People are Strange
from Strange Days
by The Doors

This transciption is an amendment to those posted by Glen Word and
Serge Belongie (
It works best when played with two guitars. Start
the song off with one guitar playing the tab I have listed
below. At the chorus bring in a second guitar such that both are
strumming the chords as suggested by Glen Word. Go back to the verse
and have the second guitar strumming while the first guitar plays
the tab. At the chorus, again have both guitars strumming. Now the
guitar solo. Guitar 2 strums the chords to the verse as before while
guitar one plays the solo posted and transcribed by Serge Belongie.
Finally, go back to chorus with both guitars strumming.
--3-- indicates the three notes above are tripplets. If you don't
read enough music to know this rythum don't worry about it.
It is not that important.
