Jethro Tull tabs
Here's a quick sketch of the acoustic bits of Wind-Up. It seems to
have only one place where Andersonianism occurs, so there's not much
point in tabbing the whole shebang (at least, not from the acoustic
guitar point of view).
(transcribed by Paul Tarvydas)
Open, standard tuning (i.e. no capo!).
Single notes are shown as S/F, where S is the string and F is the fret.
The Andersonianism occurs on the last word of each (extended) line of
the verse. He comes off the D chord straight into an Asus4, with the
pinky holding down the 2/3 suspended note, in front of the 3rd finger
on the 2nd fret. He strums down once, then lifts both the pinky and
the 3rd finger off of the 2nd string and strums up, then replaces the
3rd finger on the 2nd fret and strums down-up. He then slides to his
Em7 fingering, pinning the 3rd finger on 2/3 ready for the D chord,
plays the little riff by lifting and placing the first finger. The
last note of the riff is the open 4th string - during this he sets up
the D fingering and then down-strums it.
