Rodgers and Hammerstein – You’ll Never Walk Alone (Tab)

You’ll Never Walk Alone (Tab)

This Rodgers and Hammerstein was originally from the musical Carousel. But I know it exclusively from the Gerry and the Pacemakers version that lead to it becoming the anthem of Liverpool FC (narrowly beating out the Anfield Rap). The already emotionally powerful song was given extra weight by the role in played in commemorating those who died in the Hillsborough disaster.

For this arrangement I’ve threaded the melody together with fingerpicked, arpeggiated chords. With this style of playing it’s really easy for the melody notes to get lost amongst the backing notes. So it’s really important to more forcefully pluck the melody notes (indicated with arrowheads above them in this tab) so it doesn’t end up just sounding like picking practice.

I recommend using one finger per string picking all the way through this one.


Buy the Gerry and the Pacemakers version
