=============================================================================
                       Rolling in the Deep - Adele
=============================================================================

It's all whole notes in a very simple tab.
The timing is just 4/4 or 4/8.
However, in the intro and verses, NINE notes of the same pitch are played
instead of the EIGHT which we all expect from a 4/4 or 4/8 piece. 

Honestly, listen carefully
to the track and you'll see what I mean.

ESTIMATED TEMPO: 108 (Moderato/Moderate)

LEGEND:

'|' - END of a BAR
'W' - WHOLE NOTE
'H' - HALF NOTE

'~' - VIBRATO/HOLD FOR A WHILE

'1_-' - Allows room for slides, hammers, pull-offs etc.
        or notes on fret 10 and above.

'(1)' - Optional/Alternative notes.

(INTRO/PART OF VERSE contains NO BASS)

The tab is flawless, the only comment I have is that in 'See how I leave...' enters the 2nd guitar. The bass enters in 'The scars...'. Thanks a lot, I'll be playing this this sunday with my band.

@waltervt

Thanks for the great comment and correction.
Thing is, with this song, the bass is hard to pick up when the bass drum is in sync with it so it's a bit hard to tell at times when there's bass guitar or not.

Cheers again and good luck on Sunday!

not flawless, but damned close. 4th measure of the chorus sounds to me like it should be the same as the 8th, Ab to Bb not a full measure of Ab. Possible that we're listening to different recordings of the same song too.
