Hey everybody. Ive been trying to figure out the outro to the old tv series "Tour of Duty". I loved the show as a kid and Ive recently got back into playing guitar. Ive got the lead part down but I cant for the life of me figure out the acoustic section. Ive tried figuring it out by ear and I'm completely stumped. It doesnt sound to difficult but man, I'm really struggling with it. If anybody could point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it!!

That song is called "Paint It Black" by The Rolling Stones, it's a classic song so there will surely be some good tabs on it on UG. Good luck, and great song!

BTW, Tour of Duty was an awesome show back in th day.

Thank you for the reply. Paint it black is an incredible song as was the tv show but the song that I'm referring to is the song that is played during the ending credits while it shows the soldiers walking with the sun setting in the background. It was composed by Joseph Conlan and I've searched all over for the tabs or any information on this song and come up empty. Andi Kravljaca did an amazing remake of this song and it's on Youtube.

I think you mean the ending theme song from the VHS/DVD Series which not Paint in Black but one from Joseph Conlan.
Were you you able to get this tab, I am also trying to figure it out myself.

Hope this helps some.... at least it may get you thinking
to some chords you may not have tried.... This is in
standard tuning the way I did it... Like I said it may help
and then again it may not.... But I tried.... I am used to songs with
singing and lyrics and not instrumentals.....
