A Shadow And A Prayer
And I'm back, with a band that ISN'T Hit The Lights this time, this is Goodnight Nurse.
offense to the other guy who posted, but his tab wasn't spot-on accurate, so I sat here
my Squier and tabbed it out for everyone who wanted to learn the song. I'm 99.99% sure
this tab's accuracy. The only thing, was some inaudible guitar arpeggios maybe in verse
but that doesn't matter, the rest is 100% correct. The pre-verse might be played on a
string but higher on the fingerboard, but it's the same notes. You can switch around.
Nurse tunes to Drop D, occasionally standard MAYBE, but I'm not certain of that so while 
low E is not used, it's still a good idea to tune to drop d, just in case you
play another Goodnight Nurse song afterwards, but it doesn't matter.

x2
Pre-Verse
Chorus
Chorus
Outro: Again, the outro is composed og the ontro played over and over while the singers
various things about screaming and tonight, and also the verse being recited can be
in the background.

And that's that... I don't know if I need a legend due to the lack of many guitar tricks
whatever.

Legend:
h=Hammer On
~=Sustain; let ring
.=Palm mute

And just in case you didn't know, the x's mean Times, like x16 is play that 16 times.
I apologize for my rants at the beginning of my tabs.
ROCK ON.
