The Revs - Turning Japanese
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Revs are a really good Irish rock/punk band from Donegal,
at the moment theyre unheard of outside Ireland (and, strangely, Japan)
but this is the tab for their cool version of the classic "Turning Japanese"
Have done the tab for one guitar only, even though i think it is done on two.
Ive tabbed each bit of the song, but refer to the "Song Order" at the end of the
tab to see when each should be played.
Can't figure out the solo yet but will post an update if and when i do.
Enjoy!!

ENDING: (basically just the G-D-F-C chords of the chorus strummed,
but the riffs arent included. It is played on its own once, then twice more
with the solo played over it. The song fades out to a bassline)
