Billy Idol Dancing with myself
From the album: dunno? I got it from the greatest hits
Tabbed by Liam
Email: guitar_rocker_47@hotmail.com
Tuning: half a step down

Note: this is not the generation X version –the two versions differ slightly, this is
Idol’s version with Steve Stevens on lead guitar (not Derwood from Generation X) if you
the Generation X version im sure I could give it a go for you. To reiterate the song’s 
duration should be 4.50 minutes or there abouts cos that is Billy Idol’s version.

Tab is accurate although there are a few flaws with how its written. Even though it says on the top that the tuning is half step down, it is tabbed out in standard, can be played either way though. Also for the solo you should start on the A string not the Low E. I still give it a 5 star because its accurate, just a few flaws with how its written.
