This is Halloween

This Is Halloween (Tab)(PDF)


This song comes from the Tim Burton film Nightmare Before Christmas. And ‘nightmare’ is about frickin’ right. It’s full of key changes, time signature changes and nothing is played the same way twice. What I’m trying to say is: EPIC FAIL.

I’ve only been able to tab out the first section of the song and time has run out. Hopefully there’s enough there to get you going.

In the arrangement I’ve tried to capture as much of the backing as I can. It’s mostly chords with a few little runs thrown in.

    That’s an awesome try on that one. I don’t think i’ve ever seen a tab that switches timing like 4 times like that. But it gives us something spooky to strum!

    Iain: There are worse songs to have stuck in your head.

    Chris: Thanks. I gave it a go.
