:Sigh: Jerry the Race Car Driver

Discussion in 'Tablature and Notation [BG]' started by Tbirdbassist, Mar 27, 2006.

  1. Anyone have a full version of the song for a 4 string. I've gotten the main riff by ear and 6 string tab references.


    But the chorus, pre chorus thingy and fills I'm lost. Anyone?

    How did you get that so early???

    Didn't the March issue have Walk this Way? :confused:
  10. I have a subscription and it was in my mail box.

    They listed it on the cover but another song was actually inside the magazine. They apologized for their error.

    ^I still don't understand how you got the JUNE issue of BGM in APRIL. Maybe I'm thinking of a different magazine, because I'm pretty sure the tab for Walk This Way was inside it.
  12. Well, I don't know if the uploading of .gp3 files is allowed here. I'll attach the file with .txt extension in case of following the rules. All you have to do is to change the extension to '.gp3' ;)
    (jerry.txt -> jerry.gp3)

  13. Well, I think I've gotten it by ear, in standard tuning. I'll post it in a new thread later.

    All of those tabs are totally wrong, go to ultimate-guitar.com and get the powertab from the songbook.

    You can't play it on a 4 string unless you have 25 frets.
  16. the tab that "tenorbass" posted was a correct 4-string version. notice that it is not in standard tuning.

  17. Actually you can, you just won't be able to play one note which is barely audible in the first place...
