Hello,

Chords or tabs about CR are pretty rare.
The french magazine Guitar Part edited a complete score of the Road to Hell in the n°166 (january 2008).
I'll try to scan it for the forum.

Well they are. His songs are very hard to "decode" exactly. You can make it with the chords, it's easier but what is up with the solos...? Though since I'm a rhythm guitarist I don't take too much care :lol: :lol: I let soloists have dreamless nights on it :lol: :lol:

Hi everybody,

I did scan the Tab a few days ago, but it was too big to put it on a post. Then, I did send it to Bart in a Zip file (containing jpeg pictures to print) and did ask him to find a place on the site for this kind of stuff.

Wait and see...

Hey guys (girls),

It'd be great to have some CR tabs here on the site since, as we discussed before, they are pretty hard to find.
So if you have some spare time to scan and post them I'd be delighted for sure.
Many thanks in advance,
Chris

I would be infinitely grateful to have tab or chords for Texas from The Road to Hell album. They are impossible to find. I've taught myself the slide solo but that was a total freak accident. Wouldn't mind knowing the rhythm parts too. Thanks in advance. Will probably post a video lesson on youtube once I have it mastered.

Hi Guys

Just wondering do any of you guys know the guitar chords for 'Wired to the Moon'? Cant seem to find them anywhere online, can find 'Ace of Hearts' and 'Touche D'amour' from the wired to the moon album pretty easily but 'Wired to the Moon' is the song I'm really looking for. I've loved this song since before I could walk, remember my Dad used to always play it in the car, would absolutely love to be able to play it. If anybody could help me out that would be amazing!

Cheers
Rob
