 Corrections to existing TABS:


 


 1) Richard Cook's TAB (in D, capo on 2nd fret) lists the chords of the


 bridge as:


 


 [Dm]She ... any[G]where


 [Dm]I ... [G]chair.[A]


 


 which contains 2 errors. To be played in D the chords should be:


 


 [Dm]She ... any[G]where


 [Dm]I ... [Em7]chair[A7].


 


 2) Robert Hall's TAB (in E) lists the chords of the bridge as:


 


 [Am]She ... any[D]where


 [Am]I ... [D]chair [F#]---> verse (E riff above)


 


 which are in the wrong key. To be played in E the chords should be:


 


 [Em]She ... any[A]where


 [Em]I ... [Fm7]chair.[B7]

 notes:


 1. Spacing doesn't indicate timing - I just lined the tab up with the lyrics.


 2. Chords are tabbed for their first beat only. The D chord is strummed down,


 up, down. Note the hammer-on at the end of each measure.


 3. Holding the D chord, use your pinky for 3rd fret notes and index finger


 for 1st fret notes, middle finger for 3rd fret on the A string.


 4. Have an accompanist play along without a capo:

 This song is in E; you can play it in D with a capo, but


 I don't have one, so I figured out this version. It lets


 you play the rhythm and lead guitar parts at the same time:

 LYRICS: I once had a girl, or should I say, she once had me.


 She showed me her room. Isn't it good, Norwegian Wood?


 


 She asked me to stay, and she told me to sit anywhere.


 So I looked around, and I noticed there wasn't a chair.


 


 I sat on a rug, biding my time, drinking her wine.


 We talked until two, and then she said, it's time for bed.


 


 She told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh.


 I told her I didn't and crawled off to sleep in the bath.


 


 And, when I awoke, I was alone. This bird had flown.


 So, I lit a fire. Isn't it good, Norwegian Wood?


 


 

 
 --------------------------

 


 


 The sitar is the actual instrument used by


 George Harrison to play this song. It is


 the first Beatle's song where it is present.

 HOW TO SUBMIT FILES TO OLGA (THE ON-LINE GUITAR ARCHIVE)


 ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


 


 OLGA, the On-Line Guitar Archive, is a natural development of


 the guitar.tab newsgroups. The Archive provides a library of files that


 is more permanent than usenet and is easily accessible, and attempts to


 prevent repetition of work already done by the community.


 


 If you can educate others in how to play a song, type up


 the chords and/or tab and/or playing tip and send it to both the


 newsgroups *AND* the archive, and contribute to the community.


 


 It's very simple:


 


 Step 1: Before you submit, make sure of the following:


 Final That you have included the song name, artist's name


 Preparations and your own name (and if different, the transciber's name)


 


 If you can, include other information such as the name


 of the album from which the track comes, the name of the


 author of the words and music, details of the publisher


 and catalogue number, and notes on what effects are used


 and on how to play the music.


 


 Make sure that the file is 'all your own work'. If you


 use copyrighted material, it won't (knowingly) be


 archived.


 


 You should also check the archive to ensure that you


 are not duplicating material already there. If a chord


 or tab file already exists for the song, take it down


 and incorporate your material with it. Always credit


 the original author and mention what each of you has


 done. If the file is anonymous at the archive, you


 should nonetheless state that you used material from


 the archive, and if practicable, disclaim credit for


 the portions used.


 


 Step 2: The simplest method of submitting for all concerned is


 Submitting simply to email it to guitar@nevada.edu Use a subject


 line of the same form as you post to news, i.e.


 TAB: <songname> by <artistname>


 


 Alternatively, you can use ftp. If you don't know how,


 read the FAQ file posted to the guitar.tab newsgroups by


 Ryan Harding called 'The Ultimate Guide to the Tab Archives'.


 Use the 'put' command during an ftp session to


 ftp.nevada.edu/pub/guitar/incoming


 Please follow the instructions in the file READ_BEFORE_PUTTING


 N.B.: You can submit by ftp to the *nevada site only*.


 There are incoming directories at some of the other OLGA


 sites (for different purposes), but if you upload tab or


 chords to those sites they won't be archived at *any* site.


 


 Step 3: Files are processed and archived manually, so it can take


 Checking anywhere from 30 seconds to 2 weeks to archive your file.


 In practice, it never takes more than a week, so you can start


 checking if your file is at OLGA 4-7 days after submission.


 Note that the file filters down through the sites, and this


 may also take some time


 The best way to check is to read the INFO file posted to


 the guitar.tab newsgroups every Monday called 'OLGA WEEKLY


 INDEX'. The indexes are for the second previous week, so


 if the name of your file does not appear on this list


 one of the *three* Monday's after you submit it, contact


 guitar@nevada.edu and inquire politely as to its whereabouts.


 You can receive the WEEKLY INDEX and other OLGA notices by


 email. Write to rcwoods@alf2.tcd.ie to have your name added.


 


 Your file at OLGA:


 Any file archived becomes the property of the archive in so far as


 material extraneous to the musical content (the header and .sig) may


 be removed or edited. The author's name and e-mail address will always


 be retained if accompanying the file, along with any other information


 the archivists deem relevant.


 The archivists retain the right to modify or remove files as they see fit.


 In cases of duplication of a song, the archivists may remove a


 transcription of inferior quality.


 Copyright of work remains with the author of that work. Posting to usenet


 or to the archive implicitly gives permission for fair-use distribution.


 Requests to have files removed or modified should be made to the


 archivists by e-mail to guitar@nevada.edu.


 


 Additions/corrections to this file welcomed.

 Corrections to existing TABS:


 


 1) Richard Cook's TAB (in D, capo on 2nd fret) lists the chords of the


 bridge as:


 


 [Dm]She ... any[G]where


 [Dm]I ... [G]chair.[A]


 


 which contains 2 errors. To be played in D the chords should be:


 


 [Dm]She ... any[G]where


 [Dm]I ... [Em7]chair[A7].


 


 2) Robert Hall's TAB (in E) lists the chords of the bridge as:


 


 [Am]She ... any[D]where


 [Am]I ... [D]chair [F#]---> verse (E riff above)


 


 which are in the wrong key. To be played in E the chords should be:


 


 [Em]She ... any[A]where


 [Em]I ... [Fm7]chair.[B7]

 I looked around and I noticed there wasn't a chair.


 


 


 I sat on a rug, biding my time


 drinking her wine.


 We talked until two, and then she said


 it's time for bed.

 She told me she worked in the morning


 and started to laugh.


 I told her I didn't


 and crawled off to sleep in the bath.


 


 And, when I awoke, I was alone


 this bird had flown.


 So, I lit a fire, isn't it good


 Norwegian wood.

 notes:


 1. Spacing doesn't indicate timing - I just lined the tab up with the lyrics.


 2. Chords are tabbed for their first beat only. The D chord is strummed down,


 up, down. Note the hammer-on at the end of each measure.


 3. Holding the D chord, use your pinky for 3rd fret notes and index finger


 for 1st fret notes, middle finger for 3rd fret on the A string.


 4. Have an accompanist play along without a capo:

 This song is in E; you can play it in D with a capo, but


 I don't have one, so I figured out this version. It lets


 you play the rhythm and lead guitar parts at the same time:

 Accent the string listed below the word to bring out


 the melody. (c) means accent the whole chord. Use your


 smallest finger to hit the notes during "I once had a girl."
