Subject: TAB: Rock 'n' Roll Star  by Oasis

From Fred Lidskog  

Rock n' Roll Star, written by Noel Gallagher, performed by Oasis.
Song can be found on the album "Definitely Maybe".

Chords used:

B	(x24442)
C#m	(x46654)
A	(x02220)
G#m	(466444)
E	(022100)
F#	(244322)

There is a riff played along with the "B" chord in the intro and verses
that I can't, for the life of me, play so it sounds EXACTLY like the
record, but below is an attempt that sounds close. The tab below is played
in ALL the verses in the song, as well as during the "B" chord in the
chorus. Here goes:

b=bend (3b4 means bend the string at the 3rd fret to make the note that
the string would make if it was played at the 4th fret without bending.)

Verse 1 ------- [NOTE: all "B"'s below played with "main riff"] B I live my life in the city B There's no easy way out C#m A B The day's moving just too fast for me B Need some time in the sunshee-ine B Gotta slow it right down C#m A B The day's moving just too fast for me Pre-chorus ---------- G#m E I live my life for the stars that shine B And people say it's just a waste of time G#m E Then they said I should feed my head B But that to me was just a day in bed G#m E I'll take my car and drive real far B To where they're not concerned about the way we are A Cos in my mind my dreams are real F# Are you concerned about the way I feel
Chorus------ A E B (w/ main riff) Toniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight I'm a rock n' roll stare--5---5--------------0-----B--5---5--------------0-----G--6---6--------------1-----D--7---7-----------2--2-----A--7---7-----------2--2-----E--5---5---3b4-----0--0-----
Bridge------A E ?You're not down with who I am look at you now you're all in my hands e------------0--------------------------3----- B------------0--------------------------3----- G------------1--------------------------1-----
D------------2-------------------------------- A------------2-------------------------------- E----3---2---0-------------------------------- B (w/main riff) [NOTE: I have no idea whatTonight! that "?" chord is, or if it's correct!]
[SOLO over chords B C#m A B] [VERSE 1 repeat] [Pre-chorus repeat] [Chorus repeat] Here, song goes to an "A", then starts alternating between "F#" and "E", then Liam starts singing "It's just rock and roll" and the alternation between "F# and "E" starts getting faster, and that's the end of the song. Questions, comments, corrections, requests to swede@email.unc.edu By the way, if anybody has a take on that verse riff in this song that sounds better than the one I've got, please send it to me.
