Tabbed By : Robert Sizemore

Artists: Creedence Clearwater Revival
Album: Chronicle/Cosmo's Factory
Song: I Heard It Through the Grapevine
Tuning: Drop-D - DADGBD

I decided to do a more explicit tab of "I Heard It Through the Grapevine". The song can 
divided into 3 parts which I'll call intro, verse, and chorus. The intro is played as a 
between the chorus/verse and as a bridge between the chorus/solo.

Intro:

Guitar 1:

E-------------------------------------------------|
B-------------------------------------------------|
G-------------------------------------------------| x 4
D-------------------------------------------------|
A--5~-5-8-5~-5~-8-7~------------------------------|
E--0~-0-0-0~-0~-0~0~------------------------------|

Guitar 1 (Alternative, for different sound/more fun):

E-------------------------------------------------|
B--3--3-3-3--3--3-3-------------------------------|
G--2--2-2-2--2--2-2-------------------------------| x 4
D--0--0-0-0--0--0-0-------------------------------|
A--0--0-0-0--0--0-0-------------------------------|
E--0--0-3-0--0--3-2-------------------------------|

Guitar 2 (fade in after drums start):

   D5
E--5-5-5--5-5-5--5-5-5--5-5-5---------------------|

About the artist behind Heard It Through The Grapevine Tab:

Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR) was an American roots rock band who gained popularity in the late 1960s and early '70s with a string of successful songs from multiple albums released in 1968, 1969 and 1970.

The group consisted of singer, lead guitarist, and primary writer John Fogerty, rhythm guitarist Tom Fogerty, bass player Stu Cook, and drummer Doug Clifford. Their musical style encompassed rock and roll and so-called swamp rock genres.

CCR's music is still a staple of American and worldwide radio airplay[1] and often figures in various media.
