Subject: (fwd) TAB:"Engine 999" by The Hooters

Hello all Hooters fans out there, and especially to Johnny Disobidience(Thanks
for adding me to the mailing list). Here is a transcription of "Engine 999",
from the "One Way Home" album. As usual I forgot to bring the CD booklet, so
I can't type in any lyrics, and as usual I don't claim to have perfect pitch
or anything. This is how I play it. If you find any particularily embarrasing
mistakes, mail me and let me know!:) (I won't mind if you mail me if you find
it useful either.:))

ENGINE 999 by The Hooters.
Transcribed by Markus Jakobsson.

This is actually quite a simple song. There is one riff for the verse, and
one for the chorus (with only minor variations). And then the rythm for the
solo part, and that's it.

Intro/verse riff.

There, play that a few times, and then go to the chorus.

Play that two times the first chorus, a few more times in later choruses.
Listen to the record.

Solo...
Err, I discover now that I've forgotten to write the solo rythm part down.
It shouldn't be too hard to figure it out. The chords should be Am, G, and F
in the first part, and then C, F, and G the second.(Not 100% though) I'll
try to remember to send in a completion later.(sorry) Hope you find it
useful anyway.
