Blue Jean  David Bowie

The Chords are pretty Easy, I'm gonna mostly concentrate on the lead.
Starts with chords:
[CCC] [GG]  
 
 |--------|
 |--------|
 |--------|
 |--------|
 |--------|
 |--------|

The Verse Riff: (make an open D chord and use your
pinky for the '3' on the first string when needed)
 
 e|---3-2--|-3-2-0-2|---3-2--|----3-2-|-3-2-0-2||:----3-2-:||
 B|--3-----|--------|--3-----|--3-----|--------||:--3-----:||
 G|-2------|--------|-2------|-2------|--------||:-2------:|| (6x)
 D|0-------|--------|0-------|0-------|--------||:0-------:||
 A|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------||:--------:||
 E|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------||:--------:||

1.Blue Jean, I just met a girl named blue jean...
2. One day, I'm gonna write a poem and a letter...
[CCC] [CCC] [GG]  
 
 e|---3-2--|-3-2-0-2|--------|---3-2--|--------|
 B|--3-----|--------|--------|--3-----|--------|
 G|-2------|--------|--------|-2------|--------|
 D|0-------|--------|--------|0-------|--------|
 A|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|
 E|--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|

First Saxophone fill (in case you're in one of those lame-o
bands without a Saxophone ;))
1st Sax fill:
 
 e|-12-------|

B|---12b--10|
 
 G|----------|
 D|----------|
 A|----------|
 E|----------|

2nd Sax fill:
(slide up to the last note
and hold it as long as you can...
squeeze tight for sustain!)
 
 e|-12-------|----/17---|
 B|---12b--10|----------|
 G|----------|----------|
 D|----------|----------|
 A|----------|----------|
 E|----------|----------|

Chorus:
(no leads here on the original version,
but I put some in as the song is kind of
boring with out them (and if you
don't have a sax in your band)
So I make my F#m and A like this:
[F#m]-2- -[A]X-
[-2-] [-2-]  
[-2-] [-2-]  
[-4-]-4- [-2-]-0-
-2- -X-
Use your first finger to make the A chord,
and you're right in position for some fills
using your A pentanoic MAJOR scale
[F#m] [A]  
 
 ||:--------|--------|--------|--------:||
 ||:--------|--------|--------|--------:||
 ||:--------|--------|--------|--------:||
 ||:--------|--------|--------|--------:|| (x4)
 ||:--------|--------|--------|--------:||
 ||:--------|--------|--------|--------:||

Sometime I feel like...
[CCC] [GG]  
 
 |--------|
 |--------|
 |--------|
 |--------|
 |--------|
 |--------|

OK, now just repeat the Verse and Intro from above again,
but before the chorus use the second sax fill...
Now the bridge:
 
 ||:--------|-3------:||
 ||:---3-6-3|---3-6-3:||
 ||:--------|--------:||
 ||:-5------|--------:|| (x2)
 ||:--------|--------:||
 ||:--------|--------:||

And back to the chorus..., and your done. Almost.
End on:
[CCC] [GG] [CCC] [GG] [E]  
 
 |--------|--------|--------|
 |--------|--------|--------|
 |--------|--------|--------|
 |--------|--------|--------|
 |--------|--------|--------|
 |--------|--------|--------|
