This is my version of this wonderfully gorgeous song since I donÕt like the version in the guitar book.  I think itÕs more accurate to what the artist is really playing, so tell me what YOU think.


KathyÕs Song (as heard on ÒGreatest HitsÓ)

Words/Music by Paul Simon
Tablature by John Nimis

After the second and fourth verses he does this Dsus thing:

And then right back to the filler/intro lick.




(Back to Dsus)



(Really cool guitar solo verse, which I may tab later...)

Note:  At the end of the third line of each verse, there is a walkup from G to C that Paul Simon loves to do (Homeward Bound, Boxer, etc...) and he alternates from the single note walk I put in the tab at that spot and a more common (and cooler) walkup:

E ----------------|0---------------|----------------|----------------|  
B ----0---1---3---|----------1-----|----------------|----------------|  
G ----------------|------0-------0-|---etc...-------|----------------|

Ah, sweet poetry... Love and beauty to all,

Kathy's Song

Words/Music by Paul Simon
Tablature by Frederik Esser

This tab is developed from the one by John Nimis. I don't claim it to be
better, but it's certainly a lot closer to the recorded version (on sound of
silence).
