Besides, I'm completely deaf when it comes to figure out chords (even worse
than solos!), and I know that he often starts these little "phrases"
by strumming a 3 or 4 notes chord, and then picks notes over it. So if
such "phrase beginnings" don't seem to match for you hear, and you
happen to find better ways to do them, please let me know!


No notations tricks : a ">" means the note following should have no
attack (i.e. slide it, hammer it, pull it, whatever!).


[Intro arpeggios] (not included in the "Money for Nothing" best-of version) :

e|-------5-7-5-7--|-----------------------|
B|-----5----------|-----------------------|
G|---5------------|----------9-12-9-------|
D|-7--------------|--------9--------12-9--|
A|----------------|-----10----------------|

...inquiry

e|-------------|
B|-------------|
G|-------------|
D|-----5-------|
A|-5-7---5-7---|
E|-------------|

2nd verse is quite much like the 1st one, give or take a few
variations:

e|------------7--|------------------------|-------------|
B|----------7----|--------------8---8-7-6-|-------6-----|
G|---------------|------------7---7-------|-(5-5)---5---| (goes on same as
D|---------------|------------------------|-------------|   1st verse)
A|---------------|------------------------|-------------|
E|---------------|------------------------|-------------|
        (repeat)
...reports      ...treason

e|--------------------------|------------------------|
B|--------10-------------8--|------------------------|
G|---------------7-9---7----|-----------4---4--------|
D|-----------9-9-----9------|---------7---7---7-5----|
A|--------------------------|---------------------7--|
E|--------------------------|------------------------|

...reason               The "phrase" marked (*) above is also a bit
                        shortened.


[Last verse] (or is it a bridge ? Who cares)

e|-------------------------7----|------------------------|----7----|-----|
B|--------------8-7-8-10-8---10-|-------7---7-8---7-8-10-|------8--|-----|
G|--------------9---------------|-----9---9-----9--------|---------|-----|
D|------------------------------|-----7------------------|---------|-----|
A|------------------------------|------------------------|---------|-----|
E|------------------------------|------------------------|---------|-----|

...you got              ...the day                ...you got

e|------------------------------|-----------------7-----|--------------|
B|-----------------7-8-7--------|--------7-8-10-8---10--|--------------|
G|-------------7-9-------9-7-9--|-----------------------|--------------|
D|-----------9------------------|-----------------------|--------------|
A|------------------------------|-----------------------|--------------|
E|------------------------------|-----------------------|--------------|

...take away            ...of wishky


Then comes a modfied version of the intro solo:

e|---------------|---------|---------------------------|
B|-----8---------|---------|---------------------------|
G|-------9>11-11-|-11-9-11-|-11-12-12>11>9>7-7>9-9>6---|

                                         ^
                                         Go (diminished G)

After the instrumental part has begun, wait for 5 beats (i.e. 9 Es
from the bass, including the 1st long one, right after "private...
investigations"  bom bom bom... :-)

e|-----------------------------------|-------------------|--------------|
B|-----------------7-----------------|---7-8-7-----------|--------------|
G|---------------7---9>11-11-9>14-14-|---------9>7-9-9---|--------------|

D|---------|-12>11>9-12-|------9---12---------|
A|---------|------------|---12---9----10-9----|
E|---------|------------|-------------------12|


Then come some E and E7 chords, which are available on the sheet music. :-)
