Title:Dancing Queen
Album:Arrival

Ok first off this song is a bit long but a lot of the parts repeat themselves
so it shouldn't be that hard to remember,also make sure you have the sound of this
song which pretty much means minimal treble and good mid and low punch and just
practice up on your strumming because the rhythm in this song is a bit odd and
will require a bit of listening to the song to figure out when to play. I tried
to make sure that this was as accurate as possible as I have yet to find a tab
for this. I've played this over and over and it sounds pretty much 95% accurate,
their may be some parts where the bassist will bounce off the fret next to the
one played but I really couldn't pick that up. Everything is done in order to
make it easier to play and remember. If you have any questions or corrections
drop me a line at gtsrmike@yahoo.com

Whew,that was a wee bit long wasn't it? Sorry if the timing isn't exact,it's
very much a "listen to the song and figure it out for yourself" type of song.
Well hope you like the tab!

The original key signature of this song is in A. Looks like you tabbed it out in E. Why?
