                             Need you Tonight, 1987 - INXS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:Eddy

Tuning:Std

It's a 3-part guitar song (ideal if you have a looper pedal etc)
Play part 1 for 4 bars, then loop/repeat;  then, add 2nd & 3rd parts, etc

Ideally, played on a F-Strat or tele etc, to get that classic clean 'jangly' sound.


Part/Guitar #1

Basically, a power chord/C5 on the bottom 3 strings for 3 'hard' downstrokes, followed 
by a descending riff on the top 2 strings (1st finger across e & B string on 8th 
fret, & use 3rd and 2nd fingers on top e string)

e|--------------11--10--8----------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------8---8---8----------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--10--10--10---------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--10--10--10---------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--8---8---10---------------------------------------------------------------|


Part/Guitar #2
(the 'Funky' bass-line - use a bit of crunch/o'drive)

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------8-8-6-8---------------------------------------------------------|
E|--8--6--8------------------------------------------------------------------|


Part/Guitar #3
