                AC/DC "Rock and Roll Damnation"
                from Powerage album
                by Adrian Mayes, European Space Agency, Darmstadt, Germany
                amayes@esoc.bitnet


        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 !!!

       Adrian Mayes
