Remaining parts of the song and closing riffs are a mixture of
ascending scales like:

|----7--9/11------------------|
|--9--------------------------|

and many hammers and pull-offs kinda like:

|--11^12^11------------------|
|-----------13---11^13^11----|
|-------------------------13-|
|----------------------------|
|----------------------------|

with repeats of parts of previous riffs - improvise in the key
just be sure to end on a B or B chord.

"Where I Go" by Natalie Merchant from Tigerlily 1995
Please! *Any* comments or suggestions are welcome!!



I've corrected my recent submission for Natalie Merchant's "Where I Go" below.
I had forgotten to add the F# chord diagram and also fixed some notes in the
tab after relistening to the song.


Here's my take on Natalie Merchant's "Where I go".  This is clearly the best
song on her solo effort "Tigerlily".  I think I only had to listen to it
about a million times before I could get it all down.  Of course, I will
extend that standard disclaimer that this is my first tab submission.

Chords (standard tuning):

   B        B7       G#m      E        F#       A#m      A#m/E
   xx                         o   oo   x        xx       xx   o
   ||||||  7||||||  4||||||   |||*||   ||||||   |||||*   ||||||
   |||||*   *---**   *---**   |**|||   ||||**   ||||*|   ||||*|
   ||||||   |||*||   ||||||   ||||||   |||*||   ||**||   ||**||
   ||***|   |**|||   |**|||   ||||||   |**|||   ||||||   ||||||

   All the symbols are what you would expect.  Here, B7 is named so
   for lack of a better term.  I looked through a chord dictionary,
   but didn't see one the same as my diagram.  A#m/E is the same case.


Chord Progression:

   I use (B G#m E E x 2) (F# E F# E F# E) for the verse and chorus.
   Later, there's just (G#m G#m E E) and the (F# E F# E F# E) with
   some variation you will see in the tab.  I use the B7 in place of
   the B whenever Ms. Merchant is not singing.  The A#m and A#m/E
   only occurs once in two measures (at 3:19) late in the song
   (see strum pattern).


Strum Key:

   |  down strum   x  muted down strum   u up strum
   d               d                     |

   4  quarter note   8  eighth note

Try the following for the verse (4/4 time):

   B          G#m        E            E
   4 4 8 8 4  4 4 8 8 4  4 4 8 8 8 8  8 8 4 8 8 4
   | x u u |  | x u u |  | x u u | u  | u x u u |
   d d | | d  d d | | d  v v | | v |  v | v | | v

   B G#m E   E
   (same as  8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8
    above)   | u x u | u | u
             v | v | v | v |

   For the A#m measures:

   A#m          A#m
   4 4 8 8 8 8  8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8   (I use A#m/E on the down strum after
   | x u | u x  u | u x u | u |    each muted down strum.  You really
   v v | v | v  | v | v | v | v    need to listen to the song to hear this.)


Tab Key:

   h      -- hammer on
   p      -- pull off
   s      -- slide
