>From Fred Lidskog  for providing these) in case you want to know what
that book has listed. Unfortunately, I don't think the transcription found
in this book is a very accurate one (as is the case with many
transcriptions in the "official" Oasis tab books) so you can try out these
chords if you wish, but you'll most likely agree with me that in most
cases the "official" book is incorrect.

Chords used:

Am      (x02210)
A7sus4  (x02030) or try (x05430) [official book: G/A  (x05433)]
Fmaj7/A (x03210)                 [official book: F/A  (x03211)]
C/B   	(x2x010)		 [official book: G/B  (x20003)]
C	(x32010)
D       (xx0232)
E	(022100)
E7	(020100)
F	(x33211)
G	(3x0033)

Intro:
-----

Here's my attempt at the intro. It may not be exactly how Noel's playing
it, but it sounds almost exactly the same. For a couple of other attempts
at how to play the intro, see the bottom of this transcription...

Chords used in intro:

Am 	(x02210)
Am/G#   (x02110)	[official book: Am(maj7/G#)   (4x2210)]
Am7     (x02010)	[official book: Am7/G	      (3x2210)]
Am/F#	(x04210)  	[official book: Am6/F#	      (2x2210)]
Fmaj7/A (x03210)	[official book: Fmaj7	      (1x2210)]
Am/D    (x00210)	[official book: D	      (xx0232)]
E7	(020100)

So here it goes:

Am   Am/G#   Am7    Am/F#   Fmaj7/A    Am/D    Am    E7     (repeat)

While the book has the intro like this:

Am   Am(maj7/G#)   Am7/G   Am6/F#   Fmaj7   D  G   Am    E7

Verse 1
-------
Am
Take the time to make some sense

   A7sus4
of what you want to say
    Fmaj7/A	      A7sus4         Am      E7
and cast  your words away   upon the waves

Am
Sail them home with acquiesce
     A7sus4
On a ship of hope today
    Fmaj7/A       A7sus4
And as they land upon the shore
D                F
Tell them not to fear no more
G                                E   E7
Say it loud, and sing it proud today

And then

Chorus:
-------
C
Dance if you wanna dance
C/B
Please brother take a chance
Am
You know they're gonna go
G		     F   G  C            G
Which way they wanna go
		     All we know is that we don't
C
Know how it's gonna be
C/B
Please brother let it be
Am
Life on the other hand
G                   F      G
won't make you understand
		      Am          A7sus4   Fmaj7/A   A7sus4   Am   E7
We're all part of the masterplan

Am   A7sus4  Fmaj7/A   A7sus4  D   F

G                                E    E7
Say it loud, and sing it proud today


Verse 2
-------
I'm not saying right is wrong
It's up to us to make
The best of all the things that come our way

'Cos everything that's been has passed
The answer's in the looking glass
There's four and twenty million doors
Down life's endless corridor
Say it loud and sing it proud today

And then

CHORUS

After chorus the chords:  C  B/C  Am  G  are repeated for a while.


OUTRO   (same as intro)


A few more attempts at intro/outro: (NOTE: tab below doesn't show the
rythym that should be used, just the chord forms)

Subject: Masterplan Chords (There and Then-Video)

Here is my interpretation of Masterplan from the "there and then" video.
I've tried to get the intro chords for this off the video, but there are
just not enough guitar shots, so I'll just give ya what I got.

Chords:
Am   (xx2210)
X    (xx4030)  I have no idea what this chord is, so it's X for now
Am7  (xx2010)
E    (022100)
C    (x32010)
G    (320001)
F    (x33211)
(slide between the chords, don't leave pauses and it sounds much better)


Am                                 X
Take the time to make some sense, of what you wanna say....

Am7           X               Am                  E
And cast your words away upon the waves......

Am                            X
Sail them home with acquiesce on a ship of hope today....

Am7              X               E                Am7
And as they land upon the shore, tell them not to fear no more....

E               G                E
So say it loud and sing it proud todayyyy!!!

Chorus:
========

C                        G
Dance if ya wanna dance, please brother take a chance...

Am                       G
You know they're gonna go, which way they wanna go.

F         G            C                Am
All we know is that we don't know....

C                       G
Just how it's gonna be, please brother let it be

Am                      G
Life on the other hand, won't make them understand,

C                 G                Am
We're all part of the Masterplan.....

The song continues on following the same notation until the end when the
last part goes:

C         G           C  G  C  G
We're all part of the masterplan

**Hope this helps.  If any one knows the intro (Which is somewhere down
in the 4th and 5th fret), lemme know.**  Mail me at: chiller@dmv.com

Subject: The Masterplan

 I was messing about on the guitar the other day and i think i've got
Masterplan down almost exactly. Have a go yourselves and see wot you think.
Here are the "weird" chords used (in the form of eBGDAE):

Am/sus2 (005770)
G#maj7  (045660)
Gmaj7   (034550)
F#maj7  (023440)
Fmaj7   (012330)
Em7/sus2(000000)

 The intro basically starts at the Am/sus2 and descends:
G#maj7 Gmaj7 F#maj7 Em7/sus2 Am E

Am              Gmaj7
Take the time...say

Fmaj7           Gmaj7   Am       E
Cast your words away....waves

(same again till..)

Fmaj7       Gmaj7   D        F
As they land upon...tell...to fear no more

G          E
Say it...today

Then the chorus goes as what is generally agreed to be right, i.e
C G
Am G
Fmaj7 G etc....

Hope this helps!

the archive. There is also one chord in the verse played higher than
tabbed so here goes..

OUTRO   (same as intro)

(Thanks to Fred Lidskog  for the awesome tab that
made
me want to figure out the way Noel plays this song..)
From swede@email.unc.edu Thu Mar 19 01:33:22 1998

Subject: The Masterplan (with solos and fills)

"The Masterplan"
Performed by Oasis
From the single "Wonderwall" on Sony/Creation Records
Music by: N. Gallagher
Lyrics by: N. Gallagher
-------------
Tabbed by Fred Lidskog 

This is another one of my favorites by Oasis, truly an epic song and
another where our lads are accompanied by a string and horn section.
There's alot of weird chords used in this song, and the chords and
fills are sort  of hard to hear (especially in the intro) because of the
string section, so keep an open mind when you see this transcription on
paper, because if you play the song, you'll hear these chords are pretty
much the right ones. Written next to some of the chords I use for this
song are the chords listed in the official Oasis B-sides guitar book
(thanks to Paul Das  for providing these) in case you want
to know what that book has listed. Unfortunately, I don't think the
transcription found in this book is a very accurate one (as is the case
with many transcriptions in the "official" Oasis tab books) so you can try
out these chords if you wish, but you'll most likely agree with me that in
most cases the "official" book is incorrect.

Chords used:

	 EADGBe
Am      (x02210)
A7sus4  (x02030) or try (x05430) [official book: G/A  (x05433)]
Fmaj7/A (x03210)                 [official book: F/A  (x03211)]
C/B   	(x2x010)		 [official book: G/B  (x20003)]
C	(x32010)
D       (xx0232)
E	(022100)
E7	(020100)
F	(x33211)
G	(3x0033)

Tab Key:

b = bend (7b8 means bend string at 7th fret to make approximately the note
    the string would make if played at the 8th fret with no bend
r = release bend
h = hammer on
s = slide (a quick slide, sounds like one note)
/ = a slide where you play the first note, THEN slide to the second
() = harmonics, lightly touch the string directly above the fret listed
     and then pick the string

Intro:
-----

Chords used in intro:

Am 	(x07500)
Am/G#   (x06500)	[official book: Am(maj7/G#)   (4x2210)]
Am7     (x05500)	[official book: Am7/G	      (3x2210)]
Am/F#	(x04500)  	[official book: Am6/F#	      (2x2210)]
Fmaj7/A (x03500)	[official book: Fmaj7	      (1x2210)]
Am/D    (x00500)	[official book: D	      (xx0232)]
E7	(020100)

So here it goes:

  Am   Am/G#      Am7       Am/F#     Fmaj7/A    Am/D
e------------(12)-----(12)-------(19)-----------------|
B---------------------------(12)----------------------|
G-----------------------------------------------------|
D-----------------------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------------|

  Am		 E7
e---------0-----------------------------------------------|
B-------3---3---------------------------------------------|
G-------------0-------------------------------------------|
D---2s4---------------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------|

THEN: Repeat intro chords one more time through, with the second guitar
picking notes from the chords in a kind of random pattern, but which can
basically played like this:

  Am     	         Am/G#			Am/G
e------------0----------------------0---------------------|
B--------------0----------------------0-------------------|
G----5--4--5-----5----------5--4--5-----5-----------------|
D-7----------------7--7--6----------------6--6--5--etc.---|
A---------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------|

The book has the intro like this:

Am   Am(maj7/G#)   Am7/G   Am6/F#   Fmaj7   D  G   Am    E7

Verse 1
-------
Am
Take the time to make some sense
   A7sus4
of what you want to say
    Fmaj7/A	      A7sus4         Am      E7
and cast  your words away   upon the waves

Am
Sail them home with acquiesce
     A7sus4
On a ship of hope today
    Fmaj7/A       A7sus4
And as they land upon the shore
D                F
Tell them not to fear no more
G                                E   E7
Say it loud, and sing it proud today       And then

Chorus:
-------
C
Dance if you wanna dance
C/B

G		     F   G  C            G

We're all part of the masterplan

NOTE: This little musical interlude has a guitar solo part being played
backwards. The following is that part tabbed as it sounds backwards.

There's four and twenty million doors
Down life's endless corridor
Say it loud and sing it proud today

Subject: Masterplan

Here is my attempt at tabbing Masterplan, I think it is relatively close. I
don't know the names of several of the chords but from watching MTV Unplugged
I can tell you they are very close.
Here is the intro:
The chords are basically moveable E chords for the entire intro:
the number before each "E" will indicate which fret to play the E on.
Intro: Am, 5E, 4E, 3E, 2E, 4E, Am, E
Seems easy huh? well I'm pretty sure that it is something very close to that
if not exactly.
Verse:
Am                                                     4E
Take the time to make some sense of what you want to say
2E                       4E                           Am  E
Cast your words away upon the waves.
Am                                          4E
Sail them with acquiesce on a ship of hope today.
        2E          4E                        D*                     F
And as they land upon the shore, tell them not to fear no more.
G                                          E
Say it loud and sing it proud today!
C                                            G
Dance if you want to dance, please brother take a chance.
Am                                       G                                F
You know they're gonna go which way they wanna go.
      G      C             G                 C
All we know is that we don't know, how it's gonna be
G                                  Am                           G
F
Please brother let it be, life on the other hand won't make you understand.
G                                         Am
We're all part of a masterplan.
then this progression: 4E, 2E, 4E, D*, F
G                                           E
Say it loud and sing it proud today!

Next verse is the same as before.

After Noel stops singing, the progression is C, G, Am, G (he is actually using
falsetto here on Unplugged). Break down for outro is: F, G, E(After he stops
falsetto). The outro is alot like the intro, so listen to it and figure it out
for yourself.
That's all folks.
Thanks.
