Corrections to existing TABS:

 

 

 

1) Richard Cook's TAB (in D, capo on 2nd fret) lists the chords of the

 

bridge as:

 

 

 

Dm G

 

She ... anywhere

 

Dm G A

 

I ... chair.

 

 

 

which contains 2 errors. To be played in D the chords should be:

 

 

 

Dm G

 

She ... anywhere

 

Dm Em7 A7

 

I ... chair.

 

 

 

2) Robert Hall's TAB (in E) lists the chords of the bridge as:

 

 

 

Am D

 

She ... anywhere

 

Am D F#

 

I ... chair ---> verse (E riff above)

 

 

 

which are in the wrong key. To be played in E the chords should be:

 

 

 

Em A

 

She ... anywhere

 

Em Fm7 B7

 

I ... chair.

notes:

 

1. Spacing doesn't indicate timing - I just lined the tab up with the lyrics.

 

2. Chords are tabbed for their first beat only. The D chord is strummed down,

 

up, down. Note the hammer-on at the end of each measure.

 

3. Holding the D chord, use your pinky for 3rd fret notes and index finger

 

for 1st fret notes, middle finger for 3rd fret on the A string.

 

4. Have an accompanist play along without a capo:

This song is in E; you can play it in D with a capo, but

 

I don't have one, so I figured out this version. It lets

 

you play the rhythm and lead guitar parts at the same time:

LYRICS: I once had a girl, or should I say, she once had me.

 

She showed me her room. Isn't it good, Norwegian Wood?

 

 

 

She asked me to stay, and she told me to sit anywhere.

 

So I looked around, and I noticed there wasn't a chair.

 

 

 

I sat on a rug, biding my time, drinking her wine.

 

We talked until two, and then she said, it's time for bed.

 

 

 

She told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh.

 

I told her I didn't and crawled off to sleep in the bath.

 

 

 

And, when I awoke, I was alone. This bird had flown.

 

So, I lit a fire. Isn't it good, Norwegian Wood?

 

 

 

--------------------------

 

 

 

 

 

The sitar is the actual instrument used by

 

George Harrison to play this song. It is

 

the first Beatle's song where it is present.

HOW TO SUBMIT FILES TO OLGA (THE ON-LINE GUITAR ARCHIVE)

 

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

 

 

 

OLGA, the On-Line Guitar Archive, is a natural development of

 

the guitar.tab newsgroups. The Archive provides a library of files that

 

is more permanent than usenet and is easily accessible, and attempts to

 

prevent repetition of work already done by the community.

 

 

 

If you can educate others in how to play a song, type up

 

the chords and/or tab and/or playing tip and send it to both the

 

newsgroups *AND* the archive, and contribute to the community.

 

 

 

It's very simple:

 

 

 

Step 1: Before you submit, make sure of the following:

 

Final That you have included the song name, artist's name

 

Preparations and your own name (and if different, the transciber's name)

 

 

 

If you can, include other information such as the name

 

of the album from which the track comes, the name of the

 

author of the words and music, details of the publisher

 

and catalogue number, and notes on what effects are used

 

and on how to play the music.

 

 

 

Make sure that the file is 'all your own work'. If you

 

use copyrighted material, it won't (knowingly) be

 

archived.

 

 

 

You should also check the archive to ensure that you

 

are not duplicating material already there. If a chord

 

or tab file already exists for the song, take it down

 

and incorporate your material with it. Always credit

 

the original author and mention what each of you has

 

done. If the file is anonymous at the archive, you

 

should nonetheless state that you used material from

 

the archive, and if practicable, disclaim credit for

 

the portions used.

 

 

 

Step 2: The simplest method of submitting for all concerned is

 

Submitting simply to email it to guitar@nevada.edu Use a subject

 

line of the same form as you post to news, i.e.

 

TAB: <songname> by <artistname>

 

 

 

Alternatively, you can use ftp. If you don't know how,

 

read the FAQ file posted to the guitar.tab newsgroups by

 

Ryan Harding called 'The Ultimate Guide to the Tab Archives'.

 

Use the 'put' command during an ftp session to

 

ftp.nevada.edu/pub/guitar/incoming

 

Please follow the instructions in the file READ_BEFORE_PUTTING

 

N.B.: You can submit by ftp to the *nevada site only*.

 

There are incoming directories at some of the other OLGA

 

sites (for different purposes), but if you upload tab or

 

chords to those sites they won't be archived at *any* site.

 

 

 

Step 3: Files are processed and archived manually, so it can take

 

Checking anywhere from 30 seconds to 2 weeks to archive your file.

 

In practice, it never takes more than a week, so you can start

 

checking if your file is at OLGA 4-7 days after submission.

 

Note that the file filters down through the sites, and this

 

may also take some time

 

The best way to check is to read the INFO file posted to

 

the guitar.tab newsgroups every Monday called 'OLGA WEEKLY

 

INDEX'. The indexes are for the second previous week, so

 

if the name of your file does not appear on this list

 

one of the *three* Monday's after you submit it, contact

 

guitar@nevada.edu and inquire politely as to its whereabouts.

 

You can receive the WEEKLY INDEX and other OLGA notices by

 

email. Write to rcwoods@alf2.tcd.ie to have your name added.

 

 

 

Your file at OLGA:

 

Any file archived becomes the property of the archive in so far as

 

material extraneous to the musical content (the header and .sig) may

 

be removed or edited. The author's name and e-mail address will always

 

be retained if accompanying the file, along with any other information

 

the archivists deem relevant.

 

The archivists retain the right to modify or remove files as they see fit.

 

In cases of duplication of a song, the archivists may remove a

 

transcription of inferior quality.

 

Copyright of work remains with the author of that work. Posting to usenet

 

or to the archive implicitly gives permission for fair-use distribution.

 

Requests to have files removed or modified should be made to the

 

archivists by e-mail to guitar@nevada.edu.

Dear guitar@nevada.edu,

 

My name is Stuart Watson, and I would like to submit a tabbed-out

 

version of the song Money, by Pink Floyd, to you. So, here it is:

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

From: lrw@virginia.edu (Stuart Watson)

 

 

 

Here's the tablature for the song Money, by Pink Floyd. The song appeared

 

on the album The Dark Side of the Moon, released in 1973. Roger Waters

 

wrote and sang the song. Here it is:

 

 

 

(repeat this many times) (then...)

SOLOS:

To get the song completely right, and know what order

 

to play it in, I'd listen to it.

Corrections to existing TABS:

 

 

 

1) Richard Cook's TAB (in D, capo on 2nd fret) lists the chords of the

 

bridge as:

 

 

 

Dm G

 

She ... anywhere

 

Dm G A

 

I ... chair.

 

 

 

which contains 2 errors. To be played in D the chords should be:

 

 

 

Dm G

 

She ... anywhere

 

Dm Em7 A7

 

I ... chair.

 

 

 

2) Robert Hall's TAB (in E) lists the chords of the bridge as:

 

 

 

Am D

 

She ... anywhere

 

Am D F#

 

I ... chair ---> verse (E riff above)

 

 

 

which are in the wrong key. To be played in E the chords should be:

 

 

 

Em A

 

She ... anywhere

 

Em Fm7 B7

 

I ... chair.

I looked around and I noticed there wasn't a chair.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I sat on a rug, biding my time

 

drinking her wine.

 

We talked until two, and then she said

 

it's time for bed.

She told me she worked in the morning

 

and started to laugh.

 

I told her I didn't

 

and crawled off to sleep in the bath.

 

 

 

And, when I awoke, I was alone

 

this bird had flown.

 

So, I lit a fire, isn't it good

 

Norwegian wood.

 

 

 

[repeat 1st measure]

 

 

 

 

 

notes:

 

1. Spacing doesn't indicate timing - I just lined the tab up with the lyrics.

 

2. Chords are tabbed for their first beat only. The D chord is strummed down,

 

up, down. Note the hammer-on at the end of each measure.

 

3. Holding the D chord, use your pinky for 3rd fret notes and index finger

 

for 1st fret notes, middle finger for 3rd fret on the A string.

 

4. Have an accompanist play along without a capo:

This song is in E; you can play it in D with a capo, but

 

I don't have one, so I figured out this version. It lets

 

you play the rhythm and lead guitar parts at the same time:

 

 

 

e --0---0---0---0---0---x---x---x---0---x---x---x---0----------

| I once had a girl or shld I say she once had me

 

-> (c) B (c) G (c) D G G (c) D G A (c)

 

 

 

 

 

Accent the string listed below the word to bring out

 

the melody. (c) means accent the whole chord. Use your

 

smallest finger to hit the notes during "I once had a girl."
