From: Glen Norman Pavan 

artist:  Cheap Trick
song:  Baby Loves To Rock
album:  All Shook Up
key:  D/B
tuning:
          this song can be done in standard tuning on a four string,
granted, it will sound stupid as hell merely because of one low D.
I personally am too lazy to tune down, although it only requires doing
the E and A's down a whole step, or the E down a whole step for some
(I tried this and can't play a scale where the open A is an A and the 5th
fret on the E is a G.)  Here is the tab in standard tuning for a four
string;  if you tune down your E and A, just move the numbers up two
frets, and play the bass solo an octave lower, starting on the 7th fret
of the A string, which'll be a D.  Here we go:


verse

     (N.C.) More and more I'm thinking about love

A--4-5-5-5---4-5-5-5----4-5-5-3-5

     (N.C.) Lovin' ain't all I'm a thinking of

A--4-5-5-5---4-5-5-5----4-5-5-3-5

     (N.C) Some people do and so people don't

E--4-5-5-5---4-5-5-5----4-5-5-3-5

     (N.C.) Some people will and say they won't

A--4-5-5-5----4-5-5-5---4-5-5-3-5-


chorus

     But my (G)baby (D) loves to (A) rock
     My (G)baby (D)loves to (A)roll
     My (G)baby (D)loves to (A)all night long
     My (G)baby (D)loves to (A)rock


second verse

     More and more I'm thinking about S-S-S
     The more I think, the better is gets
     More and more I'm a thinking about se-se-se-
     The more I think, the worse it gets

repeat chorus
        in the last line of the chorus, instead of the A, go to
    an E (second fret D string/7th fret A string) and do an E major scale
    descending one octave to low E.

          She loves to rock  (another scale)
          She loves to rock  (another scale)
          She loves to rock  (another scale)

third verse

         (guitar solo in D, bass and drums silent)

A--4-5-5-5----4-5-5-5----4-5-5-3-5

      (bass solo!)
         standard tuning                  tuned down full step

G--7-6-4---4---------------  |   G--7-6-4---4-------------- |
D--------7---7-5-4-5-4-----  |   D--------7---7-5-4-5-4-2-0 |
A----------------------7-5- ------------------------------- |

A---4-5-5-5---4-5-5-5---4-5-5-3-5

     (guitar solo in A)

E---4-5-5-5----4-5-5-5--4-5-5-3-5-

    (guitar solo in D)

A---4-5-5-5----4-5-5-5---4-5-5-3-5

repeat chorus, and do the descending scale part again


bridge

     (D) In the morning in the evening
     (A) In the summer in the winter
     (G) in my car in the night
     (D) in an airplane not in Russia

do the descending scale part of the chorus 4 times

then do the first two lines of the first verse and there you have it


this was a bitch to tab, and I hope I didn't confuse anybody TOO badly

Playing those descending scales is realy key to a lot of Cheap Trick's tunes.

This is one many of my favorite Cheap Trick jams!
