Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Hey guys, this is the first song i ever learned to play, so you might be able to 
imagine that it is very very easy! :)

CAPO IS USUALLY ON 2nd FRET BUT I PLAY ON 4th. IT DEPENDS ON YOUR VOICE. YOU CAN 
EASILY PLAY WITHOUT A CAPO!!! 

 You need to know 2 chords, and for an extra twist you can add a third one. You 
need D and G and the optional A chord.

This song is so straight forward! You can play it anyway you like but if you would 
like the right technique, which is what Paul himself played/plays, then here you go

IMPORTANT INFO ON STRUMMINGPATTERN RIGHT HERE:::::

You pick the bass string and then you do 2 downstrums. For those of you who are 
new to playing, as i was back when i learned this song, the bass string is the 
first string in the chord. Example: Bass string of a G Chord is the big E (number 
one from the top) while a D chord has the D string (3rd from the top, fourth from 
the bottom) as its Bass string. 

Just pick that and then you downstrum twice. Really simple. 

Here we go. i will put the chords on the first and second verses and choruses and 
then you are on your own for the simple reason that the third and final verse is 
exactly like the first verse. Good luck and have fun playing this ol' beauty!

BTW!!! I JUST TOOK THE LYRICS FROM SOME LYRIC SITE. I KNOW THEY MIGHT BE WRONG SO 
DONT BOTHER WRITING! :)

Intro: D (with the bass string picking i mentioned, as it is in the rest of the 
song.. No regular strumming here! :D )

D
Mull of kintyre 
   G                       D
Oh mist rolling in from the sea,
             G 
My desire is always to be here
   D
Oh mull of kintyre 

D
Far have I traveled and much have I seen 
G                           D
Dark distant mountains with valleys of green. 
D
Past painted deserts the sunsets on fire 
      G
As he carries me home to the mull of kintyre. 

D
Mull of kintyre 
   G                       D
Oh mist rolling in from the sea,
             G 
My desire is always to be here
   D
Oh mull of kintyre 

D
Sweep through the heather like deer in the glen 
G                    D
Carry me back to the days I knew then. 

D                             Pick the bass note of D here and let it ring
                           // as you keep on singing!
Nights when we sang like a heavenly choir 
       G                       A (same as the others)
                                        D
Of the life and the time of the mull of kintyre. 

D
Mull of kintyre 
   G                       D
Oh mist rolling in from the sea,
             G 
My desire is always to be here
   D
Oh mull of kintyre 

Smiles in the sunshine 
And tears in the rain 
Still take me back to where my memories remain 
Flickering embers growing higher and higher 
As they carry me back to the mull of kintyre 

Mull of kintyre 
Oh mist rolling in from the sea, 
My desire is always to be here 
Oh mull of kintyre 

Mull of kintyre 
Oh mist rolling in from the sea, 
My desire is always to be here 
Oh mull of kintyre

The song seems simple enough and the basic changes presented here are OK.

But the repeated key changes, which make the arrangement special are left out here: The song starts in A switches to D for the first bagpipe solo and stays in D for the next verse and chorus; it is then led back to A for the last verse and the following chorus and goes back to D again for the final chorus and the coda. One wishes, there was at least ONE tab on this site which featured a correct representation of this beauty.

The song is assigned to the wrong artist here: It was released by Wings and is a real band effort, too (written by Denny Laine and Paul McCartney).

Nope. From a live version which Paul played in D and did this exact progression (No bagpipes included. All solo and crowd was singing along) So it's not wings, it does not start in A and it is absolutely correct as I was watching a recording I made myself while tabbing a song I know by heart.

Lucky you! Your tab, however, did not indicate that this is a different version than the one commonly known.
