Otis Redding – (Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay (Tabs)

Otis Redding – The Dock of the Bay (Tab)

Intro: I love the whistled outro of this song. So I simplified it and used is as the intro too.

Verse: I’ve tabbed these as repeats but there are slight differences in the timings of the notes that are pretty easy to pick out yourself. Or I’m sure no one will notice or care if you just repeat the first verse exactly each time.

Chorus: Usually, I’ll emphasise the melody of the song over other elements. But the guitar part here is so great I’ve tried to incorporate that as much as possible.

Bridge: The hardest part of the song. The melody gets a bit fiddly. Especially with it being high on the fretboard.

Outro: What a great melody to just toss out in the outro.
