Tabbed by: Dieu des hommes (Gregory Collins)

Artist: Yes
Song: Roundabout
Album: Fragile

Standard Tuning: e-B-G-D-A-E
Difficulty: Intermediate

I haven't seen a decent full tab up, so I thought I'd share the tab
I made for myself to remember the song. It's all tabbed by ear so
I can't promise 100% accuracy. I also apologise for the lack of timing
notations as this is the first tab I've shared. So just keep your ear
on the song and play along to get the timing. I hope you enjoy!

If there's any suggestions e-mail me at Rechiau@hotmail.com

[Optional 3rd Verse]

This isn't actually played, since the guitar rests during this verse,
however if you're playing on your own you can still play it to keep the rhythm going

[Outro]

It's hard to hear this part, but he's certainly playing an Em chord various times,
just listen to the song and play the chord with whatever technique you find easiest.

Great tab! It sounds great either way, but in the first verse with the weird harmonic bit, I like to play it like this.

Awesome tab! One thing I find is that it's easier to play the intro 'p3' note on the 8th fret of the B string as below. Sounds the same but keeps you from having to drop your hand all the way back to the 3rd fret.
