Well, I posted a request for Hold Your Head Up, by Argent.  It's not at 
Nevada, and it's a song that always eluded me...I just couldn't hear it 
right.  But nobody responded, and I got determined, and figured it out, 
finally, note for note, very exactly.  So I tabbed it out.  I don't know 
much about tab, so all I did was put the finger positions in.  No slides 
or sustains or whatever.  If that's acceptable, I'll start tabbing the 
hell out of stuff.  I've noticed the quality of tab here varies wildly.  
A few I've seen were just plain waaaaaay wrong.  But at least people are 
trying.   So I guess my question is ... is this adequate tab? For example...

    This is the first thing I've ever tabbed out, so it's very primitive,
    notationwise.  As for accuracy, I'm pretty confident in it, so this is
    at least a good starting point.

    And if it's bad - don't let them get you down - You can take it.
    And if it hurts - don't let them see you cry - You can make it
    
    Hold your head up, oh, hold your head up, oh, hold your head up, oh
    Hold your head high
    Hold your head up, oh, hold your head up, oh, hold your head up, oh
    Hold your head high
    
    And if they stare - Just let them burn their eyes on you moving
    And if they shout - Don't let it change a thing that you're doing
    
    Hold your head up, oh, hold your head up, oh, hold your head up, oh
    Hold your head high
    Hold your head up, oh, hold your head up, oh, hold your head up, oh
    Hold your head high
     
    (Keyboard solo)
 
    Hold your head up - (repeats several times)
 
    And if they stare - just let them burn their eyes on you moving
    And if they shout - don't let it change a thing that you're doing
 
    (Chorus)
    (Fade out)

Very nice tab guy! I heard this song on the radio quite a few times and thought to myself, What a nice song to add to my repuitwah. (Sorry for the spelling) You should be confident in your primative tab because it seems precise.. Anyway just wanted to let you know you nailed it... Thank you for sharing your knowledge... Mike. aka. Klunker...

I just got the Midnight Special DVD's. On the second DVD Argent plays this song. There are a several shots where you can see his hands real good. The only thing you have wrong is the first D. He doesn't play it at 7.8.5 where you show. You can clearly see he is playing a first position D-sus chord to a first position D-major. Other than that you got the rest correct.
