Gerdundula
Status Quo
Dog Of Two Head 1973


Let me guess.  You saw them last night and wanna learn this song.
Well as that is the most popular case, I will tab this as the modern line up play it live.
It is extremely similar to the '73 version however.

Francis: Standard Tuned Telecaster capo 5th fret
Rick:    Standard Tuned Telecaster
Rhino:   Standard Tuned Tanglewood Telecaster capo 5th fret
Andy:    Standard Tuned Washburn Semi

I'll do a bit of everyone's part so that you get the idea...

Francis:E|---------------------|B|---3---3---3---3---3-|G|---------------------|D|-0---0---0---0---0---|and so on...A|---------------------|E|---------------------|

All of this is played under the Gm chords, well at least for Rick and Andrew as Frame and Rhino do the solo. The Band play their F's like this:
Francis and Rhino:E|-0-|B|-1-|G|-0-|D|-2-|A|-3-|E|---|
Rick:E|-1-|B|-1-|G|-2-|D|-3-|A|-3-|E|-1-|
Andy:E|-1-|B|-1-|G|-2-|D|-3-|A|-3-|E|---|
The band play their D#s like this:
Francis and Rhino:E|---|B|-3-|G|-3-|D|-3-|A|---|E|---|
Rick:E|---|B|-8-|G|-8-|D|-8-|A|-6-|E|---|
Andy:E|-6-|B|-8-|G|-8-|D|-8-|A|-6-|E|---|
Their D chords are these shapes shifted down one semitone.
Francis and Rhino:E|---|B|-2-|G|-2-|D|-2-|A|---|E|---|
Rick:E|---|B|-7-|G|-7-|D|-7-|A|-5-|E|---|
Andy:
E|-5-|B|-7-|G|-7-|D|-7-|A|-5-|E|---|
Francis also has a lick that is repeated quite a lot.It goes like this...E|------------------|B|------------------|G|-2p1p0------------|D|-------3-0--------|A|-----------0------|E|------------------|
Gm F Gm Love it seems I just can't find F Gm Love it seems I just can't find D# D Seems that I'm the one love Gm The one love left behind Gm F Gm I've searched it just won't come my way F Gm I've searched it just won't come my way D# D It's love that I want now Gm So what more can I say SOLO Gm F Gm Women seem to pass me by F Gm Women seem to pass me by D# D If I could find the reason Gm I'd know the answer why Gm F Gm Love it seems I just can't find F Gm Love it seems I just can't find D# D Seems that I'm the one love Gm The one love left behind Before I forget they finish the song like this:
