Subject: TAB: Gold To Me  by  Ben HARPER

Gold To Me
----------
Artist: Ben Harper
Album: Fight For Your Ming
Transcribtion & Tab: Briac PILPRE 

Tuning: DADDAD (from high to low, or low to high, as you want!)

 Okay for this one I'll use a chord-like presentation, but when
you see the chord name, you'll have to do a slide up to the chord
(i.e. if it's a G chord, you'll have to slide from F# to G). It's
only for the verse...
 For the chorus the strumming technique is really weird. You've got
to rest your guitar on your lap, strum in dead note and lay your slide
on every start of measure (I don't know if I'm very clear, but, anyway,
listen to the record to catch the rythm)
 Also, I know there's some mistakes in this transcribtion, so any 
comment/ correction/ help in any way would be appreciated!)

so here's the chords for this song:
      D A D D A D
F     3 3 3 3 3 3
G     5 5 5 5 5 5
D XII 121212121212
A     7 7 7 7 7 7

solo:
(You really need to play on an high action guitar with heavy strings
in order to avoid pull-of buzzes with the slide...)

And here's my poor attempt to transcribe the Bass part, which is
