SUMMER NIGHTS   from   GREASE
=============================
(John Travolta/Olivia Newton-John & Cast)

Song notes:
-----------
  During whole song there is one background guitar, which plays riffs.
  I haven't tried to make it out, I've just made out tab-guitar.
  But during INTRO and LAST VERSE is this guitar silent, so in this parts
  riff-guitar appears.
  If you'll interested in riffs, look below, there are riffs but they're bad.
  They're just made to fit the song.

Well what's above should be correct.
And now some BAD RIFFS. Most of this below is BAD, but some might be (and is)
good. Play this below, if have unused spare guitar. There's only little
slight appearence of rythm in this below. Make out rythm using words.
