                               TATTOOED LOVE BOYS
                            As recorded by Pretenders
                        (From the 1980 Album PRETENDERS)

Words and Music by C Hynde

I exported this from the Ptb i made in order to make it accessible for all. It needed a 
of clearing up, resulting in simplifying the chord names in the tab

itself. If there are any other unclear bits, msg me and ill sort them out. Or download 
ptb from ultimate-guitar.com

Watch Out for the time sig. changes. They're all over the place.
Thanks to Alisdair MacRae-Birch, jazz guitarist, for some pointers in TS notation, from 
i was able to decipher the rest
O/D lead guitar, crunch rhythm guitar.

shouldn't that bolded 11 be a 12, or an 8 on the 2nd string? i dunno, it just sounds more accurate when playing the G instead of Gb. great tab nonetheless.

whoops, the 11 didn't show up bolded, i meant the one in the last measure at the end of the riff.
