Subject: TAB: Lay Down Sally (Eric Clapton et al.)

 
   I posted this recently, but it is improved in some points.
(Anyone tried to transpose the D-Bassline and chord two frets up
without breaking her/his fingers?)

Here we go (lyrics from vacs.uwp.edu):

               LAY DOWN SALLY
   (Eric Clapton, Marcy Levy & George Terry)



Basic pattern:
It is possible to play it with the left thumb and middle finger and a
full A chord on the higher strings. They may be strummed occasionally.
The best way to play it is using a plectron and middle finger with the
right hand. Transpose the first two bars to D also. The bar 3 and 4
contain the catch phrase that is only played over A.

Guitar solo over A major (nothing more). It is not complete up to the very
end. I improvise on or stop with the sequence written down leading to A.

I take no liability for the health of your left hand playing bass
and chords together. It works for me.
