PostSubject: Setzer/ Stray Cats Tab   Mon Aug 11, 2008 9:19 pm

Is there any website that contains the tab to Brian's solo songs as well as Stray Cats?
Rhythms come fairly easy to me, but the solos are...."somethin' else" !

Thanks.

Okay, then does anyone out there have any tabs they'd like to share? Maybe stuff figured out on your own?

Bobby's Back

is the one I'm really after.

Thanks, folks!

Hey Danny.

I bought a Brian Setzer music book from Amazon which has tabs for some of his solos.

Yep. Nick indicated around the end of June that it was coming down (and it did).

Why did they take their stuff down?

I'd appreciate "Bobby's Back"!!

Thanks.

Anyone who posts tabs of other artists' work could face serious legal issues, not necessarily from the artist, but from the companies who claim some sort of publishing rights. I have no idea if Nick was hassled by anyone, but if the website sits out there long enough, it's just a matter of time before someone in a legal department tries to cause a problem. It's just too big of a liability. Then there are the hassles of spambots and other troublemakers attacking websites and the people who visit them. Keeping a website up can be a lot of work, and we were lucky to have Nikko's efforts available as long as we did. That site "left the building" sometime in early July.

And Bobby's Back was not one of the tabs available on that site.

Perhaps someone with a gifted ear (or gifted transcription software) will put that solo up in a random thread here someday.

Thanks for the info. KNIFE is one of my all time favourite albums, Setzer or not.
I hear the chords differently, though, but I will try what you have. I play the song as (intro/verses):

Bb, Dm, Gm, Cm, F

I've used TRANSCRIBE for solos, but it's not always 100% accurate, at least not for me!

theres nothing illegal about what nick was doing. it was all obviously hand done by him personally he wasnt stealing from any books or anything so it's pretty legit. just a shame eh didnt keep it around

I happen to share your opinion, but many a tab site operating much in the same non-profit, public service situation has been shut down after legal action was threatened. I'm not sure how the courts have ruled in this situation, but I'm guessing most tabbers don't want to encounter the legal costs to find out. I hope Nick was never harrassed in this way, and I thank him for his efforts. It was great while it lasted.

Why did the site go away? Because the owner/creator of the site deemed it so. Much like the cancellation of the Xmas tour, that may be the only "official" answer you get. The "Because I said so" argument never works with fans. Or 5-year-olds. But sometimes, it'll have to do.

I can't claim to have played this one, but I gave it a listen now, and I think I can give ye the basic progression. It's not as complicated as the BSO stuff, but it's a cool little song. I'll start a new post with the progression in the Guitar section.

I just figured out three guys I think. Theres no real guitar lick it just opens with a finger pickin E then it goes

E D B A
I Get up and the sun goes round so run down but I head into town

and the repeats with each verse and the chorus goes something like


D A E
Father son and the holy ghost, they're three guys I like the most

D A E
Everybody say a prayer each day, a word for Jesus lights the way


Then finally

A E A E
Everybody's got a secret they did, everybody's got a skeleton closet


Thats as much as I figured out, it's fun as hell to play.

Did they have the tab for SHOTGUN BABY from the "Let's Go Faster" album?

That's such a happy-go-lucky tune!

Does someone have the tab for "Glad all over" from Rockabilly Riot? I've been honing my fingerpicking and I'd like to take a stab at it.
