At this point, Steven starts in with the harmonica and Joe returns to the
beginning and plays a variation of what is tabbed here. The lyrics are
basically the same as in the "Permanent Vacation" sleeve with the exception
of Steven's notable substitution of "talkin' bout the first time we got
laid" for "talkin' bout the money that I ain't made" and "stand on the rock
Joe Perry done stood" for "stand on the rock that Moses stood." When Steven
starts with "If I could I surely would..." for the first time, the guitar
plays what sounds like a variation of this riff:

You'll have to figure out the timing for this and the first part by
listening to the music. I taped the Unplugged special back in 1990 but I
didn't have it with me when I transcribed this. I may add/change something
after I watch the tape. In the meantime, you're welcome to do the same.
Write me with any questions.

This next part is very similar to(if not exactly like) what Brad plays on the
unplugged version of the song. On the PV album it's played on an electric 
guitar:

At the end of this riff, just move the second chord up the neck.

I can't quite make out what Joe plays for this part yet. When I figure it out,
I'll post it. In the meantime, if you know it, you're more than welcome to 
send it to me to post.

Before the next riff, both guitars play this(w/distortion):

   A--7-7-9-7--7-7-9-7--7-7-9-7-7--|

   D--0h7-------0h5--------0h4------0------------|
   A-----------------------------------0h5--0h5--|
   D---------------------------------------------|

This next part I also based on Brad's unplugged performance. I think Joe plays
similar chords. Correct me if I'm wrong.

About the artist behind Hangman Jury Tab:

Aerosmith is an American hard rock band, sometimes referred to as "The Bad Boys from Boston"[2] and "America's Greatest Rock and Roll Band."[3][4][5][6] Their unique style, rooted in blues-based hard rock,[1][7] has also come to incorporate elements of pop,[8] heavy metal,[1] glam,[9] and R&B,[10] which has inspired legions of rock artists that came after them.[11] The band was formed in Boston, Massachusetts in 1970. Guitarist Joe Perry and bassist Tom Hamilton, originally in a band together called the Jam Band, met up with singer Steven Tyler, drummer Joey Kramer, and guitarist Ray Tabano, and formed Aerosmith. By 1971, Tabano was replaced by Brad Whitford, and the band began developing a following in Boston.

They were signed to Columbia Records in 1972 and released a string of multi-platinum albums, beginning with their 1973 eponymous debut album. In 1975, the band broke into the mainstream with the album Toys in the Attic, and their 1976 follow-up Rocks cemented their status as hard rock superstars.[12] By the end of the 1970s, they were among the most popular hard rock bands in the world and developed a loyal following of fans, often referred to as the "Blue Army".[13] However, drug addiction and internal conflict took its toll on the band, which resulted in the departures of Perry and Whitford, in 1979 and 1981 respectively. They were replaced by Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay.[7] The band did not fare well between 1980 and 1984, releasing a lone album, Rock in a Hard Place, which only went gold, failing to match the successes of their previous efforts.

Although Perry and Whitford returned in 1984 and the band signed a new deal with Geffen Records, it wasn't until the band sobered up and released 1987's Permanent Vacation that they regained the level of popularity they had experienced in the 1970s.[14] Throughout the late 1980s and 1990s, the band scored several hits and won numerous awards for music from the multi-platinum albums Pump (1989), Get a Grip (1993), and Nine Lives (1997). Their comeback has been described as one of the most remarkable and spectacular in rock 'n' roll history.[1][7] After 38 years of performing, the band continues to tour and record music.

Aerosmith is the bestselling American hard rock band of all time,[15] having sold 150 million albums worldwide,[16] including 66.5 million albums in the United States alone.[15] They also hold the record for the most gold and multi-platinum albums by an American group. The band has scored 21 Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, nine #1 Mainstream Rock hits, four Grammy Awards, and ten MTV Video Music Awards. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001, and in 2005 they were ranked #57 in Rolling Stone magazine's 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[17]
