Route 66

	   By Bobby Troup / Chuck Berry / Rolling Stones 

Originally a jazz tune about the mythic US route written by Bobby Troup  
after WWII, it was turned into Rock'n'Roll by Chuck Berry in the fifties and  
covered by many among which the Rolling Stones in their first LP. 

The version that is tabbed here below is this Rolling Stones' version. 

Three guitars are tabbed : 

A rhythm guitar - the solo guitar (in another UG tab) 
 and the bass here.   
Everything is of course very classical here. 

LEGEND : 

h  : hammer-on 
p  : pull-off 
/  : slide-up 
\  : slide-down 

^^ : let ring or vibrato 
(n): optional 
XbY   : bend at the X fret until it sounds like Y   ( X < Y ) 
XrY   : release at the Y fret from the X sound ( X > Y : 
        you start from the bended position ) 
Xb    : bend moderalety 
X_  : linger on that note ( rough way of noting rhythm !)
