                Backdoor Love Affair (ZZ Top)


This tab is my own version of this song and is not intended to be balls-on to the 
original recording or any live versions.

Although they may be inaccurate, the beat marks aided me in laying this tab out, 
so they may help you as well.
Listen to the song for correct timing and note durations.

Tuning: Standard
