The Police tabs for Born in the fifties

Guitar tabs

Transcribed by gnolivos

I've seen only one tab of this song, and it is in the wrong (standard) tuning.
If you watch Andy play this song live, you can see his is playing these chords, on
an F-tuned guitar (half step UP).
Tuning: Half Step *UP*  (A chord diagramFF tuning)

Guitar effect: light gain
