Here's my take on 50 ways.  It sounds dead on to me.  If you have
any questions about it, drop me a line.


50 Ways to Leave Your Lover    Paul Simon
---------------------------    ----------

verse:

Intro is just one time through on just guitar (and snare).

The B7 with the passing C note is played with a mini-barre using
the index finger on an otherwise standard B7 chord. (that is, finger
a B7 and then flatten your index finger to get the C).

E-0-----2-----0------2-2---0-----2-----5-----2-2---------------

D-2-----0-----2------1-1---2-----2-----2-----
A-2-----------3------2-2---2-----0-----2-----
E-0------------------------0-----------0-----

chorus: (no attempt to show the rhythm here)

Note - I have been told that the G should just have G's and D's so
that it is ambiguous whether it's major or minor, though it's always
sounded minor to me.  I put the emphasis on the bass notes when
playing to get the effect.

G-4-----7-----9----------     REPEAT
