Diamond Neil – Shilo tab

Here's Shilo from Neil Diamond.
It's from my big sister's original Bang Records

When I was a little kid, I worshipped Neil Diamond.
My sister bought a ton of albums and singles in the
late late sixties and early seventies, 
so this stuff is in my blood.

I also want to mention that I think the totally
undefinable Neil Diamond is still great.  Granted,
orchestrated slow ballads make my skin crawl, but he
could/can kick and rock.

So, here's my formal invitation to Neil Diamond
to come up here to Minneapolis and do 
an unplugged or semi-plugged thing at 1st Ave.  
(If you need a second guitarist, send me mail).
