"Permanent Vacation" by Aerosmith

(from the 1987 Geffen album PERMANENT VACATION)


riff D and A:


E --2-2-2-2---------|-------------------|--2-2-2-2-----------

B --3-3-3-3---------|----2-2-0-2-2-0-2--|--3-3-3-3-----------

G --2-2-2-2---------|----2-2-0-2-2-0-2--|--2-2-2-2-----------

D --0-0-0-0---------|----2-2-0-2-2-0-2--|--0-0-0-0-----------

A ------------------|----0-0-0-0-0-0-0--|--------------------

E -----------0-2-3--|--4----------------|-----------0-2-3----



E ---------------------------------------------

B ----2-2-0-2----------------------------------

G ----2-2-0-2----------------------------------

D ----2-2-0-2----------------------------------

A ----0-0-0-0----------------------------------

E --4------------------------------------------



It's repeated for every verse with the following change at the

end of the phrase (or you can always power chord it for that

extra "oomph"):




E --0------2--------------|--------------------

B --1------3--------------|-------2-2-0-2------

G --0------2--------------|-------2-2-0-2------

D --2------0--------------|-------2-2-0-2------

A --3---------------------|-------0-0-0-0------

E ---------------0--2--3--|--4-----------------


Yeah, yeah I got to get a-way



The bridge is another simple pattern of open chords:




E ----0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--3--3--3--3-----1-1-1---0------

B ----1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--0--0--0--0-----1-1-1---1------

G ----0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-----2-2-2---0------

D ----2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--0--0--0--0-----3-3-3---2------

A ----3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--2--2--2--2-----3-3-3---3------

E ----------------------------3--3--3--3-----1-1-1----------


I really need it really really need it San Tro-pez



This repeats four times, and the fourth time ends on an B:



E ----0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--3--3--3--3-----1-1-1----------

B ----1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--0--0--0--0-----1-1-1---4------

G ----0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-----2-2-2---4------

D ----2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--0--0--0--0-----3-3-3---4------

A ----3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--2--2--2--2-----3-3-3---2------

E ----------------------------3--3--3--3-----1-1-1----------


really need it man I got to get a -way



The solos continue over this rhythmic pattern (which may well be

a combination of the bass and rhythm guitar parts, but this is

the way I do it, and it sounds fine when played along with the



B A B D Db C B A B


E -----------------------------------------------

B ---4---2---4----7-7-7-7-7-7-6--5--4--2--4------

G ---4---2---4----7-7-7-7-7-7-6--5--4--2--4------

D ---4---2---4----7-7-7-7-7-7-6--5--4--2--4------

A ---2---0---2----5-5-5-5-5-5-4--3--2--0--2------

E -----------------------------------------------



During the second solo, with the harmonica, drop the Db and C

chords and just riff on the A, B, and D.
