Celine Dion guitar tabs for My heart will go on

Guitar tabs

This is a DUAL TRANSCRIPTION PAGE. The First part is the melodic
'single note' transcripion by Jose. The second version is an
in depth 'chord melody' tutorial by Karl. Jose's contains the
melody notes, Karl's contains the Ulian piper parts as well as
a chord glossary to the 'My Heart Will Go On - Chords' version
that is already is posted. We both have a slightly different
'view point' of the way the guitar melodies could be played.
Check them both out and make your own decision, or mix 'n' match!!
ENJOY!!!

My Heart Will Go On
                                  By Celine Dion
                     from the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
                                    "Titanic"

                       Transcribed by Jose Rufino  junn@skyinet.net


    Song Intro ( The Piano or flute intro
                 sounds more accurate but with
                 proper technique this riff should
                 sound like the one in the CD)

     just raise everything 4 frets higher.

This is a completed version of the guitar tab.

Notes:All right you noble people! You asked!. Here
is the INTRO, MIDDLE, GLOSSARY & ENDING.
As well as some notes on the key change to this
great song.

There's a simple way and a complex way.
Learn the simple way first.
See the melody before you actually touch the notes.
Sing to yourself as you play these notes.
It will help when you try the more advanced version.
This is the melody from an Ulian (sp ) Pipe, a Scottish
instrument similar to the bagpipe, 'stoked' with
the arm instead of blown. You can see one of these
pipers in the Video of "Riverdance" (some very hip music)

* The changed octaves enable the chord melody
to continue at a reasonable pitch level. I believe
it's just as powerful.

Here are some technical notes about this
key change that I think are fascinating:

The song is in A chord diagramE MajorE major, however it starts
in the reletive minor A chord diagramC# minorC#m (a forbearance of calamity ).
In the middle of the song the beautiful flute
is heard again, almost reasurring in its simplicity.
Then the flute RISES up to its highest note! At this
the BASS has DECENDED all the way from A chord diagramC#C# to F.
That's; C#, B, A, G#, A chord diagramF#F# and A chord diagramFF that what's called a
minor 6th in music. DOWN 6 notes!
Into the virtual pool of a tonality: A chord diagramFF minor!!!
WOW!!!
By the end of the piece this new key, however,
ASCENDS	to it's reletive - A chord diagramAbAb Major!
Perhaps in the end all these people really did
"ascend" to some higher plane as we'd hope to believe...!!!

ENDING:

*
A chord diagramAbAb         - 466544               fingered - 134211
Eb/Ab      - x66886               fingered - x11341
Db/Ab      - x46664               fingered - x13331

*This last section should be 'tap chimes' ala Eddie Van Halen.
Essentially it's done by slap/tapping the notes you're
fingering at the exact place 12 frets higher. With your
right hand fingers. I usually just drop the pick...

So if the chord:

Eb/Ab      - x66886               fingered - x11341

were slap/tapped, you'd slap/tap at the frets:

        x 16 16 18 18 16

So, the ending stuff is as follows


A chord diagramAbAb         - 466544               fingered - 134211
                     slapped   14 16 16 15 14 14
Eb/Ab      - x66886               fingered - x11341
                     slapped   x 16 16 18 18 16
Db/Ab      - x46664               fingered - x13331
                     slapped   x 16 16 18 18 16

Make the Rhythm of the slap/taps fit the beat format. You can
be sort of busy (eighth notes). It's really pretty hard
but well worth the dropped jaws when you play it for friends.
Electric players: turn on echo here...


The very last chord, Ab:

A chord diagramAbAb         - 466544               fingered - 134211

is stummed slowly up to the 3rd string
then let the 2nd string, then the 1st string ring out.

Hold on for dear life without ever letting on how huge
this song REALLY is.
