Alice Cooper Tablature: Cold Ethyl

Cold Ethyl Intro

Words and music by Alice Cooper and Bob Ezrin
From the album Welcome To My Nightmare (1975)
Transcribed by Dean the Mad Axeman

This is how I play this song when I ain't got no-one to jam with.
It's my first attempt at tabbing anything. Hope it's readable!
I also play a heavily damped galloping rhythm to fill the gaps in the intro solo,
if you know the song you'll know what I mean.


| /  slide up
