Since I did a "cover" version of this about a month or so ago, a couple of people have asked me for the tab to this, so I've written it out for them.
INTRO RIFF - Piano adapted for guitar. I find the easiest way to play
this is by forming a D chord with my first finger across the G B & E
strings at the 2nd fret, and my second finger on the B string at the
3rd fret. Then when I need the D6, or the hammer-on at the start, I
only need to use my third finger for the G string, 4th fret. For the
A6 chord, I simply barre strings 1 2 3 & 4 at the second fret, and
for the Em, I use my first two fingers.

VERSE RIFF - This is similar to the intro riff, but you don't need
the hammer-ons for the Em chord. You can play them if you like, but
it gets a bit tricky trying to sing and play at the same time.

Cindy, ain't you noticed, that several of your friends have

(Those solos aren't note-for-note perfect, by the way, but they are
recognisable.)

I've left it too late tonight to record an MP3, I'll try and do one tomorrow - it'll make it easy to follow the strumming pattern.

:D :D :D

Many thanks for this one Vic,

Thats a lot of hard tabbing you have done for us all. Deserves more than just two replies!

I just love this song from Rod & The Faces, one of their best I think.

Many many thanks for this one mate. I have been after this for eons. An excellent song by an excellent band. Sounds great!

Wow thanks! I've been looking for a good version of this for some time. You wouldn't have Ooh La La by any chance would you :D

I haven't actually got a tab for it, but it doesn't sound too hard. However I'll bet my mate Stu - who I'm jamming with tomorrow - knows it. I'll ask him tomorrow and get back to you on that one!

:D :D :D
