Stand By Me Tabs

(ver. 2)
Stand By Me - Temptations - Ben E. King 

 Once again, I set out to find a decent tab and failed to find one. The notes I
transcribed were played on a bass guitar in the song, but it seems like many people 
(such as myself) would like to give it a go as a guitar solo. I listened to the song
about 400 times, checking my notes.. playing along.. fixing my notes, checking again.
You get the idea. I put a considerable effort into it and it sounds better than what
I've found so far. But like I said, it was played on a bass so it's not gonna sound as
low as in the song.

| / slide up
| \ slide down
| h hammer-on
| p pull-off
| ~ vibrato
| + harmonic
| x Mute note

Experiment with palm muting while you play, makes it sound closer to the song.

E|---------------| 1x

A|---4-2x-2--0---2x-2--2-0---------2-0x-0--0-4------0-4------0-4| 1x
E|-------------3-----------3x-3--3------------------------------| back to top

(repeat both segments throughout whole song.)

Listen to the actual song then give this tab a few tries. Hope you like it.
