Aerosmith - Sweet Emotion

(S. Tyler, T. Hamilton)

>From the album Toys In The Attic, 1975

Bassist: Tom Hamilton


Tabbed by: Austin Lewis (


This tab makes a few corrections and includes

additions to the tab originally done by Steve





Riff One:

Intro / Chorus / Outro Riff:






These notes are "12"s, "11"s, and "14"s. They

are not "1"s, "2"s, and "4"s. That's kind of

obvious but I thought I'd point it out just in

case, to avoid any confusion.

You don't have to play the first A (12th fret on

the A string) in the second half of the riff, I

added it in. I think it sounds better with it

added, but it's up to you.



Riff Two:

Verse Riff:






This isn't exact, but it's close. Personally, I

play something that sounds similar, which I have

tabbed out below:


Verse Riff Variation:







Riff Three:

Break Riff:






This repeats a few times, and then there's a

different ending the last time you play it.

Here it is:







And then the very last time you play this riff,

before the guitar solo outro, you don't play

the second half. Instead, you hold the F# (2nd

fret on the E string, the last note you played

in the first half of the riff) and let it ring.
