Love In An Elevator

Steven Tyler & Joe Perry

 

intro riff

 

Guts 1 & 2

 

*Random P.M. first 3 times, then let it sing on the last one!!

e |

b |

G |

D |

A |

E | 12b--9--11--8--10--7 ----- *4--6--4--5--4--7--0

 

then

Gut2 (JoeP)

e |

b |

G | 7

D | 7 7

A | 7 (make up a fill in "B") 5 (grab a fill in "E"!)

E | 5 5

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

Verse Riff A

 

We play it like this and it sounds fine!

 

 

Gut 1

 

E5 D5/F# G~~ C5

 

e |

b |

G | 5

D | 5

A | 3

E | 0--2--0--2h3--3~~~~~~~~~~

 

Gut 2

 

e |

b |

G |

D | 5

A | 5 5 5 5 5~~~~ 3

E | 0 2 0 2/3 3~~~~

 

 

then the next section goes for gut 2.... (Gut 1 plays bass notes again like before, except for open G chord at end, play strings E,A,D,G!!...)

 

Gut 2

 

e | 3

b | 3

G | 0

D | 7 7 7 7 7 0

A | 0 4 0 4/5~~ 5 x

E | 3

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Then we get the chorus, all in "B"

 

We play it with gut 1 chugging on a staccatto-ey kinda B(vii) chord, throwing in the 7ths just like on the CD. It just gives it a "funkier" feel..

 

Gut1

 

e | x x 7 7 7 |

b | x x 7 7 7 |

G | x x 7 |

D | 9 9 9 x | 9 9

A | 9 9 9 x | 9 0

E | 7 7 7 x | 7

Love in an Elevator..... .....down

 

the end of chorus for Gut 1 is just a skip back through B-Bb-A. Gut 2, is a little more complex than this though.

 

For Gut2, sorta skip into B6's occassionally to get that funk happening!

 

Gut2

 

B5 B6 etc........

 

e | |

b | 4 |

G | 4 |

D | 4 4 6 | 6 4 4

A | 2 2 2 (continue on like that) | 2 2 0

E | |

 

Love in an..... go - ing down.....

 

*don't pick

e | |

b | |

G | 2 |

D | 4 3 2 |

A | 2 1 0 | */12\

E | | */12 \ (<<<<That's just a thing I do!!!!)

 

up side down... (love that alternate lyric!)

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Then it continues on for much the same, until the end of the next chorus

 

Gut1

E5 A5 D5/A

 

e | 0

b | 0 3

G | x 2 2

D | 2 2 0

A | 2 0 0

E | 0

 

 

Gut2 (call and response kinda thing...)

 

e | 0 0

b | 0 0

G | x

D | 2

A | 2

E | 0 etc. then as for Gut1 in "One more time honey...)

 

In the air,

 

 

Then both guitars play a small chorus again like gut 2's original part, and then go into that mammoth solo!

 

Brad Whitford plays the first part of the solo, while Joe Perry plays this rythym bit directly after Steven's last "goin' down~~~~" at 1min.28: Perry doesn't start soloing until the ascending riff listed further below.

 

Gut2

 

A5 D5/A

e |

b | 3

G | 2 2

D | 2 0

A | 0 0

E | then intro riff....

 

Play this entire section 3.5 times then hit an E5 chug w/Gut1 for a bit before Gut2 drops out entirely. Gut 1 picks up with this ascending riff that makes up the rythym for the rest of the solo. Make sure you ad-lib heaps, throw in lots of Low E slides!

 

Gut1

 

e |

b |

G |

D |

A |

E | 0--0--0--0--4p0--0--5p0--0--6p0--7--0--9--10~~~~~~

 

 

If you listen, there is also an occasional rythmic change, that's just Brad playing an open D5/A. The lead-in back to the chorus is just A5 followed by D5/A

 

I'm not gonna tab the solos note-for-note coz that's not the way I do it. As a guide, though try stay between frets 12 and 15 and just feel the music, baby!! It's a great song to ad-lib over though, so just go for it.

 

All other areas are fairly straightforward, beware of the outro though, in parts it uses a full B5 - A5 - D5/A chorus style voicing, but this gradually drops out toward the end.
