                Band Stray Cats
Tuning: Standard

Back with another one. I think it's official that The Stray Cats
is my favorite band of all time. I have other rockabilly/psycho tabs
lined up but I just keep going back to the Cats and keep having that urge
to learn every damn song they put out even if it means putting a 
hold on other songs I've been wanting to transcribe 
for years now. We got another flawless cover of 
Ricky Nelsons original. Composed with 2 excellent solos that 
have some of my favorite solo endings that Brian has done. 
Sorry, if there is a lot of detail. I wanted to get the little 
nuances of the songs since my ear is improving a little more each time. 
But of course, you don't have to play it the way Brian does. 
You can just play the basic progression that I will list for you. 
Strums are not exact. Lets go!!!
