Wicked - Defying Gravity chords version 3

“Defying Gravity” transcribed by Mike P.

Tune to E flat –Best Played on an Acoustic, normal rhythm and tempo

This is a modified version of the Original Cast Recording (OCR), with the talking parts
removed. The 2nd Verse is a little scaled back from the OCR, mainly to keep a nice
acoustic feel. After the 2nd Chorus, we skip straight to the Bridge, mostly to preserve 
the continuity of the music. The Bridge and the 3rd Chorus make the song.

** The outro is the most complex part of the arrangement, with some single notes in
various places(C,B,A# rundown, and F#),but like the rest of the song, it’s got a small
learning curve, and then you’ll have it in no time.

Once learned, these chords are fairly easy to play, and they flow into each other quite
well. It may seem like a lot at first, but it’s a solid transcription. I hope you enjoy
playing this version as much as I do.  – Mike P.
