The Story Behind the Tab:
A close friend of mine, who attended the Paul McCartney Tour 2005 in Orlando some time
ago, was yielding his report on the going-ons of the night. His enthusiasm captured my
interest, and so, I began to search for some of McCartney?s new material. Before my
quest was complete, I happen chanced upon nearly all of his new album, Chaos and Creation
in the Backyard. While I was searching for the new material, I discovered this particular
song, "Too Much Rain." I was able to transcribe the unknown fairly quickly and easily,
and so, as my first official tab, I would like to give it to all of you who would wish
to see it!
Notes:
The basic chord progression listed below is identical to that which McCartney plays on
his album, but the chords? configuration is subject to translation, as is the strum. If
you would like to experiment with different variations of chords, an excellent dictionary
can be found at http://www.chordfind.com. The lyrics were adapted from the booklet within
the CD case. On this song, McCartney, the ?one-man band," is credited with playing a
Bosendorfer Grand Piano, Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar, Martin D28 Acoustic Guitar,
Martin 12 String Guitar, Hofner Bass Guitar, Epiphone Casino Electric Guitar, Schmidt
Autoharp, Ludwig Drums, Maracas, and Vocals. On a separate note: there are several other
artists who have songs entitled ?Too Much Rain.? Carole King?s celebrated album ?Music?
(1971) and ATB?s (German DJ André Tanneberger) ?Movin? Melodies? (1998) both feature a
song entitled ?Too Much Rain.? I hope that this help out! Please, if you have any
questions or comments, don't hesitate to contact me. I sincerely hope that this helps
