                        Orphans Of Babylon - Be Bop Deluxe
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: axe victim
Email: see my profile

First track on the 'Modern Music' album.  
Mostly acoustic guitars, with some electric parts, I've 
tabbed some basic chords here. Listen to the song to get 
the strumming pattern just right, but its fairly conventional.


Tuning:EADGBe

|x mute note
|G/F# chord/bass note


Intro:

D|---------0------0---0-------|-0-----------2---------2---2---2---|
A|----------------------------|-x-----------0---------0---0---0---|

Repeat a few times then,
