One of the first songs I ever learned on guitar!



This is not identical to what Neil plays on the record (his C/F

section is very slightly different) but your audience won't pick it.

Especially with your wailing emotional vocal over the top (so to speak).





(^H means hammer-on where indicated)

                     The Needle and the Damage Done

                    by Neil Young, on Harvest (1972)

 

 

 Intro and half-way interlude without vocals:

 [I play this as an extremely regular alternate bass/high picking with

  either a flat pick or two fingers; all notes (or pairs of notes in the

  hammer-ons and slides) in what I outline here should have the same

  duration]

 

    D               D/C             D/B             D/Bb

 Verses:

 [Note how the first strip of tab is identical; what changes is the way

  the C and F chords are played (simplified) and the passage from the

  concluding E chord to the D chord that starts off the next verse.]
