Subject: CRD: Cheatin' Woman -- Lynyrd Skynyrd

Ronnie VanZant - Gary Rossington - Al Kooper

From Lynyrd Skynyrd Nothin' Fancy Album

Tabbed by David Moser creole_cat@yahoo.com



Note: The rhythm is played on electric piano and the Em chords are

 arpeggiated during the verses. Listen to the song and you

 should be able to figure it out.

The solo is in Em pentatonic, very slow with those jabs and stabs

Lynyrd Skynyrd is famous for.

The outro is a dual guitar lead up at the 12th, 15th & 17th frets.

Outro

--------------------------------------------------------------------

I think this pretty close. There are a lot of very intricate nuances

to this song and one may have to improvise some of the fills and the

lead parts. It is a great song by a great band. Improvements are

welcomed and encouraged.
