Take Me
Artist: OASIS
Song: TAKE ME
Tunning: STANDARD
Tabbed By: INDIE NATION (DAN)

Lyrics: Liam Gallagher
Music: Noel Gallagher and Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs

A very early demo song, recorded somewhere around 1992, before the band
was signed. Not available on any studio album, you might find it on rare
bootlegs such as "The Lost Tapes". You could also try to download it.

(NOTE: There are a lot of different guitar parts in this song, so you might
have a hard time knowing what is what in this tab. To make it easier to
navigate, I have written the lyrics between the parts. You should be able
to work it out without too much trouble. Good luck!)

Tab key:

h = hammer on
b = bend
r = release bend
\ = slide down

This is the main rhythm riff Bonehead plays through the whole song except the solo:

I always knew I could be someone
Take me, if you think you're right
But do it now, before it's light

This song is amazing! It's a shame they don't re-record it and release it
on a Lp studio album. Try hard to get this rare masterpiece! It's
well worth the struggle beleive me.

Enjoy!

About the artist behind Take Me:

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]
