Silver and Gold - Neil Young
From the album Silver and Gold, 2000
Transcribed by Kieran Samuk, Feb 08/2006

All the tabs for this song I've looked at so far are bad news. Here's how to play
the guitar parts in this song as it is heard on the album, with no omissions.

TUNING: DADGBE 

INTRO

This is the basic form, in reality the strumming is much more syncopated than shown.
You may also wish to hit the low-D and A string's while playing this each chord to
flesh them out.

G|-2----3---2----2------2----3----2--|

VERSE

-Uncle Neil uses alternating bass note strumming here, a staple of Folk guitar
playing. I've included strumming direction for clarity. 
-For the second chord (A-Major), either fret the alternative bass note with your
thumb or play the A chord with you 2nd, 3rd and 4th finger and fret the alternative
bass note with your first finger.
-For the G Theme Riff hammer-on, bar the second fret (strings 2,3&4) with your first
finger and hammer on the third fret of the second string with your second finger and
the fourth fret of the third string with your third finger.
