Song: Georgy girl
Artist: The Seekers
Composers: Tom Springfield & Jim Dale

Tabbed by DJ ('DiddyD' at ultimateGuitar.com)
30th July 2013

TV performance:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32Mf_G8EXCA

[N.B. There are some live performances played a semi-tone up,
and also some later versions a semi-tone down]

For Keith Podger's part, his 12 string is tuned down a whole tone
to D-G-C-F-A-D, and he plays the song in C (which still sounds in Bb).
As well as the blend of the 6 and 12 string guitars, the detuning
takes some strain off the 12 string's neck and adds extra tones
and harmonics which gave the band a much fuller live sound.
[N.B. The usual conventional 12 string pairing of the lower 4
strings in octaves, and the higher 2 strings in unison still applies
with this dropped tuning]

Bruce Woodley plays the song on his six string as below:

CAPO: 4th fret - Sounds in key of B

               A     = x02220    C/G * = 3x2013
