Subject: TAB:LennyKravitz"Rock and Roll is Dead"

Lenny Kravitz- 
³Rock and Roll is Dead²
Transcribed by Bryan Pero(perob@willow.uml.edu)

Well these are just all the basic Led Zeppelinish riffs in the 
song and how they fit with the lyrics.  I have most of the 
solo figured out and I¹ll post it later, if you really want 
it.  

Intro/Rythym figure 1.(ryth.fig.1. is intro w/out muted strum 
and slide from 17th fret).  This is two guitars playing 
together(L.Kravitz and Craig Ross) arranged for one guitar:
   
-Palm Mute-
E--------------------------------------------------------
B--X-X-X----------------------------------X/17-17-17-17--
G--X-X-X----------------------------------X/17-17-17-17--
D--X-X-X----------------3-----------------X/17-17-17-17--
A--X-X-X-------------3^5--5^3-------------X/17-17-17-17--
E---------17\--3-4-5----------5^3--3-4-5-----------------

Before each verse Ryth.fig.1. ends with this little riff 
(ending on either D or E).  There are 2 guitar parts.  So, 
again, this comes right after you play rthy.fig.1. and are 
about to go into a verse:

Gtr.1
   A  G  D  or E  (let the D and E chords sustain)
E--------2-----4--
B--2-----3--or-5--
G--2-----2-----4--
D--2--------------
A-----------------
E-----3-----------

Gtr.2
  A   G  D   or E (let D and E sustain)
E------------------
B------------------
G------------------
D------------------
A--------5---or-7--
E--5--3------------

Fill #1 (this occurs mainly right after a verse, before 
Ryth.fig.1 is played)
E---------------------
B---------------------
G---------------------
D---------3-----------
A--5~-3-5---5^3-------
E---------------5-3---

Rythym fig. 2 (played during solo with ryth.fig.1)
E-------------------------------
B-------------------------------
G------------3------------------
D--------3-5---5^3--------------
A--3-4-5-----------5-3--3-4-5---
E-------------------------------

Variation on ryth.fig.1.(towards and at end of song)
E---------------------------------
B---------------------------------
G---------------------------------
D-----------3---------------------
A--------3^5--5^3-----------------
E--3-4-5----------5^3--3-3-4-4-5--

Fill #2(after vaariation on ryth.fig 1.)
E---------------
B---------------
G--3------------
D----5-3--------
A-------5-3-----
E-----------5---

Lyrics w/riffs:

D                                             fill #1  
rythfig1.end on D 
You think you¹re on top of the world but it¹s really over

D                                                         
fill#1  rth.fig 1.
Runnin¹ round with diamond rings and coke spoons that are 
overflowin¹

                   Rythfig.1 end on E
Rock and Roll is dead

E                                                 fill#1            
Rtyhfig 1.
All the money in the world can¹t buy you from the place you¹re 
going to

                                Ryth.fig.1 end on D
Oooh Yeah   Rock and Roll is dead (3x)

D                                         fill#1               
R.fig1.end on D
You can¹t even sing or play an instrument you just scream 
instead, ooh yeah!

D                                            fill#1.       
rtyfig1.
You¹re living for an image so you¹ve got 500 women in your bed

                               Ryth.fig.1. end on E
Ooh Yeah,   Rock and Roll is dead

E                                                               
fill#1
But it¹s real hard to be yourself when you¹re living with 
those demons in your 

ryhfig.1                           ryth.fig.1.
Head,  Ooh Yeah,  Rock and Roll is dead  


Gutiar Solo (w/ryth.fig 1 and 2 end w/fill#1)

Ryth.fig.1.
Rock and Roll is dead 

Repeat with Variation on Ryth.fig.1. and fill #2

End on Variation of Ryth.fif.2.  

That¹s it!
