Abba  Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
       (A Man After Midnight)

Transcribed by Ben Hollis

Im not 100% certain of the intro;
I think the chords are correct but
The picking pattern may be different.
Ive included easy and hard versions;
The hard version sounds a little
Harsh on overdriven guitar because of
The slides.  If anyone knows a better
Way please send in a correction.

Im afraid I dont play keyboard
So youll have to find someone
Else to sort that out for you.

Just before the verse there is a
Bass fill which goes:

A-5-3----------
E-----5-3-1-3

Ive marked this part of the song 
with an asterisk

Apart from this fill the bass plays
Just the root note throughout the song

NC means no chord, so just let ring/
Be silent

In the verse slide a bar chord shape up
>From F5 to G5

In the Pre-Chorus there isnt much of a
harmony part  the chords just show what
the bass is playing

The chorus and the intro seem to have
Slightly different chords, but Im not
certain

The song goes into an instrumental section,
I dont play that bit so its not included
here
