Let Him Run
Title: Let Him Run
Artist: Night Ranger
Album: Midnight Madness
Tempo = 90
12 St. Steel Guitar

Legend
L - tied note

The following transcription is my own work and was derived from countless hours of watching Jeff Watson
play this piece. The picking pattern is played by playing the first note with a down-stroke and the
remaining notes are played with an “upward sweep”. Jeff Watson refers to this as flat-picking and this
picking pattern is identical for their song “Goodbye”. All credit goes to Night Ranger.

The rest of the song can be performed by repeating these 3 sections, intro, verse, and chorus. The first
bar of the chorus is not guaranteed to be accurate in terms of the picking pattern but is definitely
played as a DMaj chord (C#Maj in reality because we are half-step down).

About the artist behind Let Him Run:

Night Ranger is an American rock band formed in San Francisco, California that gained significant popularity during the 1980s with a series of successful albums and singles.[1] The band's first five albums sold over 10 million copies worldwide, and gave the band international recognition.[1] The quintet is perhaps best known for the power ballad "Sister Christian", which peaked at #5 in early 1984.

After their success waned in the late 1980s, the band split up in 1989 and its members pursued other musical endeavours including both group and solo efforts.[2][3][4] Several members released an album without original singer Jack Blades in the mid-1990s, but the band soon re-united to release two new albums in the latter half of the decade. Despite the departure of original keyboardist Alan Fitzgerald and guitarist Jeff Watson, the band has continued to tour into 2008 and remains very popular in Asian countries including Japan.[5]
