Guns n' roses: Estranged  (from Use your illusions II)
Orig tabbed by: Tim Ruffer,

As with most Guns N Roses songs, this is played very awkwardly.  The reason 
for this is that they tune their guitars half a step down.  So if you have a 
piano one semi-tone too high (you play a c and the sound is a b) like me 
then the tunes are much more simple.  However I've written this out for a 
regular piano:

Chords used in the song:

For the first bar, the note is: F(#). For the second bar, it is a. At the beginning of the third bar, the trill note is d with the notes in the middle of the bar both being b. The trill note at the beginning of the fourth bar is also a b. This is the long bit with the chords. I can't be bothered to write out the rhythm, so I'll just write the name of the chord and how to play it. Each chord lasts for one bar: [b5]4|F| [d5]4|a| [b5]4|F| [d5]4|a     3|b|     4|d|      3|b|      4|d     2|F|     2|a|      2|F|      2|a     1|b|     2|d|      1|b|      2|d [b5]4|b| (yes, that [d5]4|a [AA

] Anymore. And what for? I'll write in the solos at the end. But the chord sequence through the solo, goes something like this (all chords last for one bar): B, G#m, F#, E, Eaug6, B, F#, E, Eaug6, B. [BB

You can't really do it on piano, but the nearest you can get, is to play chords [BB
] and [AA
], and play around with the notes F#, G#, C#, and B. It does that for 7 bars, then starts the second main end solo which is also at the end. Rather than doing chords as backing I play octaves of these notes in the following sequence: 2|b-b-b-b-|b-b-b-b-|F-F-F-F-|e-e-e-e-|b-b-F-F-| 1|b-b-b-b-|b-b-b-b-|F-F-F-F-|e-e-e-e-|b-b-F-F-| 2|b-b-b-b3|e-e-e-e2|a-a-a-a-|a-a-a-a-|b-b-b-b-| 1|b-b-b-b2|e-e-e-e1|a-a-a-a-|a-a-a-a-|b-b-b-b-| 2|b-b-b-b-| 1|b-b-b-b-| [BB

]            [F#F#
]   [EE
] This time ' oh this time,            [EE
]. [E5], [C#5], [E5] Without you. [B5], [A#5], [G#5]          [F#5]             [EE
]   [F#5]                  I knew the storm was getting closer, [G#5]        [F#5]              [EE
] [F#5]    And all my friends said I was high, [G#5]       [F#5]            [EE
]        [F#5]    But everything We've ever known's here, [G#5]      [F#5]        [EE
]    I never wanted it to die. I'm not sure about the ending chords, but they can't be too hard to work out. The very last chord is a B. Now for the solos. Both of the solos are very tricky and hard to get your fingers around. I'm still grasping them, but I know how they go: Solo 1 (after 'you don't walk so proud, anymore, and what for?'): 5|-------------C--|C------------C--|F-D---C----C----| 4|b---------FGb-bG|----b-b---FGb-bG|----------b-AbAG| 6|----------------|----------------|-------------C--| 5|-------------Ce-|eFaFaFGbbbabbaba|b---------FGb-bG| 4|FGeFCe--FeFGb---|----------------|----------------| 6|C------------C--|CD--F-------C-Fe|-eD-eDeCDCDDCC--| 5|--b-b-----FGb-bG|------b---b-----|--------------bG| 6|D---------------CDeD|F------e|D-------| 5|--------------------|--------|--------|                                    When I find all of the reasons. . . Solo 2: After 7 bars of the dolphin style sound which I wrote above, it comes to this solo. There a lot of demi-semi-quavers in this solo and I've decided that it would be easier to read if they weren't added in. But they are quite easy to work out: 6|----------------|F--aF------aFed-|F--aF------aFed-| 5|dC--dC-d-C---C--|---------------b|---------------b| 4|--bG--b---bGb-bG|----------------|----------------| 6|d--C------------|----------------|----------------| 5|----b-----a-F-ed|----eF--------d-|----F-aed---efed| 4|----------------|b-------F---ab--|b---------------| 6|--------Cd-CdeFe|aeFaeFeFFed-d---|----------------| 5|eFabbFab--b-----|-----------b--ba|bbaFaFeded--Fede| 4|----------------|----------------|----------ba----| 5|F-------|
