          Song:Holidays In The Sun
          Band:Sex Pistols
          Tabbed by:SLAUGHTER!!!!!!!!!!!! (s_laughter_uk@yahoo.co.uk)
          
          Tuning:EADGBE
          
          
          I've tabbed the main guitar parts for this song, but there are 
          other parts which are just audible. These were just basically 
          any notes at random, keeping in the basic chord. This happens 
          a lot in Sex Pistols songs.

This one is probably the most accurate tab for this song on this site. You pretty much have all of the lead parts right, but some of the rhythm parts are a little bit off. Specifically, at the end of the main riff, Steve Jones quickly goes back to the A5 before starting over. Also, the verse and chorus might be a bit off. I think the riff at the end of the verse is this:

-----------
-----------
-----------
-----------
-0-2-3-2-0-
-----------

I have to give credit to another tab here for giving me that. If it isn't that, it's close to it. And I'm just not sure about that chorus. There might be some sliding going on. I gave it a 4 star rating. Good overall.
