Gabe Bondoc - Sleigh Ride chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Tabbed By: Mike

This is a tab for Gabe Bondoc's version of the classic Harry Connick Jr. arrangement.
Video right this way --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3vp1k8wvw0

This is a great little jazzy tune that can be played with one guitar. I've tabbed out 
how he plays each of the chords in the video (more or less) so pay attention!

Verse:
**During the verse, he mostly just plays around between the F6add9 and Gm9 chords
  It's up to you how you want to jazz it up but basically he'll just hit a couple
  strings on the up stroke. This is just an example:

  [ch]F6add9[/ch]      Gm9      [ch]F6add9[/ch]        Gm9 ...
e--------------------------------------------------11-...
B--8---10---------10-----8---14---------10-----8---11-...

Bridge:
          Fmaj7 
There's a birthday party
                      Fm
At the home of Farmer Gray
      Fm                         Fmaj7
It'll be the perfect ending to a perfect day
         Fmaj7       F#m6
We'll be singing the songs
   Gm7     Abm6     Am7   C#m7   Dm9
We love to sing without a single stop
       Amaj7                               
At the fireplace
Bbm6     Bm7       E7*       A7*
While we watch the chestnuts pop
 
'pop, pop, pop'

          Fmaj7
There's a happy feeling
                         Fm
Nothing in the world can buy
          Fm 
When they pass around the coffee
        Fmaj7
And the pumpkin pie
      Fmaj7     F#m6   Gm7     Abm6
It'll nearly be like a picture print
   Am7  C#m7   Dm9
By Currier and Ives
C11
These wonderful things are the things
We remember all through our lives
