                             Take On Me - Reel Big Fish
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: SupremeACL

This is Reel Big Fish's Take On Me from the BASEketball Soundtrack. This song is in the 
of A Major. For the chords, Aaron usually plays the top 3 or 4 notes, but I prefer to do 
full chords. I'm tabbing for the full chords. Here it goes!

Tuning: Standard eBGDAE


Intro (w/ distortion):
     Bm
e|---2---2-------------------------------------------|

E|--5555-5------------------------|-55555555--------------------------------|

Then he does some soloing which is hard to figure out.  I'll tab a little of it.
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------10-9-10-9-10-12-10-9-10-9-10-9-10-12-10-9------------|
G|-9p7p9p7p9p7p9p7p9p7-------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then end of the solo is:
e|---------14h15h17--------14h15h17--------14h15h17-17b-|
B|-14h15h17--------14h15h17--------14h15h17-------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------|

The order:
Intro
Verse A x4
Verse B
Chorus
Verse A x2
Verse B
Chorus
Bridge
Verse A x4
Verse B
Chorus 3

Thank you so much for tabbing this, I use what you tabbed for the solo to improvise, it was the only part I couldn't get.
