REO Speedwagon - Ridin' the Storm Out

Transcribed by Xenoxiduis

Notes:

This is the first tab i created.
This was transcribed by ear.

This is close to accurate but some notes may be different.
Instead of possible hammer-ons/pull-offs i used chromatics
Use what feels best to you

The "verse bassline" is very tight, each riff starts with "E|5-5"
listen to the synth/piano in the mix to help get the groove.
Once you get the groove improvise using my notes!

listen to the song for timing and tricky off-beat notes
This tab includes numerous aids to help:

> Section or bar dividers
> "0.00" references
> Lyric placement
> Other instrument inputs
> Cues
KEY
"3|2" = "quick note" similar to a semi-quaver
\ = Slide
Not all slides are there feel free to improvise your own slides

Enjoy :D

Unfortunetely UG had formatting problems which means i had to compact the
tab which IMO makes it harder/more confusing to read espeically some parts of the song.

If you want i'd be happy to Email you the orginal word-pad file

Enjoy :D
