Dust In The Wind Tab

   
Dust In The Wind
by: Kansas


This is 100% accurate, i'm completly sure about this!!! There are no mistakes
so try it!


The whole song is played with finger picking and that's why i thought it is 
the first thing to learn from it:
e --------
B 0----0--
G ---0---0
D --0---0-
A 0---0---
E --------
Repeat till you can play it with your eyes closed.

Then the rest is easy.  For the introduction here you have a tip:
trough the introduction the 2nd string (B) makes something like this:
(the finger picking will aumaticaly do it, you don't have to worry about this)

B 1--0--3
(X6)

But as you play it you wont even notice about it

Then, here are the chords:
          (EADGBe)
C         (x3201x)
Cmaj7     (x3200x)
Cadd3     (x3203x)
Asus2     (x0220x)
Asus4     (x0223x)
Am        (x0221x)
G/B       (x2003x)
G         (3x000x)
Dm7       (xx0211)
D/F#      (2x023x)
Am/G      (3x221x)
Am add9   (x0750x)
G/A       (x0570x)
F(#11)/A  (x0350x)
F6(#11)/A (x0353x)

For G, D/F# and Am/G the finger picking is played like this:

e ----------
B 0------0--
G ---0-----0
D --0-----0-
A ----------
E 0----0----

And for Dm7 it is played like this:

e 0------0--
B ---0-----0
G --0-----0-
D 0----0----
A ----------
E ----------

This is the last step:
Right when a paragraph is about to start there is an alteration in the finger
picking:
Example when the first sentence in a paragraph finishes: "#"

  Am             $ C             $ is G/B 
e ------------------
B 1------1--1--1-3-1
G ---2-----2--2-----
D --2-----2--2------
A 0----0----0--0-2-3
E ------------------

After the introduction it is only: "@"
  Am   $ C (starting the paragraph)
e --------
B 1--1-3-1
G --2-----
D -2------
A 0--0-2-3
E --------


But after the first Chorus it is played like this: *

  Am                $ C             $ is G/B 
e ---------------------
B 0h1----1----0h1---3-1
G -----2----2----------
D ----2----2-----------
A -0----0------0----2-3
E ---------------------

*********************************Chords*********************************

For the introduction play:
C Cmaj7 Cadd9 C
Asus2 Asus4 Am Asus2
Cadd9 C Cmaj7 Cadd9
Am Asus2 Asus4 Am (in the last Am play directly alteration "@")


(1st paragraph)
    C   G/B Am     Am
I close my eyes,
G           Dm7            Am               Am
Only for a moment and the moment's gone. (here you play the alteration "#" instead of both Am)
C   G/B   Am    Am
All my dreams,
G               Dm7       Am      Am
Pass before my eyes a curiosity.


(chorus)
D/F#  G           Am  Am/G
     Dust in the wind,
D/F#             G           Am
All they are is dust in the wind

(play this "*" when Am is said over "wind" at the end of the chorus)

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/k/kansas/dust_in_the_wind_tab_ver_3.html ]
(2nd paragraph)
C    G/bB Am   Am
Same old song,
G               Dm7        Am          Am (here you play "#" again instead of the Am's)
Just a drop of water in an endless sea,
C   G/B Am  Am
All we do,
G               Dm7               Am         Am
Crumbles to the ground tho' we refuse to see.


(2nd chorus)
D/F#  G           Am  Am/G
     Dust in the wind,
D/F#           G          Am  Am      Amadd9   Amadd9   G/A G/A     F(#11)/A F(#11)/A
All we are is dust in the wiiiiii---iiiiiiiiiiiiiiind, ooooooooh ho hooooooooooooo.


Here there is an instrumental part with the following chords:

Amadd9 Amadd9 G/A G/A
F(#11)/A F(#11)/A F6(#11)/A F(#11)/A (it is not A mistake, the last chord here is F(#11)/A)
Repeat this another time

INTRODUCTION AGAIN (with te alteration included)


(and starts the last paragraph)
      C     G/B    Am   Am
(Now) Don't ha-ang o-on,
G                Dm7          Am            Am (here you play "#" again instead of the Am's)
Nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky.
    C    G/B  Am    Am
It slips A-awa-A-ay,
    G              Dm7           Am         Am
And all your money won't another minute buy.


(Last chorus)
D/F#  G           Am  Am/G
     Dust in the wind,
D/F#           G           Am                  Am/G
All we are is dust in the wind. (all we are is dust in the wind)
D/F#  G           Am                  Am/G
     Dust in the wind, (everything is dust in the wind)
D/F#           G           Am
Everything is dust in the wind


Instead of this last Am in "wind" keep playing this till the end:
e 0-------0-------0------
B 1---1---0---0---3---3--
G --2---2---2---2---2---2
D -2---2---2---2---2---2-
A 0--0----0--0----0--0---
E -----------------------

And in the instrumental part there is a very little alteration in the pickin that
you can practice after you've learned all the song:

  Amadd9  Amadd9  G/A    G/A
e ------------0--------------0--
B 0---0---0-------0---0--0------
G --5---5---5---5---7---7--7---7
D -7---7---7---7---5---5--5---5-
A 0--0----0--0----0--0---0--0---
E ------------------------------

(not for corrections, there can't be any, I'm not joking, just for opinion)
I have Life By The Drop from Stevie Ray Vaughan too so ask me for it
And I have a video that shows a hand playing this and Life Bye The Drop just if
you want to know how it is played correctly.
