WIND OF CHANGE - Scorpions
Tabbed by:DJ Inferno
Tuning:E B G D A E

[Intro] 

F  Dm  F  Dm*  Am*  G*  C


[Verse]

C                Dm
 I follow the Moskva
               C
 Down to Gorky Park
                  Dm*      Am*  G* C!
 Listening to the wind of change
C                 Dm
 An August summer night
                  C
 Soldiers passing by
                  Dm*      Am*  G* C!
 Listening to the wind of change

C                     Dm
 The world is closing in
              C
 Did you ever think
                     Dm*          Am*    G*  C!
 That we could be so close, like brothers

C                    Dm
 The future's in the air
                    C
 I can feel it everywhere
                  Dm*          Am*    G*  C!
 Blowing with the wind of change


[Chorus]

C     G         Dm           G
 Take me to the magic of the moment
      C     G
On a glory night
          Dm            G             Am
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
 F               G
In the wind of change


[Verse]

C                 Dm
 Walking down the street
             C
 Distant memories
                   Dm*          Am*    G*  C!
 Are buried in the past forever

C                Dm
 I follow the Moskva
               C
 Down to Gorky Park
                 Dm*          Am*    G*  C!
 Listening to the wind of change


[Chorus]

C     G         Dm           G
Take me to the magic of the moment
      C     G
On a glory night
          Dm            G             Am
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
      F!      G!
With you and me

C     G         Dm           G
Take me to the magic of the moment
      C     G
On a glory night
          Dm            G             Am
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
      F!      G!
With you and me


[Bridge]

Am                        G
 The wind of change blows straight
                   Am
 Into the face of time
                            G
 Like a stormwind that will ring
                               Am
 The freedom bell for peace of mind
                    C
 Let your balalaika sing
                         Em     E7
 What my guitar wants to say


[Chorus]

C     G         Dm           G
Take me to the magic of the moment
      C     G
On a glory night
          Dm            G             Am
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
      F!      G!
With you and me

C     G         Dm           G
Take me to the magic of the moment
      C     G
On a glory night
          Dm            G             Am
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
      F!      G!
In the wind of change


[Outro] 

F  Dm  F  Dm*  Am*  G*  C


(NOTES)

1) when a chord is followed by a !, it means that you do not strum the chord
but instead you play it in one quick downward motion.
2) when a chord is followed by a *, it means that the chord has to be plucked.
the plucking pattern is given below

(PLUCKING PATTERN)

The plucking progression for Dm, Am and G goes like this

     Dm         Am          G
e|---1-----|---0-----|------------|
B|-----3---|-----1---|-----3------|
G|-2-----2-|-2-----2-|-0-----0----|
D|-0-------|-2-------|-0-------0--|
A|-0-------|-0-------|-2----------|
E|-0-------|-0-------|-3----------|

Or this

    Dm         Am          G
e|---------|---------|---------|
B|-6-6-----|-5-5-----|-5-5-----|
G|-7---7---|-5---5---|-4---4---|
D|-7-----5-|-7-----7-|-5-----5-|
A|-5-------|-7-------|-5-------|
E|---------|-5-------|-3-------|     

The whistling bit can be played on the guitar but it doesn't sound too good.

e|----------------------------|
B|----0-1--1-1-------0-1-3-1--|
G|--2----------2-2-2----------|x2
D|----------------------------|
A|----------------------------|
E|----------------------------|

 The Dm,Am,G plucking is immediately picked up after the last note.

e|-----0-1-0---------------------|
B|-1-3---------------------------|
G|-------------------------------| 
D|-------------------------------| 
A|-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------|

I think you did a good job overall. I found a few things that you may want to check out and maybe correct. I think the intro should go like this

(Intro)

F Dm F Dm Am Dm* Am* G* C!

Also, the last line in each verse that is just before the chorus stays in G versus going back to C.

I also found a couple of things towards the end of the bridge. Here's how I hear the bridge:

(Bridge)

Am G
The wind of change blows straight
Am
Into the face of time
G
Like a storm wind that will ring
C
The freedom bell for peace of mind
Dm
Let your balalaika sing
E
What my guitar wants to say

If you want, you can add the chords for the Solo. Here's how I heard them:

(Solo - 12 Bar)

F G Em Am F G Am Am F G Em Am F Em-E

Last thing I noticed is that the outro is different than the intro. Here's how I hear the outro

(Outro)

F Dm F Dm Am Dm

Like I said, you did a nice job with this. Mine is so close to yours that I don't think they'll post it. Take a listen and let me know what you think.

Good luck and happy playin'

Chris

For some reason the spacing didn't work out for the bridge. Basicly, it changes to a C in MIND in the line ending "for peace of mind" the next line goes to Dm on "sing" and the last line goes to E on "say." Let me know what you think
