           George Alexander and The Mellomen – El Dorado

Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

George Alexander and The Mellomen 
El Dorado (1966)
(Nelson Riddle/J. Gabriel)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zihn6FuFWZg

A moving western song from a great Howard Hawks movie ("El Dorado", 1966). 
This is a reading of the movie version. The song starts in the key of B 
and then goes up one half step after every verse. This makes for some 
difficult chords and a lot of barree. If you wnat to avoid that and just 
play the song easily, I added a second version which is in C throughout. 
Enjoy!
