Over the rainbow   Various Artists

Here's my version of Over The Rainbow, as done on Tape-II.  Actually, this
tab has a few extra notes, mostly on the 2nd & 4th beats of many measures.
On the tape, I just muted the strings on those beats.  

BTW, some of the melody is a half-note and about a half-beat off the
actual tune.  (mostly around the last line of the verses)  Minor
adjustments can be made if someone feels the need to sing along. ;)

-Joe.

Hi Dean -

Thanks for the comments.  Regarding 'over the rainbow'... I fingerpick the
whole thing.  If there are 5 strings, I do include my pinky for picking.
The only time I strum is in the 1st bar of the 4th verse.  (actually, it's
more like banging with the backs of several nails.)

And yes, I do use my left thumb a lot: for the 13th chords, the m7th chords
(the ones that are a straight barre), the Bb9 (on the 1st fret), and
probably some others.  

The left-thumb does take getting used to, but I'm at a point where I
probably use it too much (eg: the m7th chords).  It's just a lazy habbit
now;  I'm kind of lazy when it comes to barring.

hope this helps.
-Joe.

OK, append away.  But have the fans keep the cards & letters coming in
anyway.
