Bring Back The Spark
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Bring Back The Spark - Be Bop Deluxe
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: axe victim
Email: see my 'Ultimate Guitar' membership profile

Another popular song from the 'Modern Music' Album.
I have tabbed a basic chord arrangement, but not the 
big guitar solo yet.  I think you can get it somewhere 
on the 'net anyway, but maybe I'll get around to it 
myself one day. Love the 'Duane Eddy' style guitar solo
at the beginning.

Tuning: EADGBe

|^ quarter tone bend
