Red Mosquito

Transcribed by Paul Stipack (paul.stipack@hunterlink.net.au)

A couple of people have said they've seen PJ play this live and
it's in standard tuning. I've also been told that the opening riff
is played at the 5th fret so I've tried to figure it out there,
I hope it sounds OK. 
Anyone want to have a go at the solos?

Verse 1:

Watched out the window with a red mosquito
I was not allowed to leave the room
I saw the sun go down and now it's coming up
Somewhere in the time between


Chorus:

I was bitten
must have been the devil
He was just paying me

A little visit
Reminded me of his presense
Letting me know

He's waiting


Intro riff x4


Verse 2:

Red man's your neighbor call it behavior
While you're climbing up slippery hills
Two steps ahead of him punctures in your neck
hovering just above your bed hovering just above your bed


Chorus


Intro riff x 8


Chorus riff (first bar only) x 8 out

Awe! Come on! It's been a decade! Can't anyone tab the solos yet? For cryin' out loud! Are you all too chicken? Do I
have to post one myself? You wouldn't want that!

2016 still no solo on the best tab for Red Mosquito. Don't matter, PJ still kicks ass.
