Rough Boy - ZZ Top
 
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Song: Rough Boy
Band: ZZ Top
Album: Greatest Hits
Tabbed by: ShecterMan71
Tempo: 80
This is a great song tabbed from the ZZ Top Anthology book ? once again,
I?ve made this as simple as possible ? on the INTRO, Guitar 1 chords are
Strummed 1x
A lot of synthesizer work is done on this song ? on most of the chords
you can do a continuous palm mute in its place ? just listen to it

OUTRO SOLO - Guitar 2
Note - This outro chord progression is VERY long and complicated ? these
are the correct chords for the rhythm guitar and the majority of them are
one chord per 2 bars ? you?ll have to listen to the solo to get the chord
changes
