Subject: TAB: queen of new orleans by Jon Bon Jovi

JON BON JOVI-Queen of New Orleans

Tabbed by Cameron McNeill: rmcn@eisa.net.au

I haven't seen this song tabbed yet, so I decided to do it.
I don't know if it's popular in the U.S, but they play it on the radio
all the time here in Australia.
I play most of the chords as power chords, but it sounds fine if you
play open chords as well...it's up to you.

Standard tuning
*=step on your wah-wah if you've got one

Intro/Main riff/Verse:
       *         *
------------------------------------|
------------------------------------|
------7p6-------7p6-----------------|
-9-9-------7-7------2-2-5---5---5---|
-9-9-------7-7------2-2-5---5---5---|
-7-7-------5-5------0-0-3-0-3-0-3-0-|

Pre Chorus:
              :you can do a bit of a slide here if you want.
------------------------------|
------------------------------|
------------------------------|
-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|
-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|
-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|

Chorus:

D   A                    B                G
Oh, oh, shala-lala I was dancing with the queen of New Orleans
D   A                    B              G
Oh, oh, shala-lala I was dancing in the streets of New Orleans
D   A              B                 G
Oh, oh, shala-lala nothing's what it seems in New Orleans
D   A          C
Oh, oh, it was almost like a dream

Solo: I think it has a backwards effect like R.E.M's "what's the frequency,
Kenneth?",
and so it's pretty hard to work out.

Here's what you play over the solo anyway:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
----------------5-5-5-5-5-5-5-----------------5-5-5-5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7-7-7-|
-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--5-5-5-5-5-5-5--8-8-8-8-8-8-8--5-5-5-5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7-7-7-|
-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--3-3-3-3-3-3-3--8-8-8-8-8-8-8--3-3-3-3-3-3-3--5-5-5-5-5-5-|
-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-----------------6-6-6-6-6-6-6-----------------------------|

Last chorus: The last chorus of this song is interesting...
there's a key change...something you don't see that often.
All it means though is that you move all the chords up 2 frets.

E   B                    C#               A
Oh, oh, shala-lala I was dancing with the queen of New Orleans
E   B                    C#             A
Oh, oh, shala-lala I was dancing in the streets of New Orleans
E   B              C#                A
Oh, oh, shala-lala nothing's what it seems in New Orleans

FADE OUT

Nice job but in the first chord the B is a Bm and same thing in the last chorus with the C# is a C#m. Anyway, thanks for this tab ;-)
