                            Watch That Man - David Bowie
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: adslam3

While at home with H1N1, I realized that his song has not been tabbed.
So I am going to try to correct this with the following.
Also, due to the fact that I have an insane amount of downtime, expect
a chords version with lyrics soon.

Tuning: Standard - This is a tab just for the Rhythm Guitar

NOTE: This song has some "surf rock" strumming in the verses that I will try
to show but overall I'm NOT SHOWING EXACT STRUMMING as the chord changes
are easy to hear.

Intro: (repeate twice)
       G      Cadd9       E           A
e|-----3~------3~-----------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----3~------3~-----------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----0~------0~-----------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----0~------2~---------2-------------------------------------------------|
A|-----2~------3~---------2-----------7-7-9-7-------------------------------|
E|-----3~-----------------0-----------5-5-5-5-------------------------------|
                                      ^^^^^^^ This is the "surf rock" stuff

Verses: This is played twice for each verse. Remember: strumming NOT exact!
    A        D        E           F#
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------7-7-9-7--9-9-11-9----------------------------------------------|
A|--7-7-9-7--5-5-5-5--7-7-7--7----4-4-4-4-----------------------------------|
E|--5-5-5-5-----------------------2-2-2-2-----------------------------------|
Note: When listening to the song, you'll notice the E is strummed longer
than the other chords.

Bridge
     D    A    B         D  rest  D    A     E
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---7-------------------7--------7-----------------------------------------|
D|---7----7--------------7--------7----7-----9-9-11-9-----------------------|
A|---5----7----9-9-11-9--5--------5----7-----7-7-7--7-----------------------|
E|--------5----7-7-7--7----------------5------------------------------------|

Chorus
   Watch that man
    A     D    G     C    D    C    G
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------7----------5----7----5--------------------------------------------|
D|--7-----7----5-----5----7----5----5---------------------------------------|
A|--7-----5----5-----3----5----3----5---------------------------------------|
E|--5----------3--------------------3---------------------------------------|

   Watch that man
    A     D    G     C    D    C    B    C
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------7----------5----7----5----4----5----------------------------------|
D|--7-----7----5-----5----7----5----4----5----------------------------------|
A|--7-----5----5-----3----5----3----2----3----------------------------------|
E|--5----------3------------------------------------------------------------|

Now go back to the Intro, then verse, then bridge, then chorus, then this:

Ending: (where bowie & co sing "watch that man" over and over again)
Just repeate the following chords and listen for the changes

    G       Cadd9
e|--3--------3--------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--3--------3--------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--0--------0--------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--0--------2--------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--2--------3--------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--3-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

And that's it! Sorry I don't have Mick's guitar part. It's fantastic and
I'm not that good to figure it out.  But enjoy this so you can play it on
your own.
