Subject: TAB: Staying Alive - Bee Gees

Posted by:STU_M1CAMPBE@vax1.acs.jmu.edu (MELISSA A CAMPBELL)

Here is the tab to "Stayin' Alive."  The song is in the key of A flat,
but all the Ds are played as natural instead of flattened.  I have put
the chords under the tab charts instead of over the lyrics.  The chord
changes appear to be few and far between; that is just because of the
fast 4/4 tempo.

By the way, could someone please, please, please post the tab to "Don't
Stand So Close to Me" by the Police?

Exceed your disk quo,
Proceed to disco.      :)
