                Band: Stray Cats
Tuning: Standard

Alright guys. Let me tell you a little something about
this guy, Brian Setzer....... You know what? I can't tell you.
You're just gonna have to find out by playing one of his songs.
The man is a genius and learning his songs are not for the faint of
heart. Nobody has had the BALLS to tab this out yet. You can call
me courageous or call me stupid but, I'm very proud of what I learned.
Maybe I'm in over my head by tabbing this? I know the damn notes
but still can't play NOWHERE near the speed Setzer plays it in the
original recording. Having said that, this song is actually very
fun to play because of all the cr*p that's going on and it's very
rewarding to know how to play it. I plan on tabbing more Stray
Cats  if my heart allows me to. =). Alright guys, strums
not exact. Let's go and, may God have mercy on all of our souls...

*Seems like he plays out of his neck pickup****
