                Playground Love (Voc: Gordon Tracks) – Air
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Playground Love (Voc: Gordon Tracks) (1999)
(Gordon Tracks/JB Dunckel/N. Godin)

From: "The Virgin suicides - Original Motion Picture Score"

A fascinating song! The chords are multi-layered and some of them are 
not easy to play on a guitar. But using a capo helps a lot ... I think 
what I've got here is pretty close, although there are chords about 
which I'm not a 100% sure. Suggestions are highly welcome.

Sorry, but some of the chords just won't show in the positions I formatted them (in relation to the lyrics). Tried to correct it but it does not work. But when playing along, I think, it becomes clear where you have to change.

Thank you very much for the tab and the record. It sounds great. I still can´t play some chords accurately (damm am7/9), but with more practice. Also I don´t understand what this (2) in Fdim means.

Thank you for the rating! The Am9 is a tough one, I know ... but it sounds so great. And, yeah, practising helps. ;)

The (2) in the Fdim voicing means, this note is optional. If you want to play the A-string, play this note; else you shouldn't play it at all. So, either1-2-0-1-0-x or 1-x-0-1-0-x.

Enjoy playing this beautiful song!
