On and On and On  Wilco

Found some rough tabulature on this song and decided to work it out as it?s not been
anywhere except the viachicago forum. This should be pretty close?
Piano intro:
e ??0 -??0
B ?8? x8 ?8? x8
G ?11? ?11?
D ?10? ?9?
If you?re a finger-picker you can alternate thumb, index, middle then ring (on the e) or
with the thumb. (I think the brushing sounds better). If you are a piano player, it's
F# G then E and B F# G then E. (This riff may change but I generally don't carry it
the beginning so... it's all yours to figure out).
CM7 x3200x x35500 8x998x
Bm7 x2400x x2403x x2003x x2423x 799777
Am7 x0201x 575555
G 32000x x2000x 355433
D xx0232 x5403x
I switch between these different voicings a lot so I figured I'd share them all Do what
think sounds best. I also play with a capo on 3, but that just fits my voice better,
are for original album tuning. Either way, great song. Hope someone finds this useful.
