                                TIME THE AVENGER
                            As recorded by Pretenders
                     (From the 1983 Album LEARNING TO CRAWL)

I have not tabbed much of the outro, as it is just variations on the D C chord change.
lead guitar moves between sus2 and sus4 chord versions of each chord and occasionally
a major 7th. Use of triplets and syncopation. I have included a mix of the parts that I enjoy.:)

The chorus sounds a bit weird, due to the awkward changing of time signatures. On most
the guitar is obliterated by martin's crash cymbal. I got these few awkward bars partly
watching Loose in LA and partly from the original. Its hard to get the feel for unless 
playing with other ppl, but its doable. :)

Whilst watching the DVD for those bars I noticed that chrissie and adam play the main
different ways of playing the same riff. The way I tabbed it is how adam plays the riff
an alternative (chrissie's and bassist's way) I included in guitar 2 as a point of 
when the lead goes into thirds during verse 2.

The main riff is fairly easy, as long as you take care thinking about up and down pick
Both guitars use slight RH damping in places.

Download the powertab version from ultimate-guitar.com for a better representation

Effects wise: overdrive, compression, chorus all in moderation. Chrissie's part is
crunched.
