               "CDFF - Lucky This Time" - Mr Big

                 From the album, "Lean Into It"

                 Words and music by Jeff Paris

                 [Typed out by Mardi Gras(TNT]

    I recently got a request for help with this one.  Note that this has not been completely worked out, 
should act as a foundation for you to work on.  I found a little help for this from a friend of mine.


Notes:  Rhy Fig 1 is played for the intro and also through the verses.  Rhy         Fig 2 is played during 
chorus.
        The intro sections should be played with distortion, so turn the         gain up!  The chorus 
is played with very light distortion         with some sort of a wave-like effect added.

Tablature explanation:

                        2^4     Hammer on from 2 to 4

                        4^2     Pull off from 4 to 2

                        2/4     Slide up from 2 to 4

                        4\2     Slide down from 4 to 2

                        2'(4)   Bend up a whole step from 2 to 4

                        (4)`2   Release bend a whole step from 4 to 2

                        2~~~    Vibrato on 2

                        2^^^    Heavy vibrato/Tremelo vibrato on 2

                        +2      Tap on 2

                        2-      Release tap off 2

                        +2/4    Tap 2 and slide up to 4

                        +4\2    Tap 4 and slide down to 2

The lyrics:

     Verse 1:  Lost and alone in this city of darkness
              Empty of lovers and full of lies
              You build a wall between your dreams and the madness
              I reach out my hand, but you run and hide

Pre chorus 1:  I've watched you cry in the rain
               I wanna bring back the joy again

    Chorus 1:  Open your heart to mine
               I believe, I believe
               You might be lucky this time
               You might be lucky this time

     Verse 2:  No guarantees when you risk your emotion
               So you surrender and it all went astray
               Bitter and hopeless in your cold isolation
               But you my love won't ever fade away

Pre chorus 2:  I wanna dry all your tears, yes
               You know there's nothing to fear, baby

    Chorus 2:  (Same as chorus 1)

      Bridge:  And when the shadows start to fall
