                All Things Must Pass - George Harrison
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Written by: George Harrison
From: “All Things Must Pass” (1970)

Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard / Drop D

Here is my reading of this beautiful song for acoustic guitar. There are
a lot of acoustics on Harrison's studio recording and they may play 
different voicings with or without capo. Playing alone, I like using
the shapes and settings below.

Version 1: standard tuning, no capo
Version 2: drop-D, capo 2nd fret to match the tuning of the original

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
VERSION 1
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

tuning: standard
capo: -
key: E

[Verse 1]

E                 B7sus4/E    E        A
Sunrise  doesn't  last  all   morning, 
E    B7sus4/E           E        A
   A cloudburst doesn't last all day 
E          B7sus4/E           E                A
  Seems my love is up and has left you with no warning 
E              B7sus4/E        E       A
  But it's not always going to be this grey 


[Chorus]

Bm                A       Asus4 A
  All things must pass, 
E                B7sus4/E  E   B7sus4/E      Emaj7    A
 All things must pass     away 


[Verse 2]

E              B7sus4/E    E        A
Sunset doesn't last   all  evening, 
E    B7sus4/E            E       A
   A mind can blow those clouds away 
E          B7sus4/E        E              A
 After all this my love is up and must be leaving 
E          B7sus4/E        E       A
  It's not always going to be this grey 


[Chorus]

Bm                A       Asus4 A
  All things must pass, 
E                B7sus4/E  E   B7sus4/E      
 All things must pass     away 


[Middle 8]

Bm    Bm7        A
  All things must pass,

  None of life's strings can last
     Emaj7             B7sus4/E   
So I must be on my way    and face another day 


[Verse 3]

        E             B7sus4/E  E           A
Now the darkness only stays at  nighttime, 
E         B7sus4/E        E         A
   In the morning it will fade away 
E            B7sus4/E  E             A
 Daylight is good at arriving at the right time 
E          B7sus4/E        E       A
  It's not always going to be this grey 


[Chorus]

Bm                A       Asus4 A
  All things must pass, 
E                B7sus4/E E   B7sus4/E      
 All things must pass    away 
Bm                A       Asus4 A
  All things must pass,

Great Tabs!
Just a tip for all you out there playing this

-To get the 'Anthology' Demo sound, add some delay and tremolo to your sound and it should be very close to the sound in the demo

-To get the 'Early Takes Vol. 1' sound, tune your guitar down a semitone (half step) so it will be D# G# C# F# A# D# rather than EADGBE

*personally I like tuning a half step down because it fits my vocal range there
