                             Gonna Live Forever - by Bob Catley
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Andy (yalaki)
Email: yalaki@hotmail.cm

Tuning: Standard

Official Bob Catley website: http://www.bobcatley.com/

This is a song from the Magnum frontman's 2003 solo album "When Empires Burn".
It hasn't got the most inspiring guitar part to it (except the solos which are pretty darn good!)
but it's still a really nice song to play.

Enjoy!

Any wrong ntoes, questions, comments, requests etc: yalaki@hotmail.com

Verse 1:

"Don't want excuses, they're all around..."

I have done a pretty complete tab below, but I have missed out some nuances.
In particular extra strokes on the lower string - add these to give your playing
a little more rhythm. Listen carefully to the CD to get a feel for it.
