Avenida Revolution Tab - Chickenfoot






Chickenfoot - "Avenida Revolution"
From Self-Titled Debut Album
Eb Tuning
tabbed by jjhand


This might be the hardest Chickenfoot song, due to all the different
endings to the main riff and the very difficult solo. I can't play it
all, I had to slow it down and put down my best guess on the notes!
Please rate and comment.


Crazy Intro - Move up the neck with tapping. Its similar to this:
