                             LET THE LORD SHINE A LIGHT ON ME - Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Will Buxton
My first tab, so I hope you enjoy.

Tuning: Standard 

But as with so many Gallagher songs... Capo on 2nd Fret

Guys, this is the easiest song to play as it essentially revolves around three chords. 
There are two ways of playing each chord, and you can just play around with which 
version you're happiest with for the verse of instrumental / Great Gig in the Sky vocal bit.

Here's the verse

When I feel like a drop in the ocean, But there's no-one else at sea

e|-----0--------------------------0------------------0------------0-----------|
B|-----0--------------------------0------------------0------------0-----------|
G|-----2--------------------------6------------------2------------6-----------|
D|-----3--------------------------7------------------3------------7-----------|
A|-----3--------------------------7------------------3------------7-----------|
E|-----1--------------------------5------------------1------------1-----------|

And my body's bent and broken, Let the Lord Shine a Light on me

e|-----0----------------0---------------0------------0--------0----|
B|-----0----------------0---------------0------------0--------0----|
G|-----2----------------6---------------4------------2--------6----|
D|-----3----------------7---------------5------------3--------7----|
A|-----3----------------7---------------5------------3--------7----|
E|-----1----------------5---------------3------------1--------5----|

Repeat for second part of verse

Instrumental / female vocal break

e|---0---0---0---|  x 3  e|---0---0---0---|  x 1
B|---0---0---0---|       B|---0---0---0---|
G|---2---4---6---|       G|---4---2---6---|
D|---3---5---7---|       D|---5---3---7---|
A|---3---5---7---|       A|---5---3---7---|
E|---1---3---5---|       E|---3---1---5---|

Repeat

Then the verse comes back in and that's about it. 

The replacement chords for what are essentially the three open bar chords in F, G and A shape are

For the F shape

For the G shape

And for A... just play an A

And that's that. See, told you it was easy. Play around with the chords. 

You may prefer the weightier sound of the open bar chords for the instrumental break
and to use the alternative fingering for the verse, or vice versa. The choice is yours. It's
such an open song, you can just play around with the chords and make it your own.

Enjoy

Sorry guys, my balls up. A mistype on the first line of the verse... obviously the last chord isn't 177600, but 577600 (same as the second chord)

I think that the last chord in the verse is

not:

that would be very hard to do :P
