MY GOD
Jethro Tull
from: Aqualung, 1971

        Transcribed by:
          brockman@udavxb.oca.udayton.edu (Bob Brockman)
          Corrections welcome (please email) - Thanks.

Notes:
        1. On the Aqualung album, a lot of the guitar is covered over
           by the strong piano parts.  I gleaned most of the guitar
           background from a bootleg recording on which this cut
           consists pretty much of Ian Anderson and acoustic guitar.
           Might be a little different from what's played on the
           album.

        2. My naming of a couple of the more bizarre chords might be
           off; if my ignorance is showing, someone let me know
           (gently) where I'm all wet.

        3. The lyrics below are different in 2-3 places from the ones
           printed in the album liner notes; this happens in spots
           where I'm pretty sure the liner notes are off.

Verse 1:

Part 1: This part can either be strummed (muting both E and e)
        or finger-picked.  The Aqualung album version seems to
        be mostly strumming, but it's almost overpowered by the
        piano part once that starts.  On the bootleg, Anderson
        finger-picks it, and it sounds really nice.  If you do
        finger-pick it, throwing in a little of the high 'e'
        string sounds good -- play with it and see.



   Am  B7addE/A     DmaddE/A  E7/A  Am
e|--0-------------------------4-----0-----|   Repeated twice as intro,
B|-10--0------------6---------5----10-----|   before piano line begins.
G|--9--8------------7---------4-----9-----|   Then repeated throughout
D|-10--7------------7---------0----10-----|   first part of each verse.
A|--0--0--------0---0---------0-----0-----|   See below for timing.
E|----------------------------------------|


        
        Riff #1
e|--------------------------|      This riff replaces the Am - B7addE/A etc.
B|--------------------------|      chord progression for the remainder of
G|--------------------------|      the verse.  There are a couple of minor
D|--------------------------|      variations here and there, very simple.
A|--7--6------5-3-----------|
E|---------------5-0-3-5----|
