About this tab version
Lucy Sturm former front woman of Fly Leaf recorded her version of Roxanne by the Police. This version is rock and the key has been dropped from G to Eflat. Also the chords have been changes from jazz chords to minors and sustains. This is the first version uploaded to U G. The song is 10th out of 11 tracks and most won't even know it exsists. It's a very cool remake. Was this info helpful? Yes No

As of right now, the chords you see are the correct chords when you hover over them with your pointer. I have to remember that if I want to verify the exact chord I intend to use I should check my work with Ultimate Guitars dictionary of chords first. The internet seems to be wrong about lots of things. I find it irritating when I look for a song and the transcriber has wrong chords, in wrong key, Capo on wrong fret, dropped D tuning instead of concert A 440 etc. I want to be the guy that people can count on when the visit Ultimateguitar.com
