David Beckingham – If I Had You (Tab)
An interesting one here. David is using the iRealBook ipod app to back himself up. It has chords, bass and drums for a bunch of songs plus you can punch in your own. I wasn’t sure about shelling out the fairly high (for an app) price before but I went for it after I heard this. I haven’t had chance to use it much, but I’ve had fun messing with it. The downside is that it doesn’t give you any notation (standard notation or tab of any kind) so you have to do your own research. Lucky for us, David was kind enough to tab this one out.
Two recommended versions to buy: Dinah Washington’s is best, but Willie Nelson and Diana Krall do a fine version too and that sticks closer to the melody so probably better for tune-learning purposes.
