SOMEBODY TO LOVE - Jefferson Airplane, 1967
-------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Callalou
aricjohnsen@yahoo.com

Tuning: Standard

A classic tune from the 1967 album Surrealistic Pillow. There are plenty of great tabs 
on here for Paul's chords, but I couldn't find any for Jorma's lead. Most of the solo is 
in F# minor pentatonic.

There are plenty of little breaks throughout the song where Jorma solos; I've tabbed 
them all as well as the long coda solo at the end.

Use high treble and lots of reverb and chorus to get that airy sound.

Notes:

pb = Pre-bend to note indicated, hit it, and release back to normal position while note rings.

b  = Bend to note indicated / slight bend if no value
p  = pull off
r  = release
x  = mute note right after hitting
w  = drop pitch with whammy bar
44 = tremolo
