   59th Street Bridge Song (also Feelin' Groovy) - Simon and Garfunkle

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Joshua J
Email: joshua@ccbikeshop.com

Tuning: Standard tuning
Capo: 1st Fret
Key: D#

The fingering shown here assumes NO CAPO IS USED. But Simon and 
Garfunkle appear to use this fingering (as best I can figure out from a CD) 
capoed on the 1st fret.

I know no one will believe me but I figured this out by ear. In other words
it isn't perfect, but its sure is stinkin' close!

Intro:

   D   A       Dsus2 A/C#*   D/A   A     Dsus2 A
e|-2---0-----------0-------------2-0---------0-------|
B|-------2-----3-----2*------3-------2---3-----2---2-|
G|---------2-----2-----2---2---2-------2---2-----2---|
D|-0---2-------0---------2---4---4-2-----0-----------|
A|-------------------4\0*----------------------0-----|
E|---------------------------------------------------|
	*Ok this is hard, bar the A chord with your index fingering (you 
	won't play high E string) and put your ring finger on the fourth 
	fret of the A string. Pluck the B and A strings and slide your 
	ring finger to make the bass note "slide" down and carefully lift 
	that finger to let the A string ring freely. All this WHILE you 
	continue to play the next three notes :( This particular sliding 
	bass is used throughout the entire song wherever this A/C# is played.

   D/F#    A       Dsus2 A/C#*   D/F#  A     Dsus2 
e|-----2---0-----------0-------------2-0---------0-9-------------------------|
B|-3---------2-----3-----2-------3-------2---3-------10b11\5-----------------|
G|---2---------2-----2-----2---2---2-------2---2-----------------------------|
D|-4---4---2-------0---------2---4---4-2-----0-----7+*-----------------------|
A|-----------------------4\0-------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------0h2-2/5-5/7-7/9-|
	*Harmonic on seventh fret at the same time you play the 9th fret on 
	the high e string, sounds really cool :D


End of Intro

MAIN: 
   D/F#    A       Dsus2 A/C#*   D/F#  A     Dsus2 A

      "Slow down, you move to fast, you've got to make the morning last, just"
      "Kicking down the cobblestones, lookin' for fun, and feelin' groovy!"

this looks like the right notes, but why I think it's so hard for you to play is because the capo is on the third fret. With the capo on the third fret, you end up using the key of C relative to the capo instead of D, which makes it much easier. I think if you tried to tab it again using a capo on three it would be much easier and more correct. This is a good start but you could probably make a pretty great tab.

Sheesh, that is easier! I can't believe I didn't think of that... I was messing around with different positions and from other tabs I deduced people were playing in D fingering for CHORDS, but for finger picking, capoing really does work :) Thanks!
