Procol Harum - Whiter Shade Of Pale tab

Song: Whiter Shade of Pale
Artist: Procol Harum
Tabbed by: nojustno@hotmail.com


Standard tuning

I like to finger pick this song, but strumming sounds pretty good too but rhythm and picking patterns will 
up to you, they?re really not too hard

It is basically this pattern throughout the entire song (be sure to emphasize the bass notes for a sound 
to the original):

|----0------0----0-----0------1-----1----1----1------3-----3------0------0------0-------1-----3-------1-----3--|
|----1------1----1-----1------1-----1----1----1------0-----0------0------0------1-------1-----0-------1-----0--|
|----0------0----2-----2------2-----2----2----2------0-----0------0------0------0-------2-----0-------2-----0--|
|----2------2----2-----2------3-----2----0----0------0-----0------2------2------2-------3-----0-------3-----0--|
|----3------2----0-----0----------------------3------2-----2------2------2------3-------------2-------------2--|
|-----------------------3----------------------------3-----1------0------3--------------------3-------------3--|


The synthesizer part goes like this:

Lyrics:

We skipped the light fandango
Turned cartwheels cross the floor
I was feeling kinda sea-sick
But the crowed called out for more
The room was pounding harder
As the ceiling flew away
When we called out for another drink
The waiter brought the tray

Chorus:
And so it was the later
As the miller told his tale
That her face at first just ghostly
Turned a whiter shade of pale

She said there is no reason
When the truth is plain to see
That I?ll wander through my playing cards
Would not let her be
One of 16 vestal virgins
Who were leaving for the coast
And although my eyes were open
The might just as well?ve been closed


Chorus

That?s everything, it?s pretty simple but if you have any questions or comments, please e-mail me at nojustno@hotmail.com
