                             MAKING PLANS FOR NIGEL - XTC
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Tyler J
Email: full_metal_orange AT hotmail DOT com

Tuning: Standard


Artist: XTC
Album: Drums And Wires (1979)

This is a fantastic song by XTC from their 1979 album “Drums And Wires”. Just a note
I did not write this tab in essence but I fixed it up, added information on the chords that
not commonly known on guitar and fixed up the song form and placement of the chords. 
I am told that the original tab for this was not written for guitar but for piano, so
explains the complicated chords.

Anyway, enjoy!

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. Bridge is clearly wrong, Chords C, G6 and D?G are false. several chords need to be looked at in the solo .
