			    Watch That Man - David Bowie
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: adslam3

While at home with H1N1, I realized that his song has not been tabbed.
So I am going to try to correct this with the following.
Also, due to the fact that I have an insane amount of downtime, expect
a chords version with lyrics soon.
Tuning: Standard - This is a tab just for the Rhythm Guitar


NOTE: This song has some "surf rock" strumming in the verses that I will try
to show but overall I'm NOT SHOWING EXACT STRUMMING as the chord changes
are easy to hear.


Intro: (repeate twice)

                                      ^^^^^^^ This is the "surf rock" stuff

Verses: This is played twice for each verse. Remember: strumming NOT exact!

Note: When listening to the song, you'll notice the A chord diagramE MajorE is strummed longer
than the other chords.

Now go back to the Intro, then verse, then bridge, then chorus, then this:


Ending: (where bowie & co sing "watch that man" over and over again)
Just repeate the following chords and listen for the changes

And that's it! Sorry I don't have Mick's guitar part. It's fantastic and
I'm not that good to figure it out.  But enjoy this so you can play it on
your own.
