    Default Cheap Sunglasses ZZ Top

    I am looking for tab of proper way to play Cheap Sunglasses. I have seen 3 different tabs for the song. When watch Billy Gibbons play stays all up within first three frets with hand movements. All tablature has long movement, initial slide is on 5-6-7 fret. I have ZZ top anthology song book but the tab I do not think is right. In the beginning riff there is a stretch from 5th fret to the first fret. I am a beginner guitarist and it is tough at this point to decipher proper way to play some songs.

    I've had issues with some ZZ Top tunes because of the different tunings used and the layered guitar tracks on the recordings.

    He may play something differently live since he's the only guitar and he has to sing.

    It isn't a tab but maybe this video will help. He talks about the tuning trick about 3-5 minutes in.

    This version makes more sense, have to work on hybrid picking.
