Subject: TAB: Rory Gallagher - In your town

Hi Rory Fans,
since I use to take a look at the netnews, there's never been a Rory
Gallagher TAB. So I tried to work out one myself. It's my first
TAB-posting, so feel free to make suggestions.
This TAB contains the intro and the main riffs. I think, it's senseless to
tab the whole song exactly, because Rory usually does a lot of tricking and
spontanous improvisation, especially during this song. Listen to the
recordings, e.g. on Deuce and Live in Europe.
So that's the way you should play this song. Take this material as basic
and variate it. If requested, I could try to work out the solo, too.
So have fun...


Rory uses a Fender Tele tuned to Open-E: E H E G# H E (low to high) and
a capo on the third fret. I noted the the frets up from the capo to mark
the open played strings.
Be careful with the picking. Rory holds the plectrum between his thumb
and the 1st finger and addidionally picks the upper strings with his 2nd
and 3rd finger.
The slide he mostly puts on the 3rd finger.

The Intro:

The main riff goes something like this:
!------------------------!-------------------------!!----3--------3--3-------!-----3--------3--3-------!!----3--------3--3-------!-----3--------3--3-------!!----------x-----------0-!-----------x-----------0-!!------------------------!-------------------------!!-0-----0-----0-----0----!--0-----0-----0-----0----!
