4500 Times
Status Quo
Hello 1973


My mate Ant asked me how you play the 
weird guitar parts following my version 
of the chords - just worked it out.  
This isn't how Rick plays it but its the 
closest you can get without a retune.




h - hammer on 
p - pull off 
b - bend string 
r - release bend
/ - slide up
\ - slide down
v or ~ - vibrato 
t - right hand tap
x - play 'note' with heavy damping
