                      FM  - Steely Dan
                  ------------------------

                                             Tabbed by Howard Wright

                                             spxhaw@uk.ac.cf.thor


INTRO:

E--
B--2-3-2-3-2-3-2-3--|     keep repeating
G--2-4-2-4-2-4-2-4--|

While the two note idea above keeps repeating, the guitar plays :

E-----9---|
B-----10--| (let ring...)
G-----9---|
D-----9---|

VERSE 1:
--------

It's impossible to get both the piano stuff and the guitar stuff into one guitar
part - and both are important to get the feel of the song, so I've tabbed them
separately.

It's only for the first few lines of each verse that it causes a problem - anyway
for these lines I'll do the piano bit on one line of tab (above the words), and
the guitar riff that goes with it below the words.

 / = slide up


E-7/9-----7/9---7-------------------------7/9---7/9---7-------------7/9---7/9--|
