Thanks

I am at work right now with a guitar nowhere near me, so if I transposed anything I apologize,

when I get home tonight I wil verify with a guitar in hand:

here ya go:
Mighty High



INTRO


E|-------------------------
B|--9-------------8--------
G|--10------------9--------
D|--9-------------8--------
A|------------------------- 3x
E|-------------------------


Intro 4th time
These are Hits:
E|----------------------
B|--10--10--6--6--6--6--
G|--10--10--8--8--8--8--
D|--10--10--7--7--7--7--
A|--8---8---8--8--8--8--
E|----------------------


(Chorus first):

Bb
Take a Load off your Mind

Eb
Ride the Mighty Glory

Ab Eb
Listen to My Story

Bb
and Ride the Mighty High

Note that I didnt format the chords over the words properly, no time to fix now, but it is easy anyway



Verse example:

Bb
Take a load off your feet
Cm
Hear what I'm saying
Cm
Hear what I'm saying
Bb
It will set your mind at ease

etc..etc..




The the Bridge (or chorus 2 if you will, which only is on live versions, not studio outtake)

Ab Eb Tag Riff **
Cmon and Rii-iide Mightly High repeat 3 times


** Tag Riff:
|-------------------
B|-------------------
G|-------------------
D|--8--6--5---------- 2x
A|-----------9--6h8--
E|-------------------

That tag above is very quick and precise, and can be played a ton of different ways obviously



Near the end of the song, the intro hits come again and this time the 4th time around hits go double

Hey Jeff, looks great, question about the intro though, I always played a C#7th down to a C7th, you virtually have a D7th down to a C#7th, I know you dont have the root in there, could you be mistaken, or is it me?
Love that chromatic run and the offbeats

I am sure you are right, like I said I could have transposed stuff because I did this without guitar in hand at work, looks like the opening 2 chords need to be moved down 1 fret, same shape though


NOTE: I fixed the Tab in original post so play as written
