   59th Street Bridge Song (also Feelin' Groovy) - Simon and Garfunkle

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: Standard tuning
Capo: 1st Fret
Key: D#

The fingering shown here assumes NO CAPO IS USED. But Simon and 
Garfunkle appear to use this fingering (as best I can figure out from a CD) 
capoed on the 1st fret.

I know no one will believe me but I figured this out by ear. In other words
it isn't perfect, but its sure is stinkin' close!

Intro:

   D   A       Dsus2 A/C#*   D/A   A     Dsus2 A
e|-2---0-----------0-------------2-0---------0-------|
B|-------2-----3-----2*------3-------2---3-----2---2-|
G|---------2-----2-----2---2---2-------2---2-----2---|
D|-0---2-------0---------2---4---4-2-----0-----------|
A|-------------------4\0*----------------------0-----|
E|---------------------------------------------------|
	*Ok this is hard, bar the A chord with your index fingering (you 
	won't play high E string) and put your ring finger on the fourth 
	fret of the A string. Pluck the B and A strings and slide your 
	ring finger to make the bass note "slide" down and carefully lift 
	that finger to let the A string ring freely. All this WHILE you 
	continue to play the next three notes :( This particular sliding 
	bass is used throughout the entire song wherever this A/C# is played.

   D/F#    A       Dsus2 A/C#*   D/F#  A     Dsus2 
e|-----2---0-----------0-------------2-0---------0-9-------------------------|
B|-3---------2-----3-----2-------3-------2---3-------10b11\5-----------------|
G|---2---------2-----2-----2---2---2-------2---2-----------------------------|
D|-4---4---2-------0---------2---4---4-2-----0-----7+*-----------------------|
A|-----------------------4\0-------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------0h2-2/5-5/7-7/9-|
	*Harmonic on seventh fret at the same time you play the 9th fret on 
	the high e string, sounds really cool :D
