AC/DC - Decibel Tab

---------------------------------------------------------

Hey Everyone,

Here is the the song 'Decibel' off of AC/DC's new album 'Black Ice'...
I haven't worked out the solo's and will probaly wait for someone else to do that...
This is the first song I've ever worked out by ear and tabbed down so please make room 
mistakes although I'm 95% sure this tab is correct...

Contact Email: youleben@gmail.com

Cheers,
Ben Youle

Not entirely sure about the main riff. I think it goes more like this:

E|-----------------------|
B|-----------------------|
G|---------------5-------|
D|-5-7-7-5-7-7-7---7~~~~-|
A|-0-0-0-0-0-0-----------|
E|-----------------------|

They both sound correct tbh...

Maybe Angus plays one and Malcolm plays the other?

CORRECTION:

E|------------------------
B|------------------------
G|-2-2-2-2-2-2--7p5-2~~~~~(bend back and forth)
D|-2-2-2-2-2-2------------
A|-3-0-0-0-3-0------------
E|------------------------

You can either pick the 2G or slide it down before you bend it, either sounds like the song the the 2G is louder the 7 or 5 frets G string.

But the 5D as it is in the original tab is one octave to low, you can even hear it on the track G~L
