Subject: CRD: World on a String (Neil Young)

I actually posted this transcription some time ago, but considering its
correctness compared to the version at OLGA, I just thought it needed a
repost. I think it's a nifty little tune, well picked by Neil for his
Unplugged concert. Try it out!


 World on a String [Unplugged] - Neil Young
 ------------------------------------------

 Tune Low E (6.string) to D

Chords: [Power chords (5ths) played with single downstroke]

     DADGBE
 D5: 000xxx
 G5: 555xxx (use pointer-finger as barre)
 F5: 333xxx (use pointer-finger as barre)
  D: xx0232 (played with some D5 intermingled)
 G6: 550030
F/A: x03211 (fill in with a 3.string hammer on, pos. 0 -> 2)
  C: x32010 (fill in with a 4.string hammer on, pos. 0 -> 2)

 Note! The root chords are positively the correct ones, but smaller
 details may come on different to other people, so any
 comments/corrections are welcomed.
 -----------------------------

 (D5 G5 F5 D5 D) repeated

  D5  G5  F5 D5  D   D5   G5 F5 D5  D
 You know I lose,   you know I win

  D5  G5  F5 G6
 You know I called for the shape I'm in

  D5   G5  F5 D5  D   D5  G5 F5  D5   D
 It's just a game    you see me play

      F/A          C          G6               D
 Only real in the way that I feel from day to day


 Although the answer is not unknown
 I'm searchin', searchin', and how I've grown
 It's not all right, to say good-bye
 And the world on a string doesn't mean a thing

 No the world on a string doesn't mean a thing
 Only real in the way that I feel from day to day


 lyrics: from the c-d sleeve
 chords: audio
 corrections/additions welcomed

I've just noticed, this was posted in 1995, it's the only
only chord version you don't need pro tab for, and it has three, count them suckers, ... THREE votes, wow, for such
a good tab, y'all are hard to please
