/ Aerosmith / Aerosmith (1973) / Write Me A Letter guitar tab

Write Me(or 'Write Me A Letter')
from the album AEROSMITH

REVISED(11/22/96): intro riff slightly changed

I don't have all of this but I do have most of it. Correct it if you can.

   intro riff-
   
   guitar 1(distortion)
   E------------------------------------|
   B------------------------------------|
   G------------------------------------|
   D--5--3----------3--3-----2--2-------|
   A--------5-5-------------------------|
   E-------------3--------3---------3---| repeat

I find it easiest to use my thumb when playing the lower notes. 

  (pay more attention to the rhythm and the feel than to the numbers)
   E------------------------------------------------3-|
   B------------------------------------------------3-|
   G------------------------------------------------4-|
   D-5-7--5-7---5-7--5-7---7-9--7-9--3-3-x-4-4-x-5--5-|
   A-3-3--3-3---3-3--3-3---5-5--5-5--3-3-x-4-4-x-5----|
   E---------------------------------1-1-x-2-2-x-3----|

   guitar 2(right before verse)
   E---------------------|
   B----------3--0-------|
   G---0--3b--------3----|
   D---------------------|
   A---------------------|
   E---------------------|

   verse/main riff-
   E-----------------------------------------------|
   B-----------------------------------------------|
   G-----------------------------------------------|
   D-------------------------5-5-7-5-7--5-5-7-5-7--|
   A---5-5-7-5-7--5-5-7-5-7--3-3-3-3-3--3-3-3-3-3--|
   E---3-3-3-3-3--3-3-3-3-3------------------------|

   E------------------------|
   B------------------------|
   G------------------------|
   D--7-7-9-7-9--3---4---5--|
   A--5-5-5-5-5--3---4---5--|
   E-------------1---2---3--| continue similar pattern

   Then there are a bunch of chords that I don't feel like figuring out right now
   and this lick right before the harmonica solo:

   E---3------------------------------|
   B---3------------------------------|
   G---4---------------------------3--|
   D---5---------------------3--5-----|
   A---5------------3--4--5-----------|
   E---3------3--6--------------------|

   After the harmonica solo the rhythm guitar goes into this riff:

   E----------------------------------------------------|
   B----------------------------------------------------|
   G-------------------------------5-0-7-5----7-5-------|
   D---5---7-7-----5---7-7----5----5-0-7-5--0-7-5-0-5-7-|
   A-0-5-0-7-7---0-5-0-7-7--0-5-0--3-0-5-3--0-5-3-0-5-7-|
   E-0-3-0-5-5---0-3-0-5-5--0-3-0-------------------3-5-|

   During this part, the other guitar plays something like this:
   E------------------------------------|
   B------------------------------------|
   G------------------------------------|
   D--------7-------------7-------------|
   A------------------------------------|
   E------------------------------------|

   Follow the tab here loosely.Just play it in rhythm and it should sound    alright:
   (Palm mute)
           bend it when it sounds appropriate
   E-----------------------------------------|
   B-----------------------------------------|
   G---5-7-7b-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7r-5-|
   D-7---------------------------------------|
   A-----------------------------------------|
   E-----------------------------------------|

   E----------------------------|
   B----------------------------|
   G-5-7-5--5-7-5-5-7-5-5-------|
   D----------------------5-7---|
   A----------------------------|
   E----------------------------|

That's all I have right now but it should get you through most of the song. As always, send all comments,questions,additions and corrections to meunier.1@osu.edu  Have fun with it.

Symbols used:
   x = percussive sound
   b = bend
   r = release
