   -*************** ROUTE 66 *************-

 By Bobby Troup / Chuck Berry / Rolling Stones

Originally a jazz tune about the mythic US route written by Bobby Troup 
after WWII, it was turned into Rock'n'Roll by Chuck Berry in the fifties and 
covered by many among which the Rolling Stones in their first LP.

The version that is tabbed here below is this Rolling Stones' version.

You can hear an audio demo of what is tabbed at the URL here above.
You can also download a MP3 playback track at the same URL above.

Three guitars are tabbed :

A rhythm guitar - the solo guitar (in another UG tab)
 and the bass here.  
Everything is of course very classical here.

LEGEND :

h  : hammer-on
p  : pull-off
/  : slide-up
\  : slide-down

^^ : let ring or vibrato
(n): optional
XbY   : bend at the X fret until it sounds like Y   ( X < Y )
XrY   : release at the Y fret from the X sound ( X > Y :
        you start from the bended position )
Xb    : bend moderalety
X_  : linger on that note ( rough way of noting rhythm !)


INTRO :

                                                                             Well if
