Words & Music by Noel Gallagher

Tabbed by ~ Bucboy1001 ~

This Oasis classic is deceptively simple, don't let the chord names fool you. One 
of my favorite live Oasis tunes from the Chief himself.
I know the chords to be 99.99% accurate (from chord book). As for the solo and 
outro leads, I have taken some of the other tabs I've seen and  
made what I think is the most accurate tab of this song. Remember to use a ton of 
vibrato to make the solo's come to life. 
Anyway, I welcome any suggestions/questions/comments. Thanks and Enjoy Madferit's.

Intro:  | C   G5 | Emadd9 | A7 | Emadd9 | A7 |

Verse 1:
Emadd9                         A7         Emadd9                              A7
We the people fight for our existence, We don't claim to be perfect but we're free.
   Emadd9                           A7        Emadd9                          A7
We dream our dreams alone with no resistance, Faded like the stars we wish to be.

Pre-Chorus 1:
                D    D/F            G5      G/F
Y'know I didn't mean,   what I just said,
       Em7                                  A7sus4
But my God woke up on the wrong side of his bed,

And it just don't matter now.

Chorus 1:
G5          D          A                       Em7      D/F
  Little by little, we gave you everything you ever dreamed of.
G5          D           A                        Em7    D/F
  Little by little, the wheels of your life have slowly fallen off.
G5          D           A                   Em7    D/F
  Little by little, you have to give it all in all your life,
G5            D            Cadd9         G/B               A7sus4
  And all the time, I just ask myself why   are you really here?

Verse 2:
Emadd9                      A7
True perfection has to be imperfect,
  Emadd9                                 A7
I know that that sounds foolish but it's true.
    Emadd9                              A7
The day has come and now you'll have to accept,
    Emadd9                               A7
The life inside your head we gave to you.

Pre-Chorus 2:
                D    D/F            G5      G/F
Y'know I didn't mean,   what I just said,
       Em7                                  A7sus4
But my God woke up on the wrong side of his bed,

And it just don't matter now.

Chorus 2:
G5          D          A                       Em7      D/F
  Little by little, we gave you everything you ever dreamed of.
G5          D           A                        Em7    D/F
  Little by little, the wheels of your life have slowly fallen off.
G5          D           A               Em7        D/F
  Little by little, you have to give it all in all your life,
G5            D            Cadd9         G/B               A7sus4
  And all the time, I just ask myself why   are you really here? Hey!

Instrumental/Solo: The solo starts right before Noel sings "here" (Really try to 
use vibrato and bring it to life)

(Note: I didn't literally count how many 14's he hits at the end, it's a lot, 
you'll be able to feel how many is enough when you play)

Chorus 3:

G5          D          A                       Em7      D/F
  Little by little, we gave you everything you ever dreamed of.
G5          D           A                        Em7    D/F
  Little by little, the wheels of your life have slowly fallen off.
G5          D           A               Em7        D/F
  Little by little, you have to give it all in all your life,
G5            D                                  D/F 
  And all the time, I just ask myself why you're really here.

(Right when Noel sings "here" there's a lead that chimes in and carries all the 
way through the last few lines and to the outro)
   
E--------------------------------------------------------|
B-------------------------------------15v-15v-15v--------|
G-11h12--14--11h12--14--11h12--14---------------------|

G-11h12--14--11h12--14---------------------------------|
D--------------------------------------------------------|  After this go straight 
A--------------------------------------------------------|  to the outro
E--------------------------------------------------------|

(If you don't play the lead, then you play this little instrumental over it until 
the last few lines of the chorus kick in)

| G5   D   | A7sus4  Em7  D/F | G5   D   |

A7sus4  Em7      D/F      G5  D
   Why am I really here?
A7sus4  Em7      D/F      G5  D | Cadd9  G5     
   Why am I really here?

Outro:

|| D      | Dsus2   | D       | Dsus2   ||  Repeat a few times, then...

|| Dsus2  | G5      | Dsus2(#5)| G5     ||  REPEAT TO FADE

Cheers.

About the artist behind Little By Little 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]
