                             Can You Hear Me? - David Bowie
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: nilsson23


Tuning: Standard

A beautiful song from one of Bowie's best albums. I saw there was only the chords
to this song posted so I tried my best to figure out the little licks Carlos plays
after certain chords throughout the song. I didn't tab every little thing in the
song from start to finish because once you know the fills, you can figure out the
rest. I'm not a very good guitar player so this may be a little backwards...


Intro:
    C
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--6-/-8---6---5----6p5-----------------------------------------------------|
G|--7-/-9---7---5--------5-----5p3-------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------5h7-----------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Play this ^ four times. Except the the last pull off only happens the first
time around.

Verse:
    F            Bbmaj7                  C                  F
e|--5-----5--------1----------------------------------------1-----5----5-----|
B|--6-----6--------3-----1h3--1-----3--3/5---3h5p3---3h5-3--1-----6----6-----|
G|--5-----5--------2-----2----2--3--3--------------5--------2-----5----5-----|
D|--7-----3--------3----------------------------------------------7----3-----|
A|--8--------------1----------------------------------------------8----------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

  Bbmaj7          Am                                  Gm7          C
e|--1--------------5----5h8p5--------------------------5--3-----3--3---------|
B|--3---3--1--3----5-----------5h8p5-------------------3-----6-----5---------|
G|--2---2--2--2----5------------------5h7-5------------3-----------5---------|
D|--3----------------------------------------7-(6)-5---------------5---------|
A|--1--------------------------------------------------------------3---------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------10--------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------8--10/12------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--8h10---------------------------------------------------------------------|

The guitar on the song is just improvisation based on some fills that are based
on the chords so the rest of the song should be easy to figure out. The chords
are already uploaded if you haven't noticed.

For the intro bit try xxx10x10 slide xxx12x12 and then up to xxx8x9. fret 10 on g string and then C barre chord pick through GDAE strings and then D string still in C barre chord on the tenth fret. Sorry I can't tab properly. Great song, very underrated Bowie

Yes, Mick, that's definitely it. I'm amazed I even got it to sound somewhat right but I'm glad for your suggestion. I will change it soon! And yes, I always thought this album was great in it's own right and even better considering it was like an interesting one-off from Bowie. One of my favorites and beautiful songs!
