AC/DC - It's a Long Way To the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)
Tabbed by Jason Kester <jkester@sea.ms.ch2m.com>

This is an easy song that nobody can seem to figure out how to play
because it's so far out of tune.  I guess you cant really tune a
bagpipe, so they had to tune to it.  Anyway, tune down a quarter step
(yeah, half a fret...) and then tweak it until it sounds right.
Intro: (Guitar 1)
+--------------------------------------------------------------------
+--------------------------------------------------------------------
+--------------------------------------------------------------------
+---4..4----4-----4..4----4-----4..4----4-----4..4----4--------------
+-0-2..2--X-2---0-2..2--X-2---0-2..2--X-2---0-2..2--X-2--------------
+--------------------------------------------------------------------

Fill (Guitar 2)
+-------------------
+-------------------
+----------------4.......
+---4..4-------2-4.......
+-0-2..2--X-2H4--2.......
+-------------------

After a while, Guitar 2 changes to this rhythm part:


+--------------
+--------------
+--------------
+-4-4..4--2-4--
+-0-2..2--2-2--
+--------------
  p

Fill:

+------7--X-7.. Guitar 1
+------7----7..
+--------------
+-4-4..4--2-4-- Guitar 2
+-0-2..2--2-2--
+--------------


Chorus:

+-------------------  +-------------------------------------------------
+-------------------  +-------------------------------------------------
+-4......2...4..----OR+-----9-------------------------------------------
+-4......2...2..----  +-9-7-9-------------------------------------------
+-2......0...-------  +-9-7-7-------------------------------------------
+-------------------  +-7-5(0)------------------------------------------


Bridge:
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------
+-------9-----------9---------------------------------------------------
+-9-----9-------7---9---9-----------------------------------------------
+-9-----7-------7---7---9-----------------------------------------------
+-7-------------5-------7-----------------------------------------------

Then comes the solo.  The bagpipe part goes:

+----7~~--
+---------
+-7H8-----
+---------
+---------
+---------


That's about it.  It's pretty easy.  The solo is in the 7th position.


The System:

 --2H4--         Hammer on
 --4P2--         Pull off
 --2S4--         Slide
 --2..--         Let Ring
 --2..2-         Let Ring, then hit again
 --2~~--         Vibrato

 --0-0--         Palm Mute

The spacing of the notes kind of reflects the timing of the song, but not
very well.
