Write Me(or 'Write Me A Letter')
from the album AEROSMITH

REVISED(11/22/96): intro riff slightly changed

I don't have all of this but I do have most of it. Correct it if you can.

intro riff-

guitar 1(distortion)
E------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------|
G------------------------------------|
D--5--3----------3--3-----2--2-------|
A--------5-5-------------------------|
E-------------3--------3---------3---| repeat

I find it easiest to use my thumb when playing the lower notes.

(pay more attention to the rhythm and the feel than to the numbers)
E------------------------------------------------3-|
B------------------------------------------------3-|
G------------------------------------------------4-|
D-5-7--5-7---5-7--5-7---7-9--7-9--3-3-x-4-4-x-5--5-|
A-3-3--3-3---3-3--3-3---5-5--5-5--3-3-x-4-4-x-5----|
E---------------------------------1-1-x-2-2-x-3----|

guitar 2(right before verse)
E---------------------|
B----------3--0-------|
G---0--3b--------3----|
D---------------------|
A---------------------|
E---------------------|

verse/main riff-
E-----------------------------------------------|
B-----------------------------------------------|
G-----------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------5-5-7-5-7--5-5-7-5-7--|
A---5-5-7-5-7--5-5-7-5-7--3-3-3-3-3--3-3-3-3-3--|
E---3-3-3-3-3--3-3-3-3-3------------------------|

E------------------------|
B------------------------|
G------------------------|
D--7-7-9-7-9--3---4---5--|
A--5-5-5-5-5--3---4---5--|
E-------------1---2---3--| continue similar pattern

Then there are a bunch of chords that I don't feel like figuring out right now
and this lick right before the harmonica solo:

E---3------------------------------|
B---3------------------------------|
G---4---------------------------3--|
D---5---------------------3--5-----|
A---5------------3--4--5-----------|
E---3------3--6--------------------|

After the harmonica solo the rhythm guitar goes into this riff:

E----------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------|
G-------------------------------5-0-7-5----7-5-------|
D---5---7-7-----5---7-7----5----5-0-7-5--0-7-5-0-5-7-|
A-0-5-0-7-7---0-5-0-7-7--0-5-0--3-0-5-3--0-5-3-0-5-7-|
E-0-3-0-5-5---0-3-0-5-5--0-3-0-------------------3-5-|

During this part, the other guitar plays something like this:
E------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------|
G------------------------------------|
D--------7-------------7-------------|
A------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------|

Follow the tab here loosely.Just play it in rhythm and it should sound alright:
(Palm mute)
bend it when it sounds appropriate
E-----------------------------------------|
B-----------------------------------------|
G---5-7-7b-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7r-5-|
D-7---------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------|

E----------------------------|
B----------------------------|
G-5-7-5--5-7-5-5-7-5-5-------|
D----------------------5-7---|
A----------------------------|
E----------------------------|

That's all I have right now but it should get you through most of the song. As always, send all
and corrections to meunier.1@osu.edu Have fun with it.

Symbols used:
x = percussive sound
