STEVE MILLER BAND
Fly Like An Eagle: Words and Music by Steve Miller.
Tempo: Moderately 96
4/4 Standard Tuning

[R WILL APPEAR ON]
Both e strings if it’s a 16th note rest
Both e strings, A string, and B string, if it’s an 8th note rest(there will also be a 1
a 8; standing for 1/8 rest)
All strings if it is a ½ note rest
For the 1/4 rest there will be two 8th note rests together but instead of 1/8 in the
there is a 1/4 symbol.

[TWO NOTES THAT ARE]
One - apart=16th note (when there’s a . add a 32nd note)
2 -- apart=8th note (when there’s a . add a 16th note)
4 -----------| apart=4th note (when there’s a . add an 8th note)
8 -----------| apart=1/2 note (when there’s a . add a 4th note)

[Notes to viewer]
1. At the beginning and end of every bar there will be two empty --, which don’t mean anything.
2. If there are more then one rests next to each other you have to add up the value. Ex:
rests that are 8th note rests will add up to a quarter note rest. Two that are 1/2
will add up to a whole note. (note: if there are rests next to each other they will 
from greatest to least)
3. If the number of -‘s don’t make sense after a half note rest then it was extended to fit lyrics.
4. There is one ghost note in this song, and is in the 2nd chorus (sixth bar), and this
is optional.
5. Lyrics are not made to be played where they are placed in relation to the bar above,
they should all be in the right bar(You’ll have to listen to the song to get the exact
of the lyrics!).

Thanks you for looking at this, and if you like it great, if not, tell me why! It helps
lot with this song if you have it to listen to! This song is great cause it changes up a
which at the same time makes it hard to memorize (but who doesn’t like a chalange that 
guitar?). Have fun! GUITAR ROCKS!
