Generation X Ready, Steady go
Tabbed by Liam

Tuning: standard

This is the classic song for Gen X, I love this song and I think there is a chord
of this song on this site but its wrong, they are playing all the chords two notes lower than
should be, I used to play it like that but I saw Billy Idol perform it back in November 
this is how Steve Stevens plays it, and is also how Gen X used to play it, enjoy!
