Schools Out by: Alice Cooper

This song isn’t hard to play but is very cool given that it is in three 

different keys; the chorus sections are of different length and end with

different chords, and there is a bridge section leading into another bridge 

section. These guys threw out the formula and created a masterpiece, here.
Tab for non-riff chords:

Well we got no choice

Bridge 1:  A A  A7 A  F A  All bends = whole step to A
If a second guitarist is available have him play the bent note chords while guitar

Well we got no class

We can't even think of a word that rhymes

Chorus 2:
G        Bb  C    F#/G
School's out for summer

School's been blown to pieces


Bridge 2b: With Riff “2” 8 times 
Again, if you have a second guitarist, have him play the chords above the

RIFF 2:  E-|-----------------------|
         B-|--8----7----5----7-----|

C  sustain
No more pencils No more books
D  sustain
No more teachers’ dirty looks
C  sustain
Out for summer out till fall
D  sustain
We might not go back at all

Chorus 3:
G        Bb  C    F#/G
School's out for  ever
G        Bb  C   F#/G
School's out for summer

Yes its good but it is better if you errase the "F#/G" (guittar playing F# and bass play G) maybee it fits WITH A BASS but if you are alone guittar, its better to take barre F and slide to G.

the F#/G sounds should be replaced with an Eb (or D#)
