Lynyrd Skynyrd - Freebird Full Solo
Submitted By: shredfan
EMail: shredfan@yahoo.com

Tuning: Standard (E A D G B E)


This is one hell of a long solo,if you think it's going to be too much
to learn then I suggest you pick up a few licks from the tab and play them 
in any order you like. Most people wouldn't even notice. 
If you really want to play it like the record, then it's all here for you. 
Also, I didn't try too hard on the timing of it, but it is simple to get right.

4-6.1.1999 V2.0

I added the solo. Actually I copied it from
a book. But everything before the solo is
tabbed by me!! Some parts were tabbed differently 
in the book and also the third guitar was tabbed.
I'm not gonna add it here (cause I'm lazy). If you
find any mistakes please, please let me know!

Okey! This is were the solo starts! Amazaing solo really
even I cannot play it yet! I have to pratice more. This
was originally transcripted by Dave Whitehill. I had to
re-arrange it a bit. There are lots of repeating parts.
If u think you can arranged it better let me know. Of
course u don't have to play it just like this! Just improvise!!!!

[solo stripped by archivist]

Okay!! There it is...well it is as bit messy and all the
measurents aren't right...but still there it is! I don't
even have my Lynyrd Skynyrd Collection home (I have no
idea where have I losted it) but I trust the book If u
have a comment just mail me, but always(!) tell me where
did u get this tab. I don't know much guitar sites where
I can send my tabs. Requests are always welcome...but just
don't ask for Van Halen's eruption or something like that

Lynyrd Skynyrd Free bird extended version SOLO
Words and music by: Allen Collins and Ronnie Van Zant
By: Frederic Briere

h - hammer on
p - pull off
b - bend string up
r - release bend
/ - slide up
 - slide down
~ - vibrato
t - right hand tap
x - play 'note' with heavy damping
Here is the solo... It's mostly correct, but in repetitive sequences I 
didn't count, so just try to make it sound like the song. It seems harder 
than it is to play so good luck!


Repeat twice (4:55)

Author/Artist: Lynyrd Skynyrd
Title: Freebird Solo

This is one hell of a long solo,if you think it's going to be too much
to learn then I suggest you pick up a few licks from the tab and play them 
in any order you like. Most people wouldn't even notice. 
If you really want to play it like the record, then it's all here for you. 
Also, I didn't try too hard on the timing of it, but it is simple to get right.
