Lenny Kravitz-

³Rock and Roll is Dead²

Transcribed by Bryan Pero(perob@willow.uml.edu)

 

Well these are just all the basic Led Zeppelinish riffs in the

song and how they fit with the lyrics. I have most of the

solo figured out and I¹ll post it later, if you really want

it.

 

Intro/Rythym figure 1.(ryth.fig.1. is intro w/out muted strum

and slide from 17th fret). This is two guitars playing

together(L.Kravitz and Craig Ross) arranged for one guitar:

 

-Palm Mute-

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

B--X-X-X----------------------------------X/17-17-17-17--

G--X-X-X----------------------------------X/17-17-17-17--

D--X-X-X----------------3-----------------X/17-17-17-17--

A--X-X-X-------------3^5--5^3-------------X/17-17-17-17--

E---------17\--3-4-5----------5^3--3-4-5-----------------

 

Before each verse Ryth.fig.1. ends with this little riff

(ending on either D or E). There are 2 guitar parts. So,

again, this comes right after you play rthy.fig.1. and are

about to go into a verse:

 

Gtr.1

A G D or E (let the D and E chords sustain)

E--------2-----4--

B--2-----3--or-5--

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

D--2--------------

A-----------------

E-----3-----------

 

Gtr.2

A G D or E (let D and E sustain)

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

B------------------

G------------------

D------------------

A--------5---or-7--

E--5--3------------

 

Fill #1 (this occurs mainly right after a verse, before

Ryth.fig.1 is played)

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

B---------------------

G---------------------

D---------3-----------

A--5~-3-5---5^3-------

E---------------5-3---

 

Rythym fig. 2 (played during solo with ryth.fig.1)

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

B-------------------------------

G------------3------------------

D--------3-5---5^3--------------

A--3-4-5-----------5-3--3-4-5---

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

 

Variation on ryth.fig.1.(towards and at end of song)

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

B---------------------------------

G---------------------------------

D-----------3---------------------

A--------3^5--5^3-----------------

E--3-4-5----------5^3--3-3-4-4-5--

 

Fill #2(after vaariation on ryth.fig 1.)

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

B---------------

G--3------------

D----5-3--------

A-------5-3-----

E-----------5---
