Song: Imagine
Author: John Lennon

* Here you go, y'all at guitartabs.cc. A couple of people threw out tabs for
  "Imagine," so I thought I'd do the same. I play the song, and people don't
  mind that it's on guitar. This is how *I* play it. Slight differences from
  the other tab(s) found here on this site, but I don't try to closely match
  a piano on a guitar. They're not the same instrument, so you gotta make up
  a new way to play it.

  Anyways, let's see what weird stuff I got here... chords are slightly diff
  on the guitar from the piano... this one may be easier to play... for Riff
  C and Riff D I added dumb 'v' and '^' marks to show how I strum them,  and
  some chords are missing 'cuz I couldn't fit them above the lines.

  In Riff C if you prefer to just slide your fingers up to play a big G(III)
  chord, go ahead. It's an option. Also, for Riff D, if you don't like barre
  chords ... well, can't do anything about the F... but you can play an open
  G intead if you like. Not a big deal at all.  I interchange G's and what I
  called a G5 in here,  and the barred G, depending on my mood at the time,
  so I guess you can too. Have fun, and think about life with no boundaries.
  It's fun and it frees up your mind and spirit. -mjv
