Wild Wild Life by Talking Heads
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I grabbed John's ([email protected]) post from Nevada, listened to
the disc, made corrections, and here is the result. This is how a bud of mine
and I play it (two guitars). I included a rhythm and lead for each part,
and the lyrics at the bottom (they may have errors). There really isn't a
rhythm guitar on the album, so the rhythm part is sort of a combination of the
bass and drums. There is timing below the tab (1 + 2 + etc), I hope it helps.
If there are brackets around tab: [-2-3-], it means to repeat what's in the
brackets. I hope somebody else likes this tune; thanks again to John for his
original post.
