Lenny Kravitz- 
³Rock and Roll is Dead²
Transcribed by Bryan Pero(perob@willow.uml.edu)

Well these are just all the basic Led Zeppelinish riffs in the 
song and how they fit with the lyrics.  I have most of the 
solo figured out and Iıll post it later, if you really want 
it.  

Intro/Rythym figure 1.(ryth.fig.1. is intro w/out muted strum 
and slide from 17th fret).  This is two guitars playing 
together(L.Kravitz and Craig Ross) arranged for one guitar:
   
-Palm Mute-
E--------------------------------------------------------
B--X-X-X----------------------------------X/17-17-17-17--
G--X-X-X----------------------------------X/17-17-17-17--
D--X-X-X----------------3-----------------X/17-17-17-17--
A--X-X-X-------------3^5--5^3-------------X/17-17-17-17--
E---------17\--3-4-5----------5^3--3-4-5-----------------

Before each verse Ryth.fig.1. ends with this little riff 
(ending on either D or E).  There are 2 guitar parts.  So, 
again, this comes right after you play rthy.fig.1. and are 
about to go into a verse:

Gtr.1
   A  G  D  or E  (let the D and E chords sustain)
E--------2-----4--
B--2-----3--or-5--
G--2-----2-----4--
D--2--------------
A-----------------
E-----3-----------

Gtr.2
  A   G  D   or E (let D and E sustain)
E------------------
B------------------
G------------------
D------------------
A--------5---or-7--
E--5--3------------

Fill #1 (this occurs mainly right after a verse, before 
Ryth.fig.1 is played)
E---------------------
B---------------------
G---------------------
D---------3-----------
A--5~-3-5---5^3-------
E---------------5-3---

Rythym fig. 2 (played during solo with ryth.fig.1)
E-------------------------------
B-------------------------------
G------------3------------------
D--------3-5---5^3--------------
A--3-4-5-----------5-3--3-4-5---
E-------------------------------

Variation on ryth.fig.1.(towards and at end of song)
E---------------------------------
B---------------------------------
G---------------------------------
D-----------3---------------------
A--------3^5--5^3-----------------
E--3-4-5----------5^3--3-3-4-4-5--

Fill #2(after vaariation on ryth.fig 1.)
E---------------
B---------------
G--3------------
D----5-3--------
A-------5-3-----
E-----------5---
