"Till tomorrow" from the album "American pie"

by Don McLean

This is kind of relaxing tune and rather simple to play. Note the tuning
(Open bE) The rythme may be a bit tricky at first, but keep at it...
There are alot of violins in the tune which makes it hard to hear the
guitar in some parts, but this sounds correct. Try it and see, tell me
what you think. Listen to the album otherwise this TAB is useless.

The lyrics follow after the TAB...

Have fun!

Methode for tuning to open bE quickly:

The g string (3rd) is the only string that remains the same
from standard tuning. This string is used as a starting point.
Follow the steps below in the listed order. The string on the
left hand side of the equals sign (=) is string to be tuned.
The string on the right hand side is the referance note.

Tuning: 2nd string = 3rd string, 3rd fret (tune down)
	1st string = 2nd string, 5th fret (tune down)
	6th string = 1st string           (tune down)
	5th string = 6th string, 7th fret (tune up)
	4th string = 5th string, 5th fret (tune up)

Till tomorrow.

Till tomorrow

1.Verse	 What can this be - can you tell me
	 Would you like to discover
	 Why we're not free - to be lovers
	 I've been wanting to ask you

1.Chorus Where has all the love gone
	 And what have we become
	 Storm clouds full of thunder
	 Move silent as they drum

2.Verse	 And when they're gone, we'll be fine - till tommorrow
	 Oh I hope it won't rain
	 You will be mine - and my sorrow
	 Will take wings in the morning

2.Chorus High above the heavens
	 A rainbow paints the sky
	 White doves sing their songs of love
	 I watch them as they fly - and wonder

3.Verse	 What can this be - can you tell me
	 Would you like to discover
	 Why we're not free - to be lovers...

Um...I haven't tried playing it yet, but what the heck is up with your description of the tuning?
And why do you put the flat and sharps before the chord?
Eb instead of bE.
Just a suggestion so people don't completely mock you and call you retarded.

bE or Eb, who cares? Anyone with a brain can see this is an excellent tab. Simple and right on the money. And thank you for including the lyrics!

Try drop D tuning, top string to D only, and it can be finger-picked easily with thumb on top string and the three other fingers shifted up with index finger on the A string, middle finger on the D string, ring finger on the G string. This allows normal chord playing when needed and then shift to the picking position when needed.
