>                    The Pretenders
                          (1983)

(This whole song should be played on a Rickenbacker 12-string or per 
"The Isle of View" on an acoustic 12-string! -- LM)

> The intro lick, that also continues through most of the song,
> goes like this:
>
>
> e|---------2-3-|-0-------2-3-|
> b|-3-----------|---3---------|
> G|---0---------|-----2-------|
> D|-----0-------|-------------|
> A|-------------|-------------|
> E|-------------|-------------|

Try this instead -- let the bass notes ring.  Note that the timing is
triplets:

    t t t t t t t t t t t t
  e|--------2-3-0-------2-3-|
4 b|3-------------3---------|
- G|--0-------------0-------|
4 D|----0-------------------|
  A|------------3-----0-----|
  E|3-----3-----------------|

> Then right before the first verse:
> 
> e|-------------|
> b|-3p1-0-------|
> G|-------2-0---|
> D|-----------4-|
> A|-------------|
> E|-------------|
