Leave You Behind

All Hands on the Bad One, "Leave You Behind"

It's not one of my favorites but it's good enough. It's an "up" song, toward the bubblegum end of the scale. It's got a pleasant main riff. A different tuning my make it easier but it's good exercise for the fingers. Riff 2 is remarkably free of the standard S-K eighth note riffing. I always admire the bridges and Riff 3 is no exception. When you separate the guitar parts, you can see how clever they are - big sound with simple components. It has the ooh-aah-ooh singing that I can't resist.

I sure hope I've done this well enough for you to figure out.

  • Quarter note = 132 or so.
  • Standard tuning.
  • Tabbed where it felt good on the fretboard but there are alternatives.
