"Back In Black"
by AC/DC
from the 1980 album BACK IN BLACK


Opening riff (played behind verses as well):

---------------------|-------3-0------------|
---------------------|-----------3-0--------|
------7-7-7----------|---------------2^F^p0-|
--2---7-7-7--7-7-7---|-X-X-X----------------|

--0----------5-5-5---|-X-X-X----------------|

---------------------|----------------------|

--2---5-5-5--7-7-7---|--2---2---2---2-------|
--0----------5-5-5---|----4---5---6---7\----|


The Chorus:
----------------|-----|--3-----------|------|--3--|-------|
----------------|-----|--3--3--------|------|--3--|-3-3-3-|
--2-----4--2--4-|--%--|--0--2--2---2-|--%---|--0--|-2-2-2-|

That later riff:
(play each part a couple of times - listen to the tape!)
First half (4 times?)
--------------------------------|
--------------------------------|
--------------------------------|
--------------------------------|
-----5-4-2--4------2---2---2----|
--0------------4~----5---6---7\-|

Second half (2 times?)
--------------------------------|
--------------------------------|
--------------------------------|
-----5-4-2--4------2---2---2----|
--0------------4~----5---6---7\-|
--------------------------------|
--------------------------------|

That's all I know from memory - I'm sorry I don't have the solos down, but
I'm just not a big fan. Anyway, let me know if you found the tab useful, and
don't say Harvard students don't do cool things on Saturday nights!!!! ;-)
