April Come She Will  Simon & Garfunkel

Here's the TAB for Simon & Garfukel's "April Come She Will". Play the
section between the double bars and "o"s three times through, these marks are
supposed to look like the symbol to repeat. However, when you get to the final
four measures the third time, skip the ones marked "\\1,2\\" and continue on to
"\\3\\". To match the recording, try using a capo at the first or second
fret, I can't recall which. The chord shapes are all actually fairly basic,
use:
G/D (xx0787), G6/D (xx0780), D (xx0775), G (3x0003), C/G (3x2013), Am
(x02210), Emadd4/G (3x220x), Fmaj7 (1x221x) (for this one use either your thumb
or barre an Am shaped chord to get the bottom note), Em (022000), C (x3201x)
and Dadd4 (x5403x).

June, she'll change her tune.
In restless walks she'll prowl the night.
July, she will fly
And give no warning to her flight.
August, die she must.
The autumn winds blow chilly and cold.
September, I'll remember
A love once new has now grown old.

From: R P Kent
Subject: TAB: April Come She Will by Simon and Garfunkel
April Come She Will
 
 ------------------- 

Words and Music by Paul Simon
As perormed by Simon and Garfunkel off Sounds of Silence.
Tabbed and transcribed by Rich Kent r.p.kent@dur.ac.uk
Capo I
 
 ------

The intro and the first part of the verse has a bouncy triplet feel.
This made it difficult to tab the exact rhythm. Watch out for the D in
verse 3 it is a C shape barred at the second fret....
Listen to the recording for the rhythm if the tab is hard to follow!
