Nighttime [Big Star] - Elliott Smith version

Transcribed by Jennifer Cuellar

[billypumpkinzero@hotmail.com]

Here's my transcribed Elliott version of

"Nighttime," which could be wrong but hey! I tried. I used the

simplest

chords possible and took the lyrics from Charlie's site. There's a lot of

noticeable upstrokes

and downstrokes throughout the song and the C's that

come after the G's always come on an upstroke.

Any comments or corrections

are welcome, as I'm sure there are some corrections to be made. :)
