Chickenfoot - "Avenida Revolution"
From Self-Titled Debut Album
Eb Tuning
tabbed by jjhand


This might be the hardest Chickenfoot song, due to all the different
endings to the main riff and the very difficult solo. I can't play it
all, I had to slow it down and put down my best guess on the notes!
Please rate and comment.


Crazy Intro - Move up the neck with tapping. Its similar to this:

great tab. one mistake with the intro. thats sweep picking. same notes, just 3-string arpeggiated sweeps.

poisonousmetal wrote on July 27 2012, 08:06 am

ehhh no, the intro isn't sweeps or tapping. He's taking the pick and dragging it across the strings since about the 7fret. Since it's his signature Chrome Dome pick it sounds like that. The left hand is muffling the strings while the right does it. Watch a live video of it, you'll see what I mean.
