Subject: TAB:  Pretending (performed by Eric Clapton)

  PRETENDING  by Jerry Lynn Williams (performed by Eric Clapton)
              Tab(chords and words actually) submitted by Andy Citron

Piano intro, a few drum hits, then guitar solo around verse chords (lick 1*)

How many times must we tell the tale?
How many times must we fall?
Living in lost memory
You just recalled  (lick 1, guitar only)

Working on the sound of the band (2 part harmony)
Trying to get the music right
Two go out working
Three stay home at night  (lick 2)
  A               E               D
  That's when she said she was pretending
  A          E        D
    Like she knew the plan
  A               E               D
    That's when I knew she was pretending
     A          E         D
  Pretending to understand
     E5          Em7
  Pretending, pretending
     A           E
  Pretending, pretending    (2nd time, repeat 'pretending' part before solo)

  (second time guitar solo here)

Satisfied but lost in love  (2 part harmony)
Situations change           (2 part harmony)
You're never who you used to think you are
How strange    (lick 2)


I get lost in alibis
Sadness can't prevail
Everybody knows strong love
Can't fail  (lick 2)

Don't be pretending about how you feel        (3 part harmony when singing)
Don't be pretending that your love is real    (the word 'pretending')
Don't be pretending about how you feel
Don't be pretending that your love is real
E5          Em7
Pretending, pretending
A           E5
Pretending, pretending

* lick 1 = E  D  B A  G E  E (octave lower)
* lick 2 = A  B  D B  G D E

Notes:  E5 may be E maj or E min, it isn't clear.  The rythm plays E5 and
the solo sometimes plays major 3rd sometimes minor 3rd.

Also, the its not clear if the Em7 is an Em7 or a G with an E in the bass.

I find that these ambiguities are part of the appeal of the song.
