Benjamin Francis Leftwich – Hole In My Hand tab

Capo in 1st Fret.

This song uses a simple finger picking pattern in 3 variations through out the song.

Pattern 1:

E |--------|--------|-0------|-----------|A |-3------|-3------|--------|-----------|D |--------|--------|--------|-----------|G |--4--4-4|--4--4-4|--4--4-4|-0h2--2h4--|B |---3--3-|---3--3-|---3--3-|----3----3-|E |----0---|----0---|----0---|-----0----0|
Pattern 2: The same as Pattern 1 except repeating the 3rd bar instead of the 4th:
E |--------|--------|-0------|-0------|A |-3------|-3------|--------|--------|D |--------|--------|--------|--------|G |--4--4-4|--4--4-4|--4--4-4|--4--4-4|B |---3--3-|---3--3-|---3--3-|---3--3-|E |----0---|----0---|----0---|----0---|
Pattern 3: Just repeating bars 1 and 2 instead of 3 and 4:
E |--------|--------|--------|--------|A |-3------|-3------|-3------|-3------|D |--------|--------|--------|--------|G |--4--4-4|--4--4-4|--4--4-4|--4--4-4|B |---3--3-|---3--3-|---3--3-|---3--3-|E |----0---|----0---|----0---|----0---|
These patterns start AFTER the beginning of each line of the lyrics, so that bar 3 falls immediately after the end of the line, and so that the 2nd half of bar 4 coincides with the start of the following line (e.g. Verse 1 outlined); This playing pattern continues throughout the song except in verse two where Bar1 falls on the first word of each line. [Intro] = Pattern 1 (x2) [Verse 1] = Pattern 1 Bar 1 Bar 2 Bar 3 Bar 4 (1st 1/2) There's nothing we can say or do, (2nd 1/2) Bar 1 Bar 2 Bar 3 Bar 4 To Stop the world from tearing us in two. (2nd 1/2) Bar 1 Bar 2 Bar 3 Bar 4 From your heart I drew the line, (2nd 1/2) Bar 1 Bar 2 Bar 3 Bar 4 Through the water and down your spine. [Chorus] = Pattern 2 I put a hole in my hand to see you I drew a line through the sand to be with you. [Bridge] = Pattern 1 (x2) [Verse 2] = Pattern 1 Can you hear me call your name, In the winter did it sound the same? My gun jammed and my heart stops again, I close my eyes and I see you. [Chorus] = Pattern 2 (x2) [Chorus #2] = Pattern 3 (x6) - Can strum this part softly instead of picking if preferred (NB// this is the acoustic version, slightly different in the EP version) I wanna come home, And I wanna come soon. I wanna come now, And I wanted to be with you. [Chorus] = Pattern 2 Repeat Pattern 2 twice and on the second, end on the open top-string of the 4th bar (play this last bar slower) and let ring.
