===========Given to Fly
by Pearl Jam
words....Vedder
music....McCready
from the album YIELD

18/03/98
Transcribed by    bandit1@eisa.net.au    Clayton Howell


Note from author:
     A piece of music should, as close as possible, be read in a linear
fashion, much the same as you read a book. When transcribing a piece of
music this should always be followed, as it helps the reader when learning
the song.
     I don't mean to offend the previous author, or any other authors, it's
just that I'm tired of getting lost trying to follow TAB that I've received
from the net. So with this transcription I've tried to follow the way that
any other music book or magazine would publish a piece of music.
     This isn't the first transcription of 'Given to Fly' on the net, and
as I have already mentioned that I found it hard to follow, I decided to
send in my own transcription. It differs in that I feel the intro is more
accurate, and I've tried to write the chordal parts as close to the rhythm
on the CD as possible. Although I know it's not totally 100% right.
     I saw PEARL JAM play on their recent tour of Australia, and paid close
attention, through a pair of binoculars, to how Mike McMready played the
intro. From there I began transcribing. I know I'm not totally 100%
correct, and that the whole song is not here, so if you find any mistakes,
please let me know.
ENJOY.
Intro

Clean guitar, with either a Flanger or Phaser. I'm not quite sure.
Let ring throughout.
Finger style.

well i cant tell you that you made a mistake, but on an interview wtih the band they give clear shot of mike playing and he seems to be playing with longer slides. the second tab is more accurate. but i mean you went to the concert so i cant tell you wrong, either way, this is a good tab, thank you.
and especially thanks for showing whcich was to strum, almost no one does that.

not to burst claytons bubble but i have the same interview of mike playing the song on vhs and i rewound it and rewound it over and over again just to learn it....and honestly it sounds more clear the way mike does it and it's much more easier to play. study the interview. it's from the Single Video Theory vhs, it's also on youtube but on there they abbreviate it to SVT..so look it up, it was really helpful.

I want to post or [tab]
