Shot Through The Heart
Artist: Bon Jovi
Album: Bon Jovi

###   NOT TO BE CONFUSED   ###

###   A BAD NAME"          ###

A truly amazing and unappreciated song that seems to have been forgotten.
It is constantly disregarded due to the fact that its title is the same as
the lyrics in the more popular "You Give Love a Bad Name." This is my first
tab so bear with me please :P

On the album this song is played with 2 guitars. The second guitar just plays chords and the occasional
riff. Listen to the song and you should be able to figure out which guitar plays what.

Standard tuning

Legend:
\   downward slide
*   harmonic
h   hammer
p   pull off
^   bend
(7) ghost note
x   palm mute
