"Where I Go" by Natalie Merchant from Tigerlily 1995
Transcribed by <<viki@touch.caltech.edu>>
Please! *Any* comments or suggestions are welcome!!


I've corrected my recent submission for Natalie Merchant's "Where I Go" below.
I had forgotten to add the A chord diagramF#F# chord diagram and also fixed some notes in the
tab after relistening to the song.


Here's my take on Natalie Merchant's "Where I go".  This is clearly the best
song on her solo effort "Tigerlily".  I think I only had to listen to it
about a million times before I could get it all down.  Of course, I will
extend that standard disclaimer that this is my first tab submission.

Chords (standard tuning):

   A chord diagramBB        A chord diagramB7B7       A chord diagramG# minorG#m      A chord diagramE MajorE        A chord diagramF#F#       A chord diagramA#mA#m      A#m/E
   xx                         o   oo   x        xx       xx   o
   ||||||  7||||||  4||||||   |||*||   ||||||   |||||*   ||||||
   |||||*   *---**   *---**   |**|||   ||||**   ||||*|   ||||*|
   ||||||   |||*||   ||||||   ||||||   |||*||   ||**||   ||**||
   ||***|   |**|||   |**|||   ||||||   |**|||   ||||||   ||||||

   All the symbols are what you would expect.  Here, A chord diagramB7B7 is named so
   for lack of a better term.  I looked through a chord dictionary,
   but didn't see one the same as my diagram.  A#m/E is the same case.


Chord Progression:

   I use (A chord diagramBB A chord diagramG# minorG#m A chord diagramE MajorE A chord diagramE MajorE x 2) (A chord diagramF#F# A chord diagramE MajorE A chord diagramF#F# A chord diagramE MajorE A chord diagramF#F# A chord diagramE MajorE) for the verse and chorus.
   Later, there's just (A chord diagramG# minorG#m A chord diagramG# minorG#m A chord diagramE MajorE A chord diagramE MajorE) and the (A chord diagramF#F# A chord diagramE MajorE A chord diagramF#F# A chord diagramE MajorE A chord diagramF#F# A chord diagramE MajorE) with
   some variation you will see in the tab.  I use the A chord diagramB7B7 in place of
   the A chord diagramBB whenever Ms. Merchant is not singing.  The A chord diagramA#mA#m and A#m/E
   only occurs once in two measures (at 3:19) late in the song
   (see strum pattern).


Strum Key:

   |  down strum   x  muted down strum   u up strum
   d               d                     |

   4  quarter note   8  eighth note

Try the following for the verse (4/4 time):

   A chord diagramBB          A chord diagramG# minorG#m        A chord diagramE MajorE            A chord diagramE MajorE
   4 4 8 8 4  4 4 8 8 4  4 4 8 8 8 8  8 8 4 8 8 4
   | x u u |  | x u u |  | x u u | u  | u x u u |
   d d | | d  d d | | d  v v | | v |  v | v | | v

   A chord diagramBB A chord diagramG# minorG#m A chord diagramE MajorE   A chord diagramE MajorE
   (same as  8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8
    above)   | u x u | u | u
             v | v | v | v |

   For the A chord diagramA#mA#m measures:

   A chord diagramA#mA#m          A chord diagramA#mA#m
   4 4 8 8 8 8  8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8   (I use A#m/E on the down strum after
   | x u | u x  u | u x u | u |    each muted down strum.  You really
   v v | v | v  | v | v | v | v    need to listen to the song to hear this.)


Tab Key:

   h      -- hammer on
   p      -- pull off
   s      -- slide
   (m:ss) -- time marker at beginning of measure
