About this tab version
This is mostly based on the excellent Alan Robinson video which is a transcription of the Paul Simon arrangement (but Paul Simon copied it from (was given it by) the great Martin Carthy version. The A7sus4add6 looks like a Am7 played on the 3rd fret, and for the Em9no5D just add a 3rd finger to the A7sus4add6 to make a C shape chord (1st finger stays on the 3rd fret). For the CM9 in the intro I just touch the C note on the A string momentarily without the whole chord. I arpeggio ad lib all the way through this song but you can strum too (in which case make them Em before the CM9 and just tap on the C). Was this info helpful? Yes No
