Here's the classic "The Mexican", by Babe Ruth. It not only has great guitar work, the 
line is what keeps this tune jumping!! (As usual!!)

G   --------------------------------------------------------|
D   --------------------------------------------------------|
A   --2-2--22-22--------------------------------------------|

E   ----5----5--------------|


Back to a verse (same as above)


Yeah, we all know the guitar/keyboard solo is great, but it's nothing without the bass 
You must be able to pull the A string open to create that quadruple note sound, just keep 
once you have it down, it sounds fantastic! Here it is:

G   --------------------------------------------|
D   --------------------------------------------|
A   --7---7----7777----0507----7----7777--050---|
E   ----7---7----------------7---7--------------|

7 times then:

G   ---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D   --7---7---7777--5------------------------9---9--9999--97--7--7777----|
A   ----7---7----------7---7----7777---050------9--9--------7--7---------|
E   ---------------------7----7------------------------------------------|

G   -------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D   --79---9---9999----------------------------------------------------------|
A   -----9---9-------95----5---5555---050--7---7--7777--050--7--7--7777-050--|
E   ---------------------5---5---------------7---7-------------7--7----------|

Then, 8 times

G   ------------------------------|
D   ------55--444---7--5----------|
A   --77--------------------------|
E   ------------------------------|

Followed by:

G   -------------------------------------------------------------------|
D   --9---9---9999--97--7---7777---79---9--9999------------------------|
A   ----9---9----------7--7-----------9---9------95-0-5-0--5555--050---|
E   -------------------------------------------------------------------|

G   -------------------------------------------------|
D   -------------------------------------------------|
A   --7--7---7777---050---7--7---7777----05----------|
E   ----7--7----------------7--7---------------------|

And finish like it started 'til fade-out

G   ---------------------------|
D   ---------------------------|
A   -2--2---2222--2---2--2222--|
E   ---2--2---------2--2-------|
