GUIDE  

These pages are written with the assumption that if you are looking up chords on the Net then you must play guitar. Therefore I assume you know that a guitar has six strings, named from fat to thin: E, A, D, G, B and E. You need to know this to be able to read the chord charts and the tab.

CHORDS:
These are laid out with the name of the chord to the left of the chord diagram. The diagram indicates the names/notes of the strings on the top row: EADGBE (fat to thin) and the fret number to be played on the line next to the chord name. 0 indicates it should be open and X means it isn't played.

TAB:
The tab is done the same as in most books. The lines represent the strings horizontally with the thinest at the top. The numbers on the strings represent the fret to be played. I can't represent timing so I just write the notes and you have to figure it out for yourself. The backing chords that go with the phrases, if there are any, are written along the line above the tab.

      4v - Vibrato.
      5vv - Heavy vibrato.

I am trying to keep all the songs as close to their original keys as possible. Sometimes this makes them a bit unplayable on the guitar, but if you want to transpose them, I'll leave that to you. I'll try and suggest whether I think they used a capo or not.
