                One Day – Electric Light Orchestra
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Electric Light Orchestra 
One Day (2004)
(Lynne)

From: "Zoom" (Bonus track on the 2013 Deluxe Reissue)

Maybe a little more handy: Transpose this tab down two steps to G and 
use a capo 2nd fret in order to match the key of the original (Thank you
DiddyD for all the great suggestions!).

Well done, Martin, another great ELO track, and one that no one else has tried tackling on UG.
Only thing I spotted is in your chord legend there's a typo, the G7-9 should be G#7-9.
Just a suggestion too, I find that inversion of G#7b9 a bit tricky for me, how about (4342xx) as an alternative?

In the verses I hear a B bass to both E chords (E/B = x22100)I was thinking again about that b9th chord, and although it does sound right,I thought it might possibly be a simpler change. I think there's a C# in that upward bass progression, so it might be G# - C#dim - A/E. It just sounds a bit 'cleaner' to me, and also knowing how Jeff likes his diminished chords.The next progression could also have a transitional chord: E7sus4 - E7 - AJust 'cause I don't like working too hard, I'd transpose down to G and use a capo at the 2nd fret, it makes a lot of the chords in those descending patterns fuller sounding for me.
