                             LADY WRITER - Dire Straits
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: Standard

      This is my first tab, but I hope you like it.  I looked all over the Internet for
think this sounds right, but experiment with it.  (I use some of my own improvised 
and pull-offs; you can probably tell where...)

     Rhythm Chords: Solos - Use these chords for rhythm when the solos are playing, only
I think that they provide a little more soul and sound because you can just slide from
to another right up the neck.
     A             B            C#m           G#m           Am*
e|---5---|    e|---7---|    e|---9---|    e|---4---|    e|---5---|
B|---5---|    B|---7---|    B|---9---|    B|---4---|    B|---5---|
G|---6---|    G|---8---|    G|---9---|    G|---4---|    G|---5---|
D|---7---|    D|---9---|    D|---11--|    D|---6---|    D|---7---|
A|---7---|    A|---9---|    A|---11--|    A|---6---|    A|---7---|
E|---5---|    E|---7---|    E|---9---|    E|---4---|    E|---5---|

     Rhythm Chords: Verses/Chorus - Use these chords for rhythm when the rest of the
is playing with the chorus and the verses.  They provide a great sound, but not too great
the lead guitarist will be playing these chords as well between the licks.  Lead guitar 
also play these chords.
     A             B            C#m           F#m            E
e|---0---|    e|---2---|    e|---4---|    e|---2---|    e|---7---|
B|---2---|    B|---4---|    B|---5---|    B|---2---|    B|---9---|
G|---2---|    G|---4---|    G|---6---|    G|---2---|    G|---9---|
D|---2---|    D|---4---|    D|---6---|    D|---4---|    D|---9---|
A|---0---|    A|---2---|    A|---4---|    A|---4---|    A|---7---|
E|---x---|    E|---x---|    E|---x---|    E|---2---|    E|---x---|

Always use the E, G#m, and F#m chords as barre chords because it seems easier, but for
bridge before the first solo (E,B,G#m,F#m) use the "solo B" because you're already on the
and 9th frets for the E, so just make the B from that. * The Am is for the rhythm on the verses.

Key:
/   slide up
\   slide down
h   hammer-on
p   pull-off
b   bend (hb  hold bend)
rb  release bend (rhb release held bend)
~   vibrato
()  pre-bend
