Greendale Tab

   
Album: Greendale
Artist: Neil Young
Tabbed by: John Passalacqua
Screen Name: crappy_acoustic

(I took a long time figuring this out and then transcribing it and (as you can see) it got really screwed up when transferring it 
to a different computer.  Sorry, maybe someone can fix it.)
Keep in mind while reading the tab that I didn't bother to write out the number of times 
play each chord or how to pick it or anything.  Since it's so easy to get by listening to 
the cd, I just gave a general idea of how the riff goes, which may change slightly within 
the song, cause it's live in the studio and I don't think Neil plays exactly the same 
thing every time.  I think it's very easy to understand the way I did it though.  


Falling from Above

Intro (also used as fills here and there)

Leave the Driving

the entire song is basically just slight variations of these chords.
e|--1-1-0-0---2--|
b|--1-1-1-1---3--|
g|--2-2-0-0---2--|
d|--3-3-2-2---0--|
a|--3-3-3-3-----|
d|----------0---|

Carmichael

back to standard tuning

these 2 chords are the whole song.  Hammer on the bass notes every now and then.
e|--0--3--|
b|--2--0--|
g|--2--0--|
d|--2--0--|
a|--0--2--|
e|-----3--|

e|-----------------------------|



Bandit

Haven't figured this one out.  It's an acoustic song, (obviously), and I'm pretty sure its
in standard C tuning, but I don't know anything about that so I can't tab it.  Anyone else who 
does know C tuning, give it a shot, it doesn't sound too complicated.  Plus, I'd like to learn 
it.



Grandpa's Interview

dropped D tuning (for the rest of the album)
 
          
e|----0--0--1--0--|
b|----3--1--1--1--|
g|----0--2--2--0--|
d|----2--2--3--2--|
a|----3--0--3--3--|
d|-------------3-----|

Those three chords are the whole song, except for some improvised solos.  Obvviously you play 
each chord more that once, and you emphasize the bass notes here and there.  Also that F chord
I'm not 100% sure on.  It sounds right though.  Emphasize the bottom three strings.


Bringing Down the Dinner

This song is done on a pump organ, but it's just F and C chords.


Sun Green

dropped D

e|----2--1--0--|
b|----3--1--1--|

d|--3\5/3-0-----------------------------------|
a|--3\5/3-0-------------------------------------|
d|--3\5/3-0-------------------------------------|

when the "The Imitator's were playing.." verse starts, it switches to this for a minute
