                                    Thanks to Jared White for
                                    the tuning



The tuning for this song is (from low to high) :

 D A D G D F#



If you prefer not to stress the top two strings too much, you 
can tune to C G C F C E instead, and use a capo on the 2nd fret.


I'll just TAB out the main shapes - it should be easy to see 
which bits go where as there are only two or three different bits.



Verse bit :
-----------

F#---7---7---7---7-----5---5---5---5------
D----7---7---7---7-----5---7---5---7-------
G----9---7---9---7-----7---5---7---5------- (repeats once)
D----7---7---7---7-----5---5---5---5-------
A----7---7---7---7-----5---5---5---5-----
D----7---7---7---7-----5---5---5---5------


Chorus :
--------

F#-----0--0--0----0--0--0------0--0---0--0------------
D------0--0--0----0--0--0------0--0---0--0------------
G------2--2--2----0--0--0--0---2--2---2--2------------
D------0--0--0----2--0--0--0---0--0---0--0-----------
A------0--0--0----0--0--2--0---0--0---0--0----------
D------0--0--0-------------0---0--0---0--0---------

It's a pink moon... yeah...it's a pink moon



F#--0-0--0-0-----------------------------------
D---0-0--0-0----------------------------------
G---0-0--0-0---etc------------------------------
D---2-2--2-2-------------------------------
A---2-2--2-2------------------------------
D---2-2--2-2--------------------------------

Pink pink pink pink .......


These bits repeat a few times - the only other section is
the instrumental bit where the piano comes in.

The chord sequence for this is :


F#--0--0-----0--0--------------0----------------
D---0--0-----0--0------0--0----0-----------------
G---2--2-----0--0------0--0----2----------------
D---0--0-----2--2------0--0----0--------------
A---0--0-----2--2------5--5----0-------------
D---0--0-----2--2------5--5----0---------------


That's about all ....

Hope you like it !

Here's my transcription of Pink Moon, please tell me if you think 
it's wrong!

Pink Moon - Nick Drake
=========

He uses DADGDF# tuning. If you want to avoid breaking too many 
strings try tuning to CGCFCE and using a capo at the 2nd fret. 

Introduction:-

F#||-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---||
D ||-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---||
G ||-2-2-2-0-0-0-0-0/2--.||
D ||-4-4-4-2-0-2-0-2/4--.||
A ||-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---||
D ||-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---||

Verse:-

||-7-7-7-7-7---5-5-5-5-5---||
||-7-9-7-9-7---5-7-5-7-5---||
||-7-7-7-7-7---5-5-5-5-5--.||
||-7-7-7-7-7---5-5-5-5-5--.||
||-7-7-7-7-7---5-5-5-5-5---||
||-7-7-7-7-7---5-5-5-5-5---||

Chorus:-

Introduction followed by:-

||-0-----0-----0-0-0-0-0-0------||
||-0-----0-----0-0-0-0-0-0------||
||-0-----2-----0-0-0-0-0-2-----.||
||-0-----4-----2-0-2-0-2/4-----.||
||-2-----0-----0-0-0-0-0-0------||
||-2-----0-----0-0-0-0-0-0------||

Solo:-
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/drake_nick/pink_moon_tab.html ]
||---------------|-----------------||
||---------------|-----------------||
||-2-------------|-0-----------2--.||
||-4-2-0---------|---4-2-0---0-0--.||
||-------4-2---2-|---------2-------||
||-----------5-2-|-----------------||

(let all the open strings ring during the solo)

I hope that makes sense... You'll have to work out the rhythm by 
playing along to the tape.

To help learn it, here are the chords used during the song. The 
numbers on the fretboards represent where you should put your fingers 
and the numbers correspond to which finger I use to play it 
comfortably (1=thumb, ... , 5=little finger). 

Intro:-

O O     O O      O O   O O O      O O O O O O  
===========      ===========      ===========
| | | | | |      | | | | | |      | | | | | |
|=|=|=|=|=|      |=|=|=|=|=|      |=|=|=|=|=|
| | | 2 | |      | | 4 | | |      | | | | | |
|=|=|=|=|=|      |=|=|=|=|=|      |=|=|=|=|=|
| | | | | |      | | | | | |      | | | | | |
|=|=|=|=|=|      |=|=|=|=|=|      |=|=|=|=|=|
| | 4 | | |      | | | | | |      | | | | | |
|=|=|=|=|=|      |=|=|=|=|=|      |=|=|=|=|=|


Verse:-

          |=|=|=|=|=|      |=|=|=|=|=|
7th fret  2 2 2 2 2 2      2 2 2 2 | 2
          |=|=|=|=|=|      |=|=|=|=|=|
          | | | | | |      | | | | 4 |
          |=|=|=|=|=|      |=|=|=|=|=|

And the same patterns at the 5th fret.

Chorus:-

    O O O O 
===========
| | | | | |
|=|=|=|=|=|
4 5 | | | |
|=|=|=|=|=|

Together with the intro chords.


Tabbed out by Mike Healey

Also, here's a copy of some info I got sent about his odd tunings...


I think I can help you out by relaying some information which helped 
me
out quite a bit with figuring out Nick Drake's guitar arrangements.
(I've never posted any of the tabs because it's too much of a pain to 
key in)
Nick Drake used six different altered tunings. They are as follows:
(1)DADGAF# (2)DADGDG (3)CGCFCE (4)DGDDAD (5)DADGDF# (6)DGDGAD
He often capoed, so this can make it a bit harder to figure out which 
tuning 
he is using. I also believe that tuning number 6 was a full tone 
lower on
some songs [sorry, I mean tuning #5! (CGCFCE). 
The tuning he used most often was tuning #5. This is the one he used 
on
"Which Will", "Parasite", "Hazey Jane"(I & II), "From the Morning", 
"Pink Moon", and "Northern Sky". Tuning #1 was used on "Place to Be".
Tuning #2 was used on "Fly". CGCFCE was used to play "Hanging on a 
Star".
Tuning #4 was used on "Road", and I believe it is used on "Things 
Behind
the Sun", though I am not sure of the latter fact. I THINK he uses 
tuning
#6 on "Day is Done", and he definitely uses it on "Clothes of Sand".
I also believe the lowered version of tuning #5 was used on "From the 
Morning"
and "Which Will".

As far as capo positions go, the ones I know are as follows: 
Place to Be [2nd fret], Parasite [2nd fret], Pink Moon [1st fret],
Northern Sky [1st fret], Fly [1st fret], Road [3rd fret], Clothes of 
Sand
[3rd fret], Day is Done [7th fret (I think)], Things Behind the Sun 
[6th fret
(I think)].

And that's about all I know. I picked up most of this stuff from a 
1988
article in Frets magazine, which helped me immensely. The rest I 
figured
out myself by transcribing Nick Drake's songs, or attempting to. I 
really
wish someone would publish a tab book of his stuff. But as I 
understand,
he never took the trouble to do this himself during his all too brief 
life,
and no one has bothered to do it since, probably because it wouldn't 
sell
millions of copies. I hope this info helps you. Let me know if you 
have
any questions.
                  Ethan H.
