                                 The Hammer

                                 Motorhead

This is an amazing song, the last track on the classic 'Spades album
(and one of my favourites).

Tune down to Eb (half a step)

x\ = pick slide  
/ 
/ = tremelo pick

Where it says 'loose' in the song structure, play this
muted in a 'laid back' style (listen to the song).

Gb|-9---9---9-9-7---7---|
Db|-9---9---9-9---------|
Ab|-7---7---7-7---------|

Hey I put out a tab of this in E standard, I guess they aren't verifying it or whatever. but it goes something like .. then there's a full bar chord played with the thumb.... and a few other licks, i hope they put my tab up this is way wrong.

Eb|---------------------|
Bb|-9---9---9-9-9-x--9-9-|
Gb|-9---9---9-9-7-x--9-9-|
Db|-9---9---9-9-9-x--9-9|
Ab|-7---7---7-7-7-x-------|
Eb|---------------------|

I guess u don't need to use ur thumb just makes it a hell of a lot easier if you're not used to full chords.
