DIRE STRAITS
Once Upon A Time In The West

from the Album "Communiqué"

tabbed by Lilith
 >> silberfinger@gmx.net <<



I was surprised to find no one had sent this tab in before. It's one of
Dire Straits' best songs I think, and lovely to play, as well as a good
chord training. It's got an absolutely weird time feel (which IMO makes
it interesting) using 3/4 and 4/4 mixed, I'm trying to indicate this
but anyway I think it'll be no problem when you listen to the recording.
Hope you like it, and please tell me if you find something I missed!

The intro is played by guitar only, then the verse goes like this:

  4/4            3/4               4/4            3/4
G|--------------|-----------------|--------------|-----------------|-
D|--------------|-----------------|--------------|-----------------|-
A|--------------|------7----55----|--------------|------7----55----|-
E|5-----55-----5|5--8------5----8-|5-----55-----5|5--8------5----8-|-

  3/4        4/4               3/4              4/4
G|----------|-----------------|----------------|------------------|-
D|----------|-----------------|----------------|------------------|-

                                        ____1.+2._______

repeat the verse twice (very small variations) then into the bridge:
  4/4              4/4              6/4
G|----------------|----------------|-----------------|-
D|----------------|33--33--33--33--|-----------------|-
A|55--55--55--55-3|---3---3---3----|-----------------|-
E|---5---5---5----|---------------3|55-133-01-----030|-


once again play the verse plus the bridge, then the verse again
and at end fade the whole thing out for nearly two minutes playing
the last two bars of the verse.

Have fun!
