TOMMY
by The Who
[note from original submission:] Well, here it is. This took
a long time so I hope it helps someone. I'm responsible for
the content, except "Tommy's Holiday Camp" by Pete Palmer
[[email protected]] and "Pinball Wizard" by someone
named Marc Hirsh. So all mistakes in lyrics/chords/notes/
keys/typos/etc can be attributed to myself.
Please send any proofs to [email protected] I don't
know how to archive (since no one wanted to tell me how) so
I'll let someone else do that.
I've written things for one guitar (most of the time)
but like Jimmy Page, Townshend likes to layer things, horns,
etc. It all sounds pretty close. But weaknesses abound, so
correct as you like. I figured out everything here and
something could be (probably is) wrong.

OVERTURE by The Who
[Note: The much-heated debate over the opening chords of
Tommy has led me to include two versions of differing
opinions -- You choose which one -- or mix and match -- you
like better...then submit your own. (From Spencer K. Heine,
Jeff Williams, and Litgo]

There is A LOT more going on here but I don't have the guitar
in front of me or the record and anyway it's pointless trying
to get the exact strumming down, but you finger it like that.

This transcription is not great, but it's as close as
I'm going to get to putting on paper Townshend's maniacal
style. I apologize for inaccuracy. I figured out everything
here and something may be (probably is) in error.

SPARKS by The Who
Unfortunately, the guitars on the record are tuned down to
C[C#], or something like that. This is the way I've heard
Pete play it live (in key of E), but the same solo as on the
record. [use the woodstock version from kids are alright, or
the 30 years box set]

EYESIGHT TO THE BLIND by The Who (written by Sonny Boy Williamson)

I'm tabbing the other one, though they switch off. Listen to

Her daddy gave her magic,

Every time she starts to shakin',

SOLO:
Unfortunately, Pete plays the solo on either a guitar
tuned to Eb, or the E string tuned down to Eb (or maybe ALL
the guitars tuned down), so if you don't have two guitars you
can either 1) play all chords up a 1/2 step or 2) don't pluck
the low E string on the solo and play it in Eb. This is the
way it's played on record. (In the key of E)

Surrounded by his friends,

Only if he's cured will his

PINBALL WIZARD by The Who
[original note:] `e' stands for eighth notes, `s' for
sixteenth, `q' for quarter, `h' for half, and, yes, even `w'
for whole notes. The rapid strumming parts can be fairly
improvised. The chords in the first 6 bars are strummed at a
speed so that you can almost hear each individual note. A
slide is indicated by a `/' for up and `' for down. A period
after a note value means dotted. The chord parts are best
played with your index finger on the B string, middle on the
G string (using pinky for pull-offs), and ring finger on the
D string, with the thumb wrapping around and playing the low
E string. Sounds hard, but gets easier with practice.

He ain't got no distractions
Can't hear no buzzers and bells
Don't see lights a-flashin'
Plays be sense of smell
Always gets a replay
I've never seen him fall
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball
I thought I was the Bally table king
But I just handed my pinball crown to him
