This is great however I think the G over 'a girl' in the second line of the chorus is wrong. I think it just stays on the D and then play the C on 'stay'. Just my thoughts

THIS "ARRANGEMENT" IS WRONG! How could you possibly screw up such a relatively simple strummer like "Solitary Man"? Seriously, were you drunk when you posted this misleading "arrangement"? I'm so sick of finding erroneous information on these guitar chord & tabulature websites. Not only do these failed attempts at lifting songs confuse & mislead the students & musicians who trust the subsequent incorrect posts by over–eager, rank amateurs (like the idiot who posted this travesty & went on to actually DEFEND it when challenged by the first commenter), if a mistake is contained in the initial posting, it tends to be copied by other such sites to fill out their catalogues. Before you know it, EVERYONE who relies on the internet for musical guidance is playing the song incorrectly! If you don't actually know the song or lack the experience and musical ear required to accurately lift the song, then DON'T POST IT! In this instance, the initial comment was indeed correct; in the chorus of "Solitary Man", the "D" chord in the 4th bar ("find me") continues to be strummed through the 5th bar ("A girl who will") & changes to a "C" chord ("stay and won't) in the 6th bar. The chorus does NOT return to "G" when the phrase repeats! If you knew the first thing about musical theory (which you evidently don't), you'd realize that a line of melody can indeed be repeated with an entirely different chordal accompaniment or foundation, provided that said progression is extracted from at least the diatonic scale of the key that the composition's key; simply because the composer electes to utilize the tonic chord at the start of the chorus doesn't inherently mean that the same chord has to automatically be applied when and if that phrase is repeated.Neil certainly deserves better than this!
