Definitely one of the greatest Rock’n Roll songs ever written. Read Nick Hornby’s opening chapter of „31 Songs“ - I have nothing to add. This milestone seems to never lose its magic. Tabbed upon request.
Re-entrant is fine, I prefer Low G
Exceptional songs ask for exceptional action. Compared to most other stuff on this site, this one is
- fully tabbed (140 bars on six pages)
- comprising seven different parts
- includes the lyrics (for singers, and for orientation for the rest of us)
- for those of you who can sing it, I have to admit that the [ F ] part is really better strummed.
The tab is a mix of melody, harmony vocals and the attempt to imitate some of Roy Bittan’s brillant piano accompaniment. The unusual notation of the eights (most of the times 3-3-2 instead of 4-4) is helping me to stay close to the original accentuation.
