Subject: TAB: "Merecenary" (Go-Go's)

A brilliant song. Fun to play, but you have to be careful, because
the main "riff" sounds bad if you don't play it just right. Also,
Belinda Carlisle has a very high range, so you might not be able
to hit some of the notes if you're singing, but tuning down has
sounded very bad when I tried it. But do what you want. Notes:

 1) Wow, this song was a bitch to figure out. And I thought the
     main acoustic part (guitar 1) was tough. I can barely hear
     the electric lead (guitar 2) throughout the chorus, so a lot
     of this is speculation on my part. It should sound decent
     the way I've tabbed it out here. The blank spots on guitar 2
     are probably where I couldn't figure out what the guitar was
     doing. I can't vouch for the accuracy of guitar 2. I tried
     my best, I swear to you.
 2) Obvious from the transcription, but guitar 1 is a 12-string
     acoustic, guitar 2 is a clean (flanged? chorused?) electric
     guitar, guitar 3 is a distorted electric. Guitar 3 only
     really comes in during the prechorus and chorus. During the
     chorus it muffles itself a lot for a percussive sound. BTW,
     if you have to ditch one guitar, kill guitar 3. It adds
     color, but who has 3 guitars live?
 3) Watch out for the changes. The intro is based on an eight-bar
     pattern, but the verse is a six-bar pattern. Confusing, but
     an interesting series of changes.
 4) No solo, per se. Just all 3 guitars blasting away at chords
     for 8 bars. Gotta love that.


"Mercenary" (Jane Wiedlin, Kathy Valentine, Charlotte Caffey)
Recorded by the Go-Go's
From the album _Talk_Show_ (which REALLY needs to be rereleased
 on CD. Until then, you can find this on _Greatest_Hits_ or, in 
 slightly altered form (acoustic only) on the terrific _Return_To_
 _The_Valley_Of_The_Go-Go's_)

Notation:
s - sixteenth note
e - eighth note
q - quarter note
h - half note
w - whole note
. - play note for one and a half times the value before it (just like a dot in 
     standard notation)
^ - ties two note lengths together
NOTE LENGTHS IN CAPITAL LETTERS MEAN REST FOR THAT VALUE OF TIME!
/ - slide up
\ - slide down
h - hammer-on
p - pull-off
x - muffle strings with fretting hand


3/4 time

[8-bar drum fill]
