Seagull  Bad Company

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

SEAGULL - Bad Company
 
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

from the album "Bad Co." released in 1974
Tabbed by: Kevin Buzby for http://www.ultimate-guitar.com
E-mail: kjlee@bu.edu
AIM: kjlee2112
Tuning: Standard EADGBe
*corrected 9 Feb 05*: In the outro at the Bb, I had B notes notated instead of Bb. My apologies! :)
Notes: I saw the previous tabs didn't have the picking progressions or the
correct ending, so I've decided to do that because without the correct picking
or strumming for the verses, it just doesn't sound right. Any questions, just
email me or send me an instant message and I'll be happy to talk to ya or clear
something up. Thanks!
Directly above the tab there are "d"'s and "u"'s. The "d"'s mean downstroke,
and the "u"'s mean upstroke. Play the hammered C note on the A string with
your pinky, but hold the D chord at the same time, and use your index finger
to hammer the B, and let the open G string ring, instead of fretting the A note.
**A note on the strumming-- the down down, up up pattern stays pretty constant
throughout the song--save the refrains--and it is key if you want to give this
song some justice. Yes, it's an easy song, but if you don't strum it right,
it'll sound all mushy and crappy. It's a pretty song, so keep it that way! ;)
Intro(and verses, really):
[(D)] [(D)] [(D/C)] [(D/B)] 
[D] [D] [u] [u] [D] [D] [u] [u] [D] [D] [u] [u] [D] [D] [u] [u]

Verses:
The guitar follows the above format, for the most part. Listen to the song, and
you will hear where the D chord is extended and shortened in the beginning of the
intro/verse progression above. Sorry if that sounds confusing, but just listen
to the song, and you'll understand what I mean.
Intro:
Above progression goes six times before verses start(vocal adlibs over guitar
progression)
Verse 1:
[D]Seagull you fly[D/C], across [D/B]the horizon
[D]Into the m[D/C]isty m[D/B]ornin' sun

[D]Is this rea[D/C]lly the[D/B] end of the worl[D]d?
[D]Seagull you m[D/C]ust have k[D/B]nown for a long ti[D]me
[D/C]The sh[D/B]ape of things to come
Chorus 1:
(Chords below are just strummed, no picking progression until the end)
[D]Now you [D]fly
T[D]hrough the [A]sky
[C]Never [G]asking [D]why
[D]And you [D]fly
[D]All a[A]ro[Asus4]und[A]
Till [C]somebody

(vocal adlib over intro progression x4)
Verse 3:
[D]Seagull you fly[D/C], acr[D/B]oss the horizon

Verse 4/Outro:
(intro progression w/variation played over all words until outro chordal progression)
Intro w/variation:
[(D)]  
 
 |--2---2---3p2-3p2------2---2---2--------2---2---2---|
 |--3---3---3---3--------3---3---3--------3---3---3---|

 |-------------------0h3~~~~~~~~~~~~~~0h2~~~~~~~~~~~~-|
 |----------------------------------------------------|

(this progression is played once for every line of lyric below, and there are 12
lines of lyric, so it is played 12 times.)
Seagull you fly
Seagull you fly away
And you fly away today
And you fly away tomorrow
And you fly away
Leave me to my sorrow
Mmmm hmmm mmmmmmm
Seagull go on and fly
Mmmm hmmm mmmmmmm
Fly to your tomorrow
Leave me to my sorrow
Haaa aahhh ahhh yaaaahaaa
(After this last line, the following is played, then directly segues into the outro)
 
 |--2---2---2p3-3p2------2---2---2--------2---2---2---|
 |--3---3---3---3--------3---3---3--------3---3---3---|
 |--0h2-2---2---2--------2---2---2--------2---2---2---|
