Rock 'n' Roll Damnation  AC/DC

AC/DC "Rock and Roll Damnation"
from Powerage album
by Adrian Mayes, European Space Agency, Darmstadt, Germany

Ok this is one of my favourite AC/DC tracks. It's easy
and fun to play.
The intro arrpeggios are played over the chords A and D.
[A] [D]  
 
 E---------------------------
 B----------8------------7---
 B--------9------------7----- 2 times
 D------7------------7-------
 A---0------------5----------
 E--------------------------- 

The main riff is rock and roll itself. Perhaps one of the
most used rock rythyms going - it still sounds fresh on this
album - even in 1994 !!
[A]  
 
 E---------------------------------------
 B------3--3-po-2-----3-3-po-2-----------
 G------2--2----2-----2-2----2-----------
 D------4 -4-po-2-----4-4-po-2-----------
 A---0--0--0----0--0--0-0----0--3-4-0----
 E--------------------------------------- 

po = pull off
Try experimenting with this rythym until you get the
right feel. IT IS FUN !!!
lyrics
verse:
y' say that that you play too loud
well baby that's tough
y'say that you got too much
can't get enough
tell you that you look a fool
baby I'm a fool for you
say that you're my disease
well, shake your stuff
chorus:
It's a R[G5]ock and [D/F#]Roll damn[A5]ation
[G5]ma's own [D/F##]whipping b[A5]oy
[G5]rock and [D/F#]roll damn[A5]ation
[D5]take a chance
[E5]while you still got a choice
verse2:
you say that you want respect
honey grow up
everything that you've done for me
well thanks a lot
c'mon, get up off your bended knees
y'can , set your mind at ease
my temperature's running hot
and I've been waiting all night for a bite of what
you've got,and
Chorus:
Intro section over the lyrics:
just a boy with a toy ( ??? )
come on and take your choice
cos you're way out of reach
living in your sin you gotta practise what you preach
Chorus:
It's a R[G5]ock and [D/F#]Roll damn[A5]ation
[G5]ma's own [D/F##]whipping b[A5]oy
[G5]rock and [D/F#]roll damn[A5]ation
G5 ( not D this time )
take a chance
[D5]while you still got a choice
Back to the main riff for the solo which I can't get to
sound right - but I know that just as the vocals come
back in the solo is playing something like:
 
 E-----------17------------
 B---------------------17--
 G---16b-16b---16b-16b----- repeatedly.
 D-------------------------
 A-------------------------
 E-------------------------

try messing around with this. It's easier to stumble across
by playing than writing it down !!
Finally, the chords G and D/F# are the standard AC/DC stuff
G D/F# note no major or minor tonalities
 
 E---x------x--
 B---3------3--
 G---0------2--
 D---0------0--
 A---x------0--
 E---3------2--

I hope you enjoy it !!!
Rock and Rooooolllllllllllllllllllll !!!
