Precious  The Pretenders

First song from the enonymous album of the greatest band ever on the face of this earth.
Have been playing this song for years and i think its pretty damn accurate.
Corroborated by live performances by the band in newcastle. and the LA dvd etc.
Rhythm note durations are included, but you might want to ignore them.
Basically, the chords could be 5th "power" chords or major bar chords as you choose.
I think top half of the bar is used for most of the track.
I hope to get more of the pretenders punk moments online, they seem neglected by tabbers!:o
