Don't Stand So Close To Me
The Police

Note: In this song, the solo needs some special effects. I recommend the RP50 
guitar pedal, on setting #40.

[Intro]
 (Hold the last note)
e|-------------------|
B|-------------------|
G|----0--3--2--0-----|
D|--1--------3--1----|
A|-------------------|
E|-------------------|

 Then the drums come in, and in the background, there is Andy going:
         Eb                                             Gm
e|--6-6--6-6--6-6--6-6---10-10--10-10--10-10--10----|
B|--8-8--8-8--8-8--8-8---11-11--11-11--11-11--11----|
G|--8-8--8-8--8-8--8-8---12-12--12-12--12-12--12----|
D|--8-8--8-8--8-8--8-8---12-12--12-12--12-12--12----|
A|--6-6--6-6--6-6--6-6---10-10--10-10--10-10--10----|
E|--------------------------------------------------|
Repeat this twice, then the verse.

[Verse]
 (This may sound a bit odd at first, but that's because I'm adding the harmony for the bass note)
e|---------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------|
G|---2-3-2--0-----2-3-2--0----2-3-2--0----2-3-2--0---|
D|--1-----3---1--1-----3--0--0-----3--0--0-----3--1--|
A|---------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------|
Repeat that four times, then the chorus.

[Chorus]
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----11-11-9-9--------11-11-9-9--------11-11-9-9-------11-11-9-9~-|
D|-------------12-12------------12-12------------12-12-------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--10---------------10---------------10---------------10----------|
Repeat that twice.

[Solo]
E|--6------10-----------|
B|---8-------11---------|
G|----8--------12-------|
D|-----8---------12-----|
A|------6----------10---|
E|----------------------|
Then Repeat that however many times.

I know this tab isn't completely accurate, but I hope it helps you to learn one of the 
police songs!

At least, unlike the old one, this tab is readable.
