                          "Tales from Topographic Oceans"  
					 
 		   (guitar parts by Steve Howe; Words by Jon Anderson) 
		      
 
			     (acoustic guitar tab)

File name: "yes-tales_from_t_o.txt" ((Version 1)) 
 
These transcribtion contains several (acoustic guitar) parts from the "Tales..." 
-Album as I hear them; for this transcribtion I used the Steve Howe recording of  
it (guitar and vocals) which you can find at the "Yes, Friends and Relatives"- 
Album (a really bad album). Following along with the record (Original or Howe- 
Version) is a very good idea... 
 
Perhabs I will complete this version with the rest of the interresting guitar 
parts of the original album in a few years...  
 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
Index: 
 
1. Intro ("The Revealing Science of God") 
2. and 
3. Parts after the Intro (:  
 
4. Guitar part from "The Remembering" (As the silence of season...) 
 
5. a.,b.,c. and d. Acoustic part of "The Ancient"
