Intro Tab: Can't Fight This Feeling - REO Speedwagon

Transcirption - Marc Virata 

I've seen requests for this song.  I can play/fake it on piano but I've 
found translating this to guitar to be difficult (as you'll see).  The 
following tab is for the intro.  If people can figure out how to avoid 
the finger stretches (alternate tunings?) let me know.  If there's 
interest, I'll continue tabbing the entire song as I play it on piano.  
Comments are appreciated.

I've separated the tab into bass and guitar parts.  "( )"'s indicate 
sustained notes played separately.  Rhythm is approximated by spacing, but 
the timing on the bass and guitar parts are the same (bass tab numbers 
directly below guitar tab numbers are played at the same time).Guitar
E------------0-----------0-----------0-----------0-
B---0--2-----------0-----------------------0------- (no, I can't play
G-2----2-----------2-----------2-----------2-------  this myself easily
D---------2-----2-----2-----2--4--------------2----  with a 2nd fret to 
A---------------------------------7-----7----------  7th fret span)
E--------------------------------------------------

Bass
G------1--------1--1--------1--1--------1--1-------Guitar
E------------0-----------0-----------0-----------0-
B---0--2-----------0-----------2-----------0-------
G-2----2-----------2-----------4-----------2-------
D---------2-----2-----2-----2-----------------2----
A---------------------------------7-----7----------
E--------------------------------------------------

Bass
D------4--------4--4--------4--4--------4--4-------Guitar
E------------0---------------------------------
B---0--2-----------0--------(0)----------------
G-2----2-----------2-----(1)-----2-------------
D---------2-----2-----(2)--------4-------------
A--------------------------------5--5--4--0--2-
E-----------------------------------------2--4-

Bass
D------0--------0--0-------------0--------1----


Now if someone can find a way to avoid these finger spans and possibly 
combine the bass part to the guitar, then please let me know.  I can use 
this knowledge to continue tabbing the rest of the song.  If you 
play these notes on piano, it will be a lot easier and I think sounds 
pretty much like the real version.  Knowing the intro is the basis for 
much of the song.  Any insight is appreciated.

Nice work, my man. In response to your question, though - if you drop the 7th fret note to an open E, it works the same (I know, technically an octave lower, but can't have everything). Or you could try a pull-off on the 4th fret, D string, to the 2nd fret, to keep it pitch-perfect, but maybe end up getting confused...

I am a beginning guitar player and tend to look for help any where I can get it. I found a fret board layout of the notes. http://guitarsecrets.com/homeworktw.htm

According to their chart the 2 to 7 stretch is not needed because they are the same note on the same octave. I have used this chart several times to figure out an alternative fingering.

I hope this helps and I look forward to more of your work.
