THE MASTERPLAN
(Gallagher)
Track 4 the single "Wonderwall"
Tabbed by Fred Lidskog 
There's a lot of weird chords used in this song, and the chords and
fills are sort  of hard to hear (especially in the intro) because of the
string section, so keep an open mind when you see this transcription on 
paper, because if you play the song, you'll hear these chords are pretty
much the right ones. Written next to some of the chords I use for this
song are the chords listed in the official Oasis B-sides guitar book
(thanks to Paul Das  for providing these) in case you want
to know what that book has listed. Unfortunately, I don't think the
transcription found in this book is a very accurate one (as is the case
with many transcriptions in the "official" Oasis tab books) so you can try
out these chords if you wish, but you'll most likely agree with me that in
most cases the "official" book is incorrect.
Chords used:
	 EADGBe
Am      (x02210)
A7sus4  (x02030) or try (x05430) [official book: G/A  (x05433)] 
Fmaj7/A (x03210)                 [official book: F/A  (x03211)]
C/B   	(x2x010)		 [official book: G/B  (x20003)]
C	(x32010)
D       (xx0232)
E	(022100)
E7	(020100)
F	(x33211)
G	(3x0033)
Tab Key:
b = bend (7b8 means bend string at 7th fret to make approximately the note
    the string would make if played at the 8th fret with no bend
r = release bend
h = hammer on
s = slide (a quick slide, sounds like one note)
/ = a slide where you play the first note, THEN slide to the second
() = harmonics, lightly touch the string directly above the fret listed
     and then pick the string 
Intro:

Chords used in intro:
Am 	(x07500)
Am/G#   (x06500)	[official book: Am(maj7/G#)   (4x2210)]
Am7     (x05500)	[official book: Am7/G	      (3x2210)]
Am/F#	(x04500)  	[official book: Am6/F#	      (2x2210)]
Fmaj7/A (x03500)	[official book: Fmaj7	      (1x2210)]
Am/D    (x00500)	[official book: D	      (xx0232)]
E7	(020100)
So here it goes:
  Am   Am/G#      Am7       Am/F#     Fmaj7/A    Am/D    
e------------(12)-----(12)-------(19)-----------------

E-----------------------------------------------------
  Am		 E7
e---------0-----------------------------------------------
B-------3---3---------------------------------------------
G-------------0-------------------------------------------
D---2s4---------------------------------------------------
A---------------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------------
THEN: Repeat intro chords one more time through, with the second guitar
picking notes from the chords in a kind of random pattern, but which can
basically played like this:
 
  Am     	         Am/G#			Am/G
e------------0----------------------0---------------------
B--------------0----------------------0-------------------
G----5--4--5-----5----------5--4--5-----5-----------------
D-7----------------7--7--6----------------6--6--5--etc.---
A---------------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------------
The book has the intro like this:
Am   Am(maj7/G#)   Am7/G   Am6/F#   Fmaj7   D  G   Am    E7
Verse 1
-------
Am
Take the time to make some sense
   A7sus4
of what you want to say
    Fmaj7/A	      A7sus4         Am      E7
and cast  your words away   upon the waves
Am
Sail them home with acquiesce
     A7sus4
On a ship of hope today
    Fmaj7/A       A7sus4
And as they land upon the shore
D                F
Tell them not to fear no more
G                                E   E7
Say it loud, and sing it proud today       And then
Chorus:
-------
C
Dance if you wanna dance
C/B
Please brother take a chance
Am
You know they're gonna go
G		     F   G  C            G
Which way they wanna go
		     All we know is that we don't 
C
Know how it's gonna be
C/B
Please brother let it be
Am
Life on the other hand 
G                   F      G
won't make you understand
		      Am          A7sus4   Fmaj7/A   A7sus4   Am   E7
We're all part of the masterplan
NOTE: This little musical interlude has a guitar solo part being played
backwards. The following is that part tabbed as it sounds backwards.

Say it loud and sing it proud today
Verse 2
-------
I'm not saying right is wrong
It's up to us to make
The best of all the things that come our way
'Cos everything that's been has passed
The answer's in the looking glass
There's four and twenty million doors
Down life's endless corridor
Say it loud and sing it proud today
And then
[CHORUS same]
