Subject: TAB: The Masterplan  by Oasis

"The Masterplan"
Performed by Oasis
>From the single "Wonderwall" on Sony/Creation Records
Music by: N. Gallagher
Lyrics by: N. Gallagher
-------------
Tabbed by Fred Lidskog 

This is another one of my favorites by Oasis, truly an epic song and
another where our lads are accompanied by a string and horn section.
There's alot of weird chords used in this song, and the chords and
fills are sort  of hard to hear (especially in the intro) because of the
string section, so keep an open mind when you see this transcription on
paper, because if you play the song, you'll hear these chords are pretty
much the right ones.

Chords used:

	 EADGBe
Am      (x02210)
A7sus4  (x02030) or try (x05430)
Fmaj7/A (x03210)
C/B   	(x2x010)
C	(x32010)
D       (xx0232)
E	(022100)
E7	(020100)
F	(x33211)
G	(3x0033)

Tab Key:

b = bend (7b8 means bend string at 7th fret to make approximately the note
    the string would make if played at the 8th fret with no bend
r = release bend
h = hammer on
s = slide (a quick slide, sounds like one note)
/ = a slide where you play the first note, THEN slide to the second
() = harmonics, lightly touch the string directly above the fret listed
     and then pick the string

Intro:
-----

Chords used in intro:

Am 	(x07500)
Am/G#   (x06500)
Am7     (x05500)
Am/F#	(x04500)
Fmaj7/A (x03500)
Am/D    (x00500)
E7	(020100)

So here it goes:

  Am   Am/G#      Am7       Am/F#     Fmaj7/A    Am/D
e------------(12)-----(12)-------(19)-----------------|
B---------------------------(12)----------------------|
G-----------------------------------------------------|
D-----------------------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------------|

  Am		 E7
e---------0-----------------------------------------------|
B-------3---3---------------------------------------------|
G-------------0-------------------------------------------|
D---2s4---------------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------|

THEN: Repeat intro chords one more time through, with the second guitar
picking notes from the chords in a kind of random pattern, but which can
basically played like this:

  Am     	         Am/G#			Am/G
e------------0----------------------0---------------------|
B--------------0----------------------0-------------------|
G----5--4--5-----5----------5--4--5-----5-----------------|
D-7----------------7--7--6----------------6--6--5--etc.---|
A---------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------|


Verse 1
-------
Am
Take the time to make some sense
   A7sus4
of what you want to say
    Fmaj7/A	      A7sus4         Am      E7
and cast  your words away   upon the waves

Am
Sail them home with acquiesce
     A7sus4
On a ship of hope today
    Fmaj7/A       A7sus4
And as they land upon the shore
D                F
Tell them not to fear no more
G                                E   E7
Say it loud, and sing it proud today       And then

Chorus:
-------
C
Dance if you wanna dance
C/B
Please brother take a chance
Am
You know they're gonna go
G		     F   G  C            G
Which way they wanna go
		     All we know is that we don't
C
Know how it's gonna be
C/B
Please brother let it be
Am
Life on the other hand
G                   F      G
won't make you understand
		      Am          A7sus4   Fmaj7/A   A7sus4   Am   E7
We're all part of the masterplan

NOTE: This little musical interlude has a guitar solo part being played
backwards. The following is that part tabbed as it sounds backwards.

Say it loud and sing it proud today

Verse 2
-------
I'm not saying right is wrong
It's up to us to make
The best of all the things that come our way

'Cos everything that's been has passed
The answer's in the looking glass
There's four and twenty million doors
Down life's endless corridor
Say it loud and sing it proud today

And then

[CHORUS same]

About the artist behind Master Plan Tab:

Oasis are an English rock band that formed in Manchester in 1991. The group was formed by Liam Gallagher (lead vocals), Paul Arthurs (guitar), Paul McGuigan (bass) and Tony McCarroll (drums), who were soon joined by Liam's older brother Noel Gallagher (lead guitar, vocals). Oasis have sold more than 50 million albums worldwide,[1] and have had eight UK number one singles. The Gallagher brothers are the band's leading songwriters and the only continual members. The present lineup is completed by rhythm/lead guitarist and songwriter Gem Archer, guitarist and songwriter Andy Bell and unofficial drummer Zak Starkey.

The band initially gained prominence performing on the Manchester club circuit. They were signed to independent record label Creation Records and afterwards released their debut album Definitely Maybe in 1994. The following year, the band recorded (What's the Story) Morning Glory? (1995) with their new drummer Alan White, whilst rivalling with Britpop peers Blur in the charts. The Gallagher brothers were featured regularly in tabloid newspapers for their sibling rivalry and wild lifestyles, cultivating reputations both as bad boys and as a band of the people. At the height of their fame, Oasis' third album, Be Here Now (1997), became the fastest-selling album in UK chart history, but lost much of its long-term appeal after the initial hype and positive reception tempered.

While recording their fourth album Standing on the Shoulder of Giants (2000) in 1999, Oasis lost two founding members and suffered a notable decline in popularity in America. The band added replacements Gem Archer and Andy Bell for Heathen Chemistry (2002). Their sixth album Don't Believe the Truth (2005) with Zak Starkey, despite turbulent recording, became their best-selling and best-received album in a decade. The following year, the band released a compilation album entitled Stop the Clocks. In February 2007, Oasis received the BRIT Award for outstanding contribution to music.

The seventh studio album by the band is reported to be complete and, although an official release date has not been confirmed, both Liam and Noel Gallagher have been quoted as saying that the album is due out in September 2008. [2] [3]
