Tom Petty & the Wildflowers
Don't Fade on Me

I dont know the picking style but I have the notes 
down just about perfect. I dont know if its supposed 
to be in drop-D tuning, but it sounds right. I cant 
figure out the timing on it. One of Tom Petty's best.

Drop D tuning

Fill A
          D chord
E|-------------------------------|
B|-----3--3-3-3------3--3-3-3----|
G|-----2--2-2-2------2--2-2-2----| (repeat several times)
D|-----0--0-0-0------0--0-0-0----|
A|-------------------------------|
D|--0-------------0--------------|


Verse:

"I remember..." C     G     D
|--------------------------------|
|--------------1-1---3-3---3-3---|
|--------------0-0---0-0---2-2---|
|--------------2-2---0-0---0-0---|
|--------------3-3---2-2---0-0---|
|--------------------------0-0---|

Repeat Fill A about once
Repeat all twice or more (end of verse)

Repeat Fill A twice before Chorus

Chorus:

    F   C   D "So dont..."          "Fade"
|---------------------------------------|
|---1---1---3--------------1---1--3-----|
|---2---0---2--------------2---0--2-----|
|---3---2---0--------------3---2--0-----|
|-------3---0------------------3--0-----|
|-----------0---------------------0-----|


|------------------------|
|--1--1--3--3---3-3-3----|
|--2--0--2--2---2-2-2----|
|--3--2--0--0---0-0-0----|
|-----3--0---------------|
|--------0---------------|

Fill A "No don't fade on..."

"...me"
|----------------------------------|
|-------------------------------3--|
|-------------------------------2--|
|-0---------------3p0-----------0--|
|-0-(let ring)--------3p0----------|
|-0-----------------------3--0-----|

Sometimes he ends the riff with:

     (bend with vibrato)
|-----------------------|
|-----------------------|
|-----------------------|
|---------0~------------|
|---------0~------------|
|--0--3b--0~------------|

Its not perfect, but it should help you 
figure out the real way.

Double Drop D.
Try it in 6/4.
Works for me!

Clearly wrong. Chords in the verse are completely wrong, as well as the chorus. Go to the other tab submitted and it's all correct.
