Chuck Berry- Johnny B. Goode

By the way, don't take the counting too seriously... it's only there for a bit of minor 
if you can't get a hard part, not as a rhythm guide for the entire piece.

I've checked this a few times, I'm pretty sure that it's correct, although I can't be 
sure.

[Verse]

The guitar doesn't actually play in the verse (just bass and piano), but if
you want something to strum- I suggest using these chords:

    Bb           Eb           F
e|----|     e|----|     e|----|
B|----|     B|-8--|     B|-10-|
G|-7--|     G|-8--|     G|-10-|
D|-8--|     D|-8--|     D|-10-|
A|-8--|     A|-6--|     A|-8--|
E|-6--|     E|----|     E|----|

Bb  Bb  Eb  Bb  F  Bb            (Play each chord for one line of the song)

Thanks so much for this tab! I'm using it to help me for the Minnesota State Fair Talent Contest. I'll tell you if I get anywhere...

So I'm guessing you didn't get anywhere?
Anyways, nice tab, but I think version3 sounds better with more than only the root notes.
