Blind Melon guitar tabs for No rain (mandolin)

Guitar tabs with lyrics

  • Tuning: Standard tuning
Tuning GDAe. I transposed this song to the mandolin from the guitar. The recording features
an acoustic and an electric guitar. From their 1992 debut: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmVn6b7DdpA

We play the E7 chord diagramE7E7 with the high D chord diagramDD note on the 5th fret of the A chord diagramAA here, and on the low open D chord diagramDD string in the intro,
because the guitar plays the E7 chord diagramE7E7 as 020100 in the intro and as 022130 at the end of the verse.

We add the G# chord diagramG#G# on the 4th fret of the E chord diagramEE string in there, because the rhythm guitar is playing bar chords.
The E chord diagramEE bar chord is x7999x. The open chord 0221000 misses out on that G# chord diagramG#G# on the 9th fret of the B chord diagramBB ?? string.
As it`s very audible in the recording, we add it in for the mandolin, too.
