Elton John – Your Song (Chords and Tab)

Elton John – Your Song (Chords)

Today I’m writing up Parada de Tettas by The Vengaboys. But then again, no. I’m doing this year’s John Lewis ad Elton John’s Your Song.

The arrangement uses a capo on the first fret to make things easier. But it’s still not completely plain sailing as there are some smart chord moves. The best being the use of F# minor and F# major. Being in D, the F#m fits with the harmony you’d expect. So the F# spices things up and lifts the progression after melancholy descending Bm move in the previous line.

Suggested Strumming

You can use this strum once for almost chord:

d – d – d u d –

The only exceptions are the Asus4 – A and Dsus4 – D moves. There you play the first half of the bar (d – d -) on the sus4 then switch the to major chord for the rest.

Twiddly Bits

This version of the intro uses some artificial harmonics (the notes with A.H. above them). These are tricky to play. So here’s a version with the capo on the third fret. It’s easier to play but the capo is on a different fret to the chords.
