From: "Paul S. R. Edwards" 
Subject: TAB: "Break On Through" Organ Solo (The Doors)


                                             THE ORGAN SOLO
                                                TO
                                             "BREAK ON THROUGH"
                                    words and music by The Doors


The guitarist in my old band worked this out with me one jam session
when we were trying to cover it.  It is one of the easier solos of Ray
Manzarek to transfer to guitar because it is played on the regular
organ.  Just add a bit of reverberation and chorus.  It also sounds ok
on acoustic guitars.

kjohnson08, x577xx is the same thing as xx0232. They are both a D. If you were on acoustic, the open D would be better, on electric like Krieger, your D chord is better. nice tab

Krieger is actually playing the D chord in the tab. Missing a few notes here and their, but overall great tab.
