About this tab version
Complete tab from start to finish, including extended intro to be played during the harmonica solo. Was this info helpful? Yes No
“Heart of Gold” by Neil Young                              Tabbed by: Mark Foley

This should be pretty accurate, as I had my guitar instructor Phil D look it over.

Best thanks - very nice.
Only one suggestion:
The last note in the intro
should be e (d/2) not b (a/2).

Hi Peter,I tried replying to you a couple times, but UG didn't send the message out. I'll try again.I reviewed your comment with my guitar instructor and he agreed with my tab. The first note of the intro is an "e", although it may sound like the first swing thru the intro ends in "e", but the second play through actually starts with an "e".I do appreciate you looking at my tab and commenting on it.Mark
