Guitar tabs with lyrics

Road to ruin (Words and Music by Mr. Big)
Transcribed from "Lean into it"
Tabs arranged with TabMaster by O. Zefmer

p = Pull off
\ = slide down

Road to ruin from the "Lean into it" is basically played with 3 parts.
I called them riffs here. These are the tabs how git-whiz Paul Gilbert
(or Pablo Gilberto) plays them "in general" they may change in detail
during the verses.
Riff 1 is played at the beginning of first two verses. A chord diagramA augmentedA strong slide down
should be used after each power chord.(E5, B5, C#5, A chord diagramF#5F#5)

Riff2 is played with a powerful groove. Try a shuffle-feel with palm mute
for the bass notes. Chords are the same as in Riff 1.


Riff 3 I seperated in two parts. In Part 1 the Chords are A chord diagramA augmentedA and B.
The chromatics are played over a C#m. The second Part is nearly the
same as Riff 2 but this one's got other ending chords

The solo is played over Riff 2. If somebody could figure out
how Paul plays that REAL fast arpeggio in that solo just give me a shout.
Hope you'll have fun
