Gringo tab
« on: March 16, 2012, 09:45:21 am »
OK....I took a stab at tabbing out Gringo...I've always liked this tune.   I think it's pretty close but I may not have the tab notated correctly just as I play it in a few places...like in the solos...but it's in the ballpark.    Anyway...would appreciate and corrections or perfections.

Well, This isn't me....but I used this youtube video to learn this.    I play it just a little differently in a few places, but this guy does a great job

Thanks. 8)
Playing it diffrently is a good thing. 

Only thing that really matters is the melody line.  You can improvise around the chords when you're playing in A or B flat or in the Dm section.  A major scale or pentatonic scale works nicely.  You can work in some double stops if you're comfortable doing those.   ;D
