ARTIST: THE VERVE
SONG: THE ROLLING PEOPLE
TABBED BY : DAVID G (leavemehigh_1@hotmail.com)

To say that this song took a while to tab is an understatement! You are really gonna have
to keep your ears open or even better shut off the lyrics on the record to see where some
of the stuff i've got down here comes from. Nick McCabe is a genius and inspired me to pick
up a guitar and i thought it was about time i looked more into his work and tabbed something,
this is off the actual urban hymns recording so it isn't a live version although i have seen
him play it, most of this is right, theres just little bits that i had to guess because of the
layers of echo and other guitars in the way, i may do other songs if i ever recover from tabbing
this one, though its unlikely! Keep the Verve spirit alive and keep tabbing these great songs!


GUITAR 1 - NICK McCABE
