Ride -- Nick Drake
====
album: Pink Moon
This song is fairly easy. I've tabbed out the main picking patterns;
there are a few variations, some off them I've put in brackets,
and if you can't work out the others from the record, they're
probably
not important. The hardest part is the timing, which I hope I've got
fairly accurate, but I couldn't work out the time-signature; I think
it changes every now and then, so you'll have to play along to the
record to get you started.
The tuning is CGCFCE, without a capo.
PART I:-
                                                            hammer on

PART II:-
    the notes in brackets are only played towards the end.
    don't pick the 2 after the 3, like a pull off but smoother.

[INTRO:-]
I*3, II*2, III, IV*2
[VERSE 1:-]
I     I know you
I     Care too
I     I see through
II    All of the pictures that you keep on the wall
II    All of the people that will come to the ball
[CHORUS:-]
III   But hear me calling, won't you give me
IV    A free ride
III   Hear me calling, won't you give me
IV    A free ride
IV
[VERSE 2:-]
I     I know too
I     What you do
I     When you're through
II    Counting the cattle as they go by the door
II    Keeping a carpet that's so thick on the floor
[CHORUS]
[SOLO:-]
V*3, II*2
[REPEAT VERSE 1]
[CHORUS]
IV*2.
------------------------------------------------------

I*3, means play Part I three times, etc.
Oddly, the lyrics booklet in my box set has verse 3 with the line
"all of the pictures that keep you on the wall" twice, whereas
this is clearly not what he sings at this point. Maybe those were
the original words which got changed when he recorded the song in
the studio, or more likely, it's another misprint by Hannibal
Records (the booklet is full of them...).
