Artist: The Zombies
Song: Smokey day
Album: 'Zombie heaven' box set
Tabbed by: DJ
Sept 2012

A 'lost' gem, that would have fitted in well on their classic
'Odessey & oracle' album. Demo version available on the
'Zombie heaven' box set. A later, orchestrated version, was also
recorded by Colin Blunstone on his debut solo album 'One year'.

This transcription is intended to be played fingerstyle,
as there are partial chords in the break.

My intention for the two bar sequence
Am - Am6 - Bm6/A - Am
was that the first Am is a first inversion shape, and the last Am is a second inversion shape, and should have been shown as Am(type 2)in every case.
For some reason when the site formats some tabs, little details sometimes get missed off.

UG have now fixed their problem with displaying certain slash chords, so this tab now appears as it was when I sent it them.
