Subject: CRD: Porcelain by Better than Ezra

PORCELAIN  by BETTER THAN EZRA
off the album DELUXE
transcription by Scott Josselyn (sjosselyn@aol.com)

This song is pretty easy once you get the hang of the rhythm and 
flourishes. In addition to the flourishes that I've tried to notate, 
they sometimes use Cadd4 as a passing chord in the G/B-C-F/A passages 
between the C and F/A chords. I don't hear it in the song but I also 
like to throw a Fmaj7/A into the F/A vamps sometimes. There is also 
some bass hammer-on  played over the F/A chord soemtimes that I couldn't
figure out.

CAPO 1ST FRET !!!
