guns always play this way).

I am very sorry ?cause this is my first tab and it?s 3am here in Caracas, but this tab will lead you in the main street of this song. From here you have to practice and figure out the complements that I can?t trancript to this sheet... Sorry I don?t know too much about making tabs.

Chorus Here I am and you're a Rocket Queen I might be a little young but Honey I ain't naive Here I am and you're a Rocket Queen, oh yeah I might be too much but honey you're a bit obscene Riff 2 I see you standin', standin' on your own It's such a lonely place for you, for you to be If you need a shoulder or if you need a friend I'll be here standing until the bitter end Riff 2 No one needs the sorrow, no one needs the pain I hate to see you walking out there, out in the rain So don't chastise me or think I, I mean you harm Of those that take you, leave you strung out much too far Baby yeah Lead guitar Solo.. End Riff Dont Ever leave me, say you?ll always be there I ever wanted was for you to know that I?m there.. This is a quite simple song that you?ll get it with some practice and listening the cd in order to get the rythm and stuff... Any suggestions.. franciscojavier99@hotmail.com
