I'm sure there's a thread on tab for this song somewhere, but it's late and I don't want to search...

I came across this on a disc in the garage tonight and thought I'd share:

BACK TO THE COAST
by QUIET RIOT
transcribed by JOSH CRUM (AXEMAN12656)

Tempo: 156 BPM

INTRO: RHYTHM FIGURE 1

E-----------------------------
B-----------------------------
G-----------------------7---2-
D--2-2-----2-4---5-----7--2--
A--0-0-3-4-------5-----5--0--
E-----------------3-----------

REPEAT INTRO RHYTHM FIGURE 1 THRU THE VERSE

West coast, try it out
You've got to make it before you die out
New York is the hard way
Time to pack it up and get to L.A.

REPEAT RHYTHM FIGURE 2 THRU THE CHORUS

E-----------------------------------------------------------
B---------9----------------9-------------------------------
G--7--7--9--7-----7--7--9--7---------------------------
D--7--7--7--7-----7--7--7--7----5--4--5---5--4--5--
A--5--5--5--5-----5--5--5--5----5--4--5---5--4--5--
E------------------------------------3--2--3---3--2--3--

If you want to be a star
Get back to the coast, back to the coast
You’re gonna make it real far
So get back to the coast, back to the coast

REPEAT INTRO RHYTHM FIGURE 1 THRU THE VERSE

My way is the sky way
Ain't got no time for the highway
I've got to get to the coast, fast as I can
Get to L.A. we'll be the number one band

REPEAT RHYTHM FIGURE 2 THRU THE CHORUS

If you want to be a star
Get back to the coast, back to the coast
You’re gonna make it real far
So get back to the coast, back to the coast
You've got to get on back, get back
If you want to be a star
Get back to the coast, back to the coast
You’re gonna make it real far
So get back to the coast, back to the coast

RHYTHM FIGURE 3

D D D D D G F# G G F# G
I say back back back back back back to the coast back to the coast
D D D D D G F# G
Get back back back back back back to the coast

Well yeah

*SOLO*

Oh, get on back!

END WITH THESE CHORDS
G, C, D

You're very welcome... I always loved that song. It's funny that I have wanted to play it for so long - I got pretty close on my own - only to find that piece tabbed out in, like, 2003 and on a data disc in my closet since then. RR.TK was incredible back in those days, everyday it seemed that something new surfaced.

Okay, so I sat and listened to the original recording from the first Quiet Riot record and the above transcription is just not right.

Up to the solo it should be more like this:

Title: Back to the Coast
Tempo = 157

( L = tied note )


It's late, so I'll check out the solo tomorrow and then work out the jam at the end...
