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---|
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.
