Corrections to existing TABS:

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

    Dm         G
    She ... anywhere
    Dm         G     A
    I   ...    chair.

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

    Dm         G
    She ... anywhere
    Dm         Em7  A7
    I   ...    chair.

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

    Am         D
    She ... anywhere
    Am         D     F#
    I   ...    chair ---> verse (E riff above)

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

    Em         A
    She ... anywhere
    Em         Fm7   B7
    I   ...    chair.

   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.

[repeat 1st measure]

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.

[repeat 1st measure]


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:
     E     D     E     D    [bridge]  Em    A    Em     A   B

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:

B --0---2---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0----------

-> (c)  B   (c) G  (c)  D   G   G  (c)  D   G    A  (c)   
         

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."

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:  by 

		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.

Dear guitar@nevada.edu,
		My name is Stuart Watson, and I would like to submit a tabbed-out 
version of the song Money, by Pink Floyd, to you.  So, here it is:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
From: lrw@virginia.edu (Stuart Watson)

	Here's the tablature for the song Money, by Pink Floyd.  The song appeared 
	on the album The Dark Side of the Moon, released in 1973.  Roger Waters 
	wrote and sang the song.  Here it is:

Corrections to existing TABS:

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

    Dm         G
    She ... anywhere
    Dm         G     A
    I   ...    chair.

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

    Dm         G
    She ... anywhere
    Dm         Em7  A7
    I   ...    chair.

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

    Am         D
    She ... anywhere
    Am         D     F#
    I   ...    chair ---> verse (E riff above)

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

    Em         A
    She ... anywhere
    Em         Fm7   B7
    I   ...    chair.

   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.

[repeat 1st measure]

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.

[repeat 1st measure]


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:
     E     D     E     D    [bridge]  Em    A    Em     A   B

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:

e --0---0---0---0---0---x---x---x---0---x---x---x---0----------

-> (c)  B   (c) G  (c)  D   G   G  (c)  D   G    A  (c)   
         

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."
