Welcome to the Double Dare UK tabs pages. We are actually a live pub band performing around Horsham, Sussex, but I have published some of my 600 song tabs on this site for sharing amongst the music community. If you want to copy tabs, simply cut and paste the words off the page and straight into WORD or NOTEPAD. I have worked carefully on many of these TABS to make sure that the chords are shown directly over the words, so the chord change corresponds exactly to the place where you are singing. That means you can play the whole songs straight off the paperwork without having to think about the structure of the song at all. I hope you enjoy these CHORDS, and please check out the many more we have on the SONGS page. Check out my band on the rest of the website too if you are interested...

        There are two riffs, #1 corresponds to Ian's vocals.

                           #2 corresponds to the "background" (dunno the English word)


        You'll have to figure out the rhythm for yourselves, the best source to aid is

         imo the 2nd JD Peel Session.


        When playing alone, switch from one riff to another (assuming that you are not

         capable of playing two guitars simultaneously :)
