Janes Addiction - Strays tab


Transcribed by: Andrew Blewden

This is my first tab, so here goes :)

If anyone has any questions, do not hesitate to email me on asblewden@gmail.com.  I am 
sure the song is accurate, I tabbed it just by listening through over and over, though 
might be a few issues with a bit of the solo, say if you think there is (it might be ok :P)

I decided to tab this because I realised there wasn't a version of it on the site yet, 
of course itís a great song.  Donít be harsh, it took a few hours to do, and remember 
are all my own ideas, there are no other tabs yet to get tips off :D

This is tabbed for the lead guitar, I think there might be another, but this is the main 
 I put the lyrics in so itís easier to follow.

Here it is, enjoy:

Note: For the bit above just play it by ear because itís easy to pick up. Basically pick the 6th fret on the B string and hit the 8th and 9th frets from time to time. He much hits the 8th and 9th frets randomly.
