Bee Gees - Turn Of The Century tab

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
			 Turn of the Century  Bee Gees
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

A little bit of a guilty pleasure but this tune is just so catchy! Not a guitar song as
but still nice to play and sing. In the Bee Gees' version the main instrument is a harpsichord.
In order to get the feel I mostly use the voicings suggested below and strike them hard and
short with a plec in the first part of the verses. The rest (starting with the C chord) can be
strummed ad lib.
