Artist: Bruce Springsteen (with some of the E Street Band)
Song: Tunnel of Love
Album: Tunnel of Love

Tabbed by Anthony DePiano on November 14, 2008

I looked at other tabs and they sounded decent but I tried
to get this dead on and I think it sounds really good.  I
think I covered pretty much everything in the song.

TUNING:
|--------------------------------------------------------|
|**NOT Standard Tuning**                                 |
|Tuning: EADGAd (low to high)                            |
|                                                        |
|Tune your high “e” and “B” down a step to a “d” and “A” |
|***Then put a capo on the 3rd fret***                   |
|--------------------------------------------------------|

CAPO ON 3rd FRET.  Now 3rd fret = 0.

b = bend
/ = slide
[] = pinch harmonic
v = vibrato or hold note
x = muted string
() = you don’t have to play those notes but sound
     alright if you do.

INTRO
d--14-14-----12-------12-|-14-14-----12-------12--|
A--12-12--------12-------|-12-12--------12--------| play
G--14-14--12-------12----|-14-14--12-------12-----| until
D------------------------|------------------------| chords
A------------------------|------------------------| come in
E------------------------|------------------------|
I just mess around with the 12’s on the G,A, and d strings.

d--0----0----0----------0----0----4---2---|
A--0----0----0----------0----0----0---0---|
G--2----4----0----2-----2----4----4---2---|  2x
D--2----2----0----0-----2----2----2---0---|
A--0----2----2----0-----0----2----0---0---|
E-(0)--(0)---3----2----(0)--(0)-----------|
Get used to the hand formations.  They can be hard
to switch quickly.

Just so you don’t think I know what I’m talking
about:
**THIS IS TECHINCALLY WHAT YOU ARE PLAYING:
d--3----3----3----------3----3----7----5--|
A--3----3----3----------3----3----3----3--|
G--5----7----3----5-----5----7----7----5--|
D--5----5----3----3-----5----5----5----3--|
A--3----5----5----3-----3----5----3----3--|
E-(3)--(3)---6----5----(3)--(3)-----------|

A--15--17--------------15---17----------------|
G---------------------------------------------|

d-----(2)-----------------------(0---------------|
A-----(2)-----------------------(0)--------------|
G------4-------------------------2---------------|
D------2-------------------------0---------------|

SOLO: (still with EADGAd tuning)

Nils Lofgren’s awesome solo (I’m not 100% on this)
I use heavy distortion with a wah-wah pedal.
