Moondance (Van Morrison)

Tabbed by vincesmyth

The song is different in every version,
but rotates round the following riff.


G |-------------------------------------------|
D |-(5)7-7-9---7-7-9---7-7-9-7-9-10-9-7-9-----|
A |----------7-------7--------------------7---|
E |-------------------------------------------|
"well, it's a marvellous night for a moondance....."

and some variations....
G |--------10-/--------10-/---10-7---/---------/----------|
D |-7-9-10----/-7---10----/-7------9-/-7-5-----/----------|
A |-----------/---7-------/----------/-----9-7-/---3-5-7--|
E |-----------/-----------/----------/---------/-5--------|

G ||----------------------||-------------------|
D ||.-------5-7--7-------.||-------------------|
A ||.-5-7-8--------0-2-3-.||-5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7--|
E ||----------------------||-------------------|
"and all the night's magic"

G ||----------------------5-7-||-----------------7----|
D ||.-----------0---5-7-7----.||-----------0---5---7--|
A ||.-----0-0-3---7----------.||-----0-0-3---7--------|
E ||--0-3---------------------||-0-3------------------|
"can I just have...."

try playing G ----------9-8-7-|| instead the second time thru

during SOLO (very variable, here's one I use sometimes)

G |--------7-9-10-7-------------14-12----12---|
D |-7-9-10----------10-7-9-10-7-------14------|
A |-------------------------------------------|
E |-------------------------------------------|

G |-14-12----------------------------------|
D |-------14-12-10-9-7---7-9-10-7----------|
A |--------------------7----------10-9-8---|
E |----------------------------------------| leads into BRIDGE

STOP PRESS:::: a version was transcribed in BASSIST April 2000,
but using different fingering and something very odd in the BRIDGE
section. I haven't tried it out yet, but will probably stick to
what I know works.

A lot of this tab is inaccurate... I'd take another listen to the song
