This is a fairly easy one. If you haven't bought the CD yet, then do so!
It's a classic...

It's rumoured that John Fogerty once said:
"A good rock'n'roll album should have a great title, at least one hit song
and one great guitar riff"

Ain't nobody feels like goin' home Play refrain here then main riff 4 times again Song finishes off with a solo around the first 3 frets based on the riffs from the verses....you should figure that out... "Let freedom ring" "Oh Rock of ages do not crumble love is breathing still" "Oh Lady Moonshine down, a little people magic if you will" This tab was created with the help of an Amiga computer and the sampling software Audiomaster IV, under the menu effects/duration/pitch the frequency and the pitch can be doubled, thus enabling the program to play back the sample at half the speed but with the original pitch. -- raggen@hem1.passagen.se, Roger Olofsson -- raggen@hem1.passagen.se, Roger Olofsson
