                All Things Must Pass - George Harrison
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard / Drop D

George Harrison
All Things Must Pass (1970)
(George Harrison)
From: "All Things Must Pass"

Here is my reading of this beautiful song for acoustic guitar. There are
a lot of acoustics on Harrison's studio recording and they may play 
different voicings with or without capo. Playing alone, I like using
the shapes and settings below.

Version 1: standard tuning, no capo
Version 2: drop-D, capo 2nd fret to match the tuning of the original

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
VERSION 1
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

tuning: standard
capo: -
key: E

Great Tabs!
Just a tip for all you out there playing this

-To get the 'Anthology' Demo sound, add some delay and tremolo to your sound and it should be very close to the sound in the demo

-To get the 'Early Takes Vol. 1' sound, tune your guitar down a semitone (half step) so it will be D# G# C# F# A# D# rather than EADGBE

*personally I like tuning a half step down because it fits my vocal range there
