Subject: TAB: Promise by the Violent Femmes
( Tab from: )
Here's Promise by the Violent Femmes from the album Violent Femmes (good name
guys). I don't know the names of power chords so I'll just tab them! Here goes:
Main Riff:
 E--2-2------1-1-1--1-1-1-1/2 (the 224 chord there is the slide right

into the repeat of the riff, just repeat the riff during the verses)
[--] [-5] [-3]  
[-5] [-5] [-3]  
[-5] [-3] [-1]  
[E-3]could you ever w[--]ant me to l[--]ove you? could you ever want me to care?
-that part I'm a bit iffy on but it's close. Obviouslyyou hit each of those
chords more than once -listen to the song!
that should do it! Send love letters, hate mail, & useless Femmes info to
