Jethro Tull
Wind Up (Guitar chord)

Here's a quick sketch of the acoustic bits of Wind-Up. It seems to

have only one place where Andersonianism occurs, so there's not much

point in tabbing the whole shebang (at least, not from the acoustic

guitar point of view).



Ian Anderson

(transcribed by Paul Tarvydas)

Open, standard tuning (i.e. no capo!).

Single notes are shown as S/F, where S is the string and F is the fret.

The Andersonianism occurs on the last word of each (extended) line of

the verse. He comes off the D chord straight into an Asus4, with the

pinky holding down the 2/3 suspended note, in front of the 3rd finger

on the 2nd fret. He strums down once, then lifts both the pinky and

the 3rd finger off of the 2nd string and strums up, then replaces the

3rd finger on the 2nd fret and strums down-up. He then slides to his

Em7 fingering, pinning the 3rd finger on 2/3 ready for the D chord,

plays the little riff by lifting and placing the first finger. The

last note of the riff is the open 4th string - during this he sets up

the D fingering and then down-strums it.
