Tabbed by David Bédard-Barrette, McGill University, Canada, December 2004
davidbarrette@videotron.ca

Here is another great song by Bran Van 3000. This one is on the Discosis album. Thanks
to Peter Leenborg Jensen for his work on the song. My version is based on his original
tab, but solves the problems that were in it.

I'm pretty sure for this on, but your comments are welcome. Don't forget the
capo on the 1st fret. All the riffs are relative to the capo. Standard tuning.


Song: Rock Star
Band: Bran Van 3000     
Album: Discosis
Composers: James Di Salvio/Sara Johnston 
Version: Album version

Intro
-----

Riff 01 [x2]


Verse 01
--------

Riff 01
Inappropriate behaviour

Thinking distraction will be your saviour
Riff 01
This need seems never-ending

These nights seem all-pretending
Riff 02
The record's spins comfort me
Riff 02
Dreams locked in the record company 


Verse 02
--------

Riff 01
And all those things you said you'd never do

Watch them slowly catch up with you
Riff 01
So unrelenting

And you're unrepenting
Riff 02
Go to sleep as the sky turns blue
Riff 02
Simply running out of things to abuse 


Chorus
-------
Riff 03
And I said, mama, gonna buy you out
Riff 03
I'm a rockstar now
Riff 03
I said, mama, gonna buy you out
Riff 03
I'm a rockstar now 

Bridge
------

Riff 04


Verse 03
--------

Riff 01
You lead me down the road with maybe

Just some ego tripping with a lady
Riff 01
It seems I'm always waiting

Waiting for what?
Riff 02
And the laziness won't disappear
Riff 02
My indifference sets in out of fear

Verse 04
--------

Riff 01
Mean ass spider, called her hairy

And she likes her webs big and scary
Riff 01
She'll never let go

Not as long as she's still spinning
Riff 02
But the irony just gets lost
Riff 02
'Cause no one cares who pays the cost 

Chorus
-------
Riff 03
And I said, mama, gonna buy you out
Riff 03
I'm a rockstar now
Riff 03
I said, mama, gonna buy you out
Riff 03        G
I'm a rockstar now 


End the song with an open "G" chord [320033] Let ring.

Just seen this for the first time and at a first glance it looks good!

I'll try it out and give you some feedback if you're still there.
