Subject: "Time It Was" by Paul Simon


I had a moment to reformat my submittal of "Time it Was".  I hope that I've
got it right this time.  Typing tab on a word processor is murder.

Time It Was (KODAK Song) by Paul Simon
This gives away my age; I picked this up from the radio
Sweet Elegance and understatement are the goals here.
To make it flow, each of the triplets are played like a chord.
The first chord is a "C" form E played with a 1/2 barre on the
4th fret.
For the second finger form, the third and fourth fingers are
place on the seventh
fret of the third and first strings, the first finger 1/2 barres
the fourth fret and then slides to the fifth fret. The second
finger is added to the 6th fret of the third string during the
slide.
The last chord form is an "E" form A in the fifth position.  You
don't need to barre the fifth fret, just use the index finger for
the second string.

  "C" form E   2nd form

For each verse play it through to the first ending then return to
the beginning and play through to the second ending.

its called "Bookends" and this is a tad harder way to play it, the way in the paul simon songbook is much easier
