Radar Love
        There are actually two guitars in this song.  I've
written this tab for just one.
        The song is in E.  Most of the little riffs in
this song are played in the 2nd and 14th positions using
a pentatonic scale.
        There's some noodling around during the choruses
and during verse 3 that I haven't gotten down yet.  In
verse 3, the two guitars are doing distinctly different
things.
        Additions and corrections welcome.

About the artist behind Radar Love:

Golden Earring is a Dutch rock band, founded in 1961 in The Hague as the Golden Earrings (the 's' was dropped in 1969). They had international chart success with the songs Eight Miles High in 1969, Radar Love in 1973, Twilight Zone in 1982, and When The Lady Smiles in 1984. In their home country, they had over 40 hits and made over 30 gold and platinum albums. Current members of Golden Earring are Barry Hay (vocals, guitar, flute and saxophone, member since 1968), George Kooymans (vocals and guitar, founder of band), Rinus Gerritsen (bass and keyboard, founding member), and Cesar Zuiderwijk (drums and percussion, member since 1970). Golden Earring have sold millions of albums worldwide, and are perhaps the oldest rock band in the world that is still performing. March 13th and 14th 2009 Golden Earring celebrates its comeback in the UK with concerts in London and Ipswich after the upcoming release of their latest studio-album.
