Hello, welcome to This is a very simple site set up purely to hold all the Nick Drake tabs I've worked out over the years, and keep them up to date with additions or corrections that I might discover or which people might send me. (You can contact me at chrishealey[aatt], replacing [aatt] with @. Please write NICK DRAKE in the subject line or I may miss your mail amongst the waves of spam.) The tabs are of course provided for free - I hope you enjoy playing them as much as I do.
