Saw spilly and shaggy talkin about Neil and thought I'd share this. I learned this a long time ago and think it's pretty close but you be the judge. It's such a classic rock intro, and too cool not to play.


Brain lock - edited from 2 to 3 on the B string. :x

It's actually 2 separate but similar guitar parts overlapping the first being.
Dm F C

and the second


I believe Neil and David play these licks while Steve strums

for anybody who's interested the chorus is G7 to C
one guitar plays barres, the other open chords

I don't know spilly. I slowed this down a full octave years ago with one of those gadgets and I'm pretty sure the opening is one guitar.

I also think the chorus is Gm7-C.

No matter.

If you're right spilly, I just morphed the two. Since I'm predominantly an ear player, wouldn't be the first time I did that.

I think you did morph the two and did a fantastic job of doing it.

I got my version out of an authentic CSNY tab book years back. I've lost the book, but my memorie isn't too bad.
either way it's a fantastic tune and alot of fun to jam on

you were right about the intro itself, the second guitar doesn't kick in untill after a full bar, the chorus is Gm7 also

You ever just feel like your lossing brain cells?

Oh yea. I've edited many of my posts (including the first one in this thread) due to a critical shortage of brain cells. It has the side benefit of helping me not take myself too seriously. :roll:
