 Song: Long Live Rock 'n' Roll

 Artist: Rainbow

 Album: Long Live Rock 'n' Roll

 Written by: Ritchie Blackmore and Ronny James Dio



 I wan to thank the one who posted the first transcription

 of this song. I wrote mine based on theirs.This is about 1 year's

 work.I've corrected it several times during this period, always

 finding new details. This is, I think, my final version for the

 song. I tried to get as close to the record as my IbanezRG70DX

 alowed me. There still might be mistakes, especially at the
measures.It's the first time I try to add measures to my tab and I'm
not too good at it... so use them to get an idea but don't count too much
on them... As for the rest of the transcription, it might be not 100%
accurate but it sounds ok.

 You can contact me at jack_ohara_097@hotmail.com if you need.

 Verse



 The verse starts with arppegiating the G5 powerchord. Use the

 index that keeps the 6th string on fret 3 to mute the 5th string.

 Then the verse switches to the G minor pentatonic scale (also

 used for the bridge).

 Refrain



 The fret numbers without spacing should be read obviously as

 single ones.This is the F5 powerchord. Then we move through F#5

 to G5. Note that this is the same as the intro. I have only

 replaced the open-string D5 with fret hand muting. The whole

 refrain reflects a G minor pentatonic aproach (same as the verse

 and the bridge).

 Play Intro, Bridge, Verse, Refrain, Bridge, Verse, Refrain,

 Bridge and then move to the solo.



 Solo



 While guitar 2 kicks in for the lead, guitar 1 plays similarly

 to the verse riff. Here I've tried to tab them both.



 Note that wherever you see sequences of fret numbers without

 spaces you should read them as groups of 2-digit numbers. This

 is,naturally, apart from the end, where the refrain starts.



 We start with a chromatic climax before Gtr1 falls back to the

 verse riff and Gtr2 moves to the main body of the solo.

 If you have to play the song on your own (without second guitar)

 simply play after the bridge the part of Gtr2. At the end of

 the solo ignore the finger vibrato sustain. Just play the 20 and

 then jump directly back to Gtr1 part for the refrain.



 The song then goes on with the bridge,verse and refrain.

 Then as outro the refrain pattern is used. Play the refrain

 another 5 times and the last time fade out. Also at the 2nd and

 4th time play only the downstrokes of F5.



 Here is an explanation to the symbols I used:

 Bw bend whole step (whole tone, equivalent to 2 frets up)

 Bh " half " (semitone, equivalent to 1 fret up)

 pB pre-bend (bend as indicated before picking)

 r release bend

 = shows the length of the bend or of the "let ring"

 / \ legato slide. slide up or down from the fret indicated

 on the left to the one on the right without picking the one

 on the right.

 ~ finger vibrato

 X fret hand muted string. touch it without holding it down to

 some fret. the result is a choked sound without clean pitch.
