              LIFE'S BEEN GOOD   -  Joe Walsh
          ---------------------------------------

As this is quite a long song, I'll start the ball rolling with the
intro riff


Usual symbols :

b = bend up
r = release bend
/ = slide up

The last A chord is where the other instruments come in

He carries on playing this riff while the slide guitar etc play
other stuff


Then after 8 or 16 bars the acoustic guitar comes in with :

E---5-5-5---3-3-3--1-1----5-5-5---3-3-3--1-1----5-5-5---3-3-3--0-0-0-0----
B---6-6-6---5-5-5--1-1----6-6-6---5-5-5--1-1----5-5-5---3-3-3--1-1-0-0h1--
G---5-5-5---5-5-5--2-2----5-5-5---5-5-5--2-2----5-5-5---4-4-4--2-2-0-0h2--
D---
A---
E---

Then a little lead in on the electric:

E--
B--
G--
D------0-2-3---
A---3----------
E--


And the singing starts here!

I don't know the words, but the chords start with:

F C/E Dm C F C/E Dm C

(repeat once)

then:

G FaddG C G   C G      C   G

G FaddG C G   C  G/B    A

The words over the last C G/B  A are "Life's been good to me so
far"

Then it goes back to F C/E Dm etc


Shapes:

EADGBE     EADGBE   EADGBE
xx3213     x20003   xx2010

 FaddG       G/B     C/E

I think you know the others....


Hope this gets you started- the rest of the song is mostly repeats
and variations on these bits i.e the intro riff, acoustic chords
and the main body of the song (the bit above with the chords)

Hope y'all enjoy!


Howard
