A Thousand Miles - Vanessa Carlton sur
Vanessa Carlton - 'A Thousand Miles' from the album 'Be Not Nobody' Tabulature-version from the 7th of October 2003, transcribed and tabbed by Thomas Mitterfellner Since I think the other versions of this song I found on the net (on the one done by Luke Seymour) are not too helpful I hereby attempt to provide a more accurate yet playable transcription for guitar. I also made up some chords you can strum to accompany the singing if you don't want to fingerpick. Those are constructed from the very rich choice of notes you can hear being played on the record by different instruments like strings, bass, piano and voice. G they're not always simple chords but sometimes I tried to incorporate parts of the bassline or the vocal line (like the strange sounding Bmaj7sus4/E that resolves into a more familiar sounding F#sus4; see chorus). If you have any comments, suggestions, corrections you want me to know about please write to: and/or Possible updated version: Notes: > Whenever (sometimes slightly modified) parts of the intro riff occur (like in VerseB or PreBridge) just use the chords from the intro. > Chords for VerseA, VerseC, VerseD, Bridge are those listed above the respective tabulature. > Numbers below a tabulature should be suggestions which fingers to use for fretting: 1 index 2 middle 3 ring 4 pinky Tuning: Standard (E A D G B E) - 'A Thousand Miles' Chords: Chords in brackets indicate they're the same already mentioned.

In addition you can decide whether to play B (0) or F# (7), the way I tabbed it is just a suggestion. Chords tabulated in 3rd bar are an attempt to incorporate the bassline but are quite difficult to play; maybe substitute standard chords noted above the tab here. * VerseB * S S S S S S S S S S S S E S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S S |-7---7-6---6-2---2---2---------|-7---7-6---6-2---2---2------------||---| |---0-----0-----0---0---0-4-2-0-|---0-----0-----0---0---0-4h5-4-2-o||---| |-------------------------------|----------------------------------||---| |-------4-----1-----------2-----|-------4-----1-----------2--------||---| |-7-----------------------------|-7-------------------------------o||---| |-------------------------------|----------------------------------||---| * PreBridge * S S S S S S S.
