Back in Black Guitar Tablature
Song: Back in Black
Artist: Ac Dc
Album: Back in Black
Tabber: Gregory McCubbin

This song is one of the many greats by AcDc and is a great song to play. I am pretty
sure this tab is correct, I could always be wrong but I dont think so. Anyway, it 
is in standard tuning, E-a-d-g-b-e. I have found this to be the best amp setting
for this song: turn the the distortion all the way up,low set at about 9 o'clock,
the middle at about 5 o'clock,and the high at about 5 o'clock.This should give you 
a pretty good setting, especially if you have humbuckers. If you are playing rythm,
you are best off using the same setting, but you might try using your neck pickup
or both neck and bridge. The lead has a more high piched pinchy sound(especially on 
solos) and the rythm has a pretty solid sound with alot of middle.

SOLO
This part will be comming soon. I am currently listening over and over trying
to figure out this part. Until i tab it out for ya, you might want to make 
up some stuff for this. Angus, the lead guitarist, uses the E minor pentatonic
scales for this and most all of their songs along with some fast fingering and 
mean vibratos.

-BRIDGE-
This is played together as well...
