    Hey any one have a tab of You're so bad by Linda Ronstadt? Or the sheet music? I am trying to learn this one with the guys in the garage and could use all the help I can get. Thanks D.

    Never heard of that one... it's not a mash-up of "You're No Good" and "Hurts So Bad", is it?

    Quite a complex tune (if you mean Your No Good)
    The main riff is A# to D#, with all kinds of "weird" key changes, shifts for pre chorus and build ups.

    I kinda like this live version from the Midnight Special (except for Jose Feliciano's stupid intro of Linda)

    Here you go:



    Should be pretty close to being on-point.





    I should note, Bb minor seems an odd key to me for a guitar song. I have two theories: 1. The band is tuned a half step down which would make the guitars play in the B minor position -or- 2. the song was written on piano and Linda likes to sing in Bb minor. There is a solitary, lonely old eighth-note low E in the song that would probably sound better if it was an Eb - which tuning down a half step would remedy - not that anyone would notice. Either way my bass is tuned A440 and that's how I transcribed the song. Good luck!

    Nice Tab mac!!

    That little guitar breakdown is just so weird that is cool when it goes that F#. Nice!
    I will work on this and the Van Halen.
    I thought the same thing, seemed an odd key for guitar song, but must be the keys or they downtuned half step.
