"Ready for Love"
by Mick Ralphs
from the album Bad Company

I?ve been on a Bad Company kick lately, so I decided to tab up a few of
the songs that I know.  Let me know if you have any questions or
anything to add.  I have a few other BC songs as well, so if you?re
interested, just email me.

Notation
**=let note ring!
^^=staccato
/=slide

Opening Riff - Asus4, A

  [Asus4]            [A]
E------------------------------------------|
B-----------3**-------2**------------------|
G---------2------2--------2-------2--------|
D-------2----------2--------2---2---2------|
A-0**-------------------------0-------0----|
E------------------------------------------|

  [Asus4]        [A]
E-------------0-----------------------------|
B-----------3---3-2-------------------------|
G---------2---------2-------------2---------|
D-------2-------------------2---2---2-------|
A-0**-------------------------0-------0-----|
E-------------------------------------------|

As far as I can tell, the verse just follows a simple arpeggio
chord progression (A,C,D,C,B,A,G,F).  I don't know the actual
pattern, but you can try just about anything.  Here's a simple
example.  Let the bass notes ring throughout.

[A]Wanderin down..[C]rocky road
E------------------------------------|
B---------2-----------------5--------|
G-------2---2-------------5---5------|
D-----2-------2---------5-------5----|
A-0**-----------0---3**-----------3--|
E------------------------------------|

[D]Wonderin where my [C]life is [B]leading
E------------------------------------------|
B---------7h8p7----------------------------|
G-------7-------7-----------5----------4---|
D-----7----------7--------5----------4-----|
A-5**-----------------3**--------2**-------|
E------------------------------------------|

 [A]Rolling on    [G]to the bitter  [F]end
E-----------------------------------------------------1---|
B---------2-------------------------------------------1---|
G-------2---2--------------4----------------2---------2---|
D-----2-------2----------5---5------------3---3-------3---|
A-0**-----------0------5-------5--------3-------3-----3---|
E------------------3**-----------3---1**----------1---1---|

(Actually, that B chord may be a figment of my imagination,
but I like it in there!)

Pre-Chorus

  [D]Ooohhhhhh   Oooh
 (I want you to  stay)
E---------------------------------------------------|
B--7**------------7^^--------7**------------7^^-----|
G--7**------------7^^--------7**------------7^^-----|
D--7**------------7^^--------7**------------7^^-----|
A--5**------------5^^--------5**------------5^^-----|
E---------------------------------------------------|
My notation here is kinda strange.  You should really smack
that D chord the first time and let it ring, then cut it off
the second time (staccato??)  If you listen to the record
it'll be pretty self explanitory)
Play this 3 times, then, for the last time, play.....

[C]todayyyyy    [D]ayyyyyyyy - you get the idea
E-------------------------|
B--5-------------7--------|
G--5-------------7--------|
D--5-------------7--------|
A--3-------------5--------|
E-------------------------|

Then on to the chorus, which is just G,A,C,D

 [G]Rea[A]dy for love       [G][A]   Oh baby I'm
E---------------------------------------------------|
B---------------------------------------------------|
G--4//6-----6-------6--------4//6-----6-------6-----|
D--5//7-----7-------7--------5//7-----7-------7-----|
A--5//7--7--7----7--7--------5//7--7--7----7--7-----|
E--3//5--5--5----5--5--------3//5--5--5----5--5-----|

[C]Rea[D]dy for love        [C][D]
E---------------------------------------------------|
B--5//7-----7-------7--------5//7-----7-------7-----|
G--5//7-----7-------7--------5//7-----7-------7-----|
D--5//7--7--7----7--7--------5//7--7--7----7--7-----|
A--3//5--5--5----5--5--------3//5--5--5----5--5-----|
E---------------------------------------------------|

At the end of the chorus is a decending riff, like the verse.
Try something like this:
  [C]     [B]    [A]     [G]       [F]        [G]
E-----------------------------------1----------3----|
B-----------------------------------1----------3----|
G-------0------0------0-------0-----2----------4----|
D------0------0------0-------0------3----------5----|
A--3**----2**----0**----------------3----------5----|
E------------------------3**--------1----------3----|

That's pretty much the song.  I haven't compared it too closely
to the album, so I'm sure there are mistakes.  But it sounds
good to me so it should at least provide a good start.
There's also plenty of room to improvise, especially during the
verses.  Have fun and I hope someone makes use of this!
Please let me know if you have anything better
