Born Ruffians - What To Say

Transcribed by Travis Lausch

Standard tuning 1/2 step down (EbAbDbGbBbEb)

Clean tone with a bit of reverb for the whole song. 
Didn't bother tabbing out the minor variations in each 
part. Some of the chords in the chorus might be off, but 
it's close enough. 

Intro - Bass only

Verse (0:27)
|--7-7-7-7-7-7-7h9p7-------|

|--------------------------|
|--9-9-9-9-9-9-9h10p9------|
|---------------------9----|

Repeat the above sequence twice.

definitely needs to be tuned down half a step or shifted down a fret. Otherwise spot on.

Haha, I think you're absolutely right! I had to learn this song with my old band and we always played 1/2 step down (or whatever was "close enough for rock and roll").
