Ok this is one of my favourite AC/DC tracks. It's easy
And fun to play.
The intro arrpeggios are played over the chords A and D.
A D
E---------------------------|
B----------8------------7---|
B--------9------------7-----| 2 times
D------7------------7-------|
A---0------------5----------|
E---------------------------|
The main riff is rock and roll itself. Perhaps one of the
Most used rock rythyms going - it still sounds fresh on this
Album - even in 1994 !!
A
E---------------------------------------|
B------3--3-po-2-----3-3-po-2-----------|
G------2--2----2-----2-2----2-----------|
D------4 -4-po-2-----4-4-po-2-----------|
A---0--0--0----0--0--0-0----0--3-4-0----|
E---------------------------------------|
Po = pull off
Try experimenting with this rythym until you get the
Right feel. IT IS FUN !!!
Lyrics
Verse:
Y' say that that you play too loud
Well baby that's tough
Y'say that you got too much
Can't get enough
Tell you that you look a fool
Baby I'm a fool for you
Say that you're my disease
Well, shake your stuff
Chorus:
G5 D/F# A5
It's a Rock and Roll damnation
G5 D/F## A5
Ma's own whipping boy
G5 D/F# A5
Rock and roll damnation
D5
Take a chance
E5
While you still got a choice
Verse2:
You say that you want respect
Honey grow up
Everything that you've done for me
Well thanks a lot
C'mon, get up off your bended knees
Y'can , set your mind at ease
My temperature's running hot
And I've been waiting all night for a bite of what
You've got,and
Chorus:
Intro section over the lyrics:
Just a boy with a toy ( ??? )
Come on and take your choice
Cos you're way out of reach
Living in your sin you gotta practise what you preach
Chorus:
G5 D/F# A5
It's a Rock and Roll damnation
G5 D/F## A5
Ma's own whipping boy
G5 D/F# A5
Rock and roll damnation
G5 ( not D this time )
Take a chance
D5
While you still got a choice
Back to the main riff for the solo which I can't get to
Sound right - but I know that just as the vocals come
Back in the solo is playing something like:
E-----------17------------
B---------------------17--
G---16b-16b---16b-16b----- repeatedly.
D-------------------------
A-------------------------
E-------------------------
Try messing around with this. It's easier to stumble across
By playing than writing it down !!
Finally, the chords G and D/F# are the standard AC/DC stuff
G D/F# note no major or minor tonalities
E---x------x--
B---3------3--
G---0------2--
D---0------0--
A---x------0--
E---3------2--
I hope you enjoy it !!!
Rock and Rooooolllllllllllllllllllll !!!
