              Takin Care of Business - Bachman Turner Overdrive
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: MichaelMurrayGuitar.com
Email:

Tuning: Standard

I have tabbed out the three main solos. There is some lead guitar during the
verses and chorus at the end but those solos can be improvised (try the 
c-minor pentatonic at the 8th fret) or removed entirely.

 Riff A Beginning and Verse (Sometimes they mix Riff B into the verse)

You did a really good job on this tab although i dont think it makes a difference whether you bend the string up or down. Keep up the great work though.
