			     Walking in the Air - Nightwish
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: RainbowBassist
Email: Just message

Tuning: Standard
Time Signature: 4/4

By the way, the harmonies in the end and in the solo might be a little off from the 
recording, but they sound fine on their own, so it should work okay.

Chord Progression for Piano Intro:
Dm|Dm|Dm|Dm

Dm
We're walking in the air
Dm						C
We're floating in the moonlit sky
    Gm  				Bb			    Dm

Far across the world

The villages go by like trees

the rivers and the hills
Bb			            Dm
The forest and the streams

A		    Dm
Children gaze open mouth
G	    C
Taken by surprise
Cm	  F          Bb	        A
Nobody down below believes their eyes

We're drifting over icy
Bb				  Dm
Mountains floating by

A	    Dm		  G		    C
Suddenly swooping low on an ocean deep
Cm  		    F   		    Bb	   A
Arousing of a mighty monster from its sleep

2 bars drums beginning on ‘sleep’
Pick up note on beat 4 of the second bar, leads into solo.

Guitar Solo:

Guitar 1: Sounds like there’s a very faint delay setting on it, as every note is 
2 beats after it’s played, very quietly.

I apologize that the spacing and formatting is a little off for the chords and such, but just listen to the song to
figure it out. :)
Thanks

One note wrong for the harmonized solo, but you are a god for tabbing this.
I've been looking everywhere!!!

I would play this with power chords, if I would cover this... I'm livin' in the same country with Nightwish, and I say Tarja Turunen was better than the chick singing now...
