Cities on Flame ( With Rock and Roll )

Key of A so F# Blues type runs work great. Try the CBA + GF#E type triplets
in the leads. Also choose small three note riffs from the Blues scales and
try little with the arpeggio of open A.

R = rest
*** = triplet

Main Riff


                       ***                      ***

Lead played during second pass of above intro riff


   F#m                                  Em
My heart is Black and my lips are cold. Cities on Flame with rock and roll.

      F#m                                        Em
Three thousand guitars they seem to cry.      My ears will melt and then

               D                          A              Bm
my eyes.  So,  let the girl let that girl rock and roll. Cities on Flame
               (play D full and emphasis F# and E-first string with chord)

now,      with rock and roll.

Single Notes:

   F#       A  F#     C#         F#
My heart is    black      and my lips  etc.

E      G  E      B       E        G  E     B        F#
Cities on Flame     with rock and    roll.    Three thousand

Try these small riffs. (play lower frets if preferred)


And this riff
