Television - Little Johnny Jewel tab

"Little Johnny Jewel"
by Television
from Little Johnny Jewel 7" and 12" single and Marquee Moon (Deluxe Edition)

This song is a lengthy jam without distinct separation from the
 guitar parts between Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd, so what
 I've figured out will be under guitars 1 and 2.

Main riff (Played only by the bass during intro lead all the way up to the first chorus break, then 2nd guitar plays it throughout.)e--------------------------------------------------------------|B--------------------------------------------------------------|G--------------------------------------------------------------|D--------------------------------------------------------------|A--------------------------------------------------------------|E--------------------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 1 plays more small fills, just listen or improv because they are all similar to the previous.

CHORUS VERSE w/ MAIN RIFF END That's it. Because of this songs length and repetitive, loose, jam-like structure, feel free to play along to the song and improvise any of the bit I left out like the entire solo. Please feel free to leave comments, corrections, requests, and suggestions. Cheers! -Bennyshambles78-
