Needle and the damage done (2)
------------------------------


One of the first songs I ever learned on guitar!

This is not identical to what Neil plays on the record (his C/F
section is very slightly different) but your audience won't pick it.
Especially with your wailing emotional vocal over the top (so to speak).


(^H means hammer-on where indicated)

                     The Needle and the Damage Done
                    by Neil Young, on Harvest (1972)
 
 
 Intro and half-way interlude without vocals:
 [I play this as an extremely regular alternate bass/high picking with
  either a flat pick or two fingers; all notes (or pairs of notes in the
  hammer-ons and slides) in what I outline here should have the same
  duration]
 
    D               D/C             D/B             D/Bb

 Verses:
 [Note how the first strip of tab is identical; what changes is the way
  the C and F chords are played (simplified) and the passage from the
  concluding E chord to the D chord that starts off the next verse.]

 notes: this is only a basic outlay - there are lots of variations you can do:
 hammering on or not, using the 5th string (the root of the chord) or the
 open 4th string (D) as the bass note, or to alternate.
 eg (4th)0,0,0,0;(5th)3,(4th)0,0,0;(5th)2,(4th)0,0,0;(5th)1,(4th)0,0,0. 
 experiment! enjoy!
