   CAN'T FIND MY WAY HOME    By Steve Winwood    From Blind Faith

The original recording uses a second overdubbed guitar track to fill
in  various  rhythms and riffs  thus  making  playing  CFMWH  solo a
daunting but not impossible task.

The basic picking pattern below forms the foundation for  everything
else.  Get the basic picking pattern down cold then  add in whatever
flourishes and riffs that you can squeeze in.

Play  with a pronounced  syncopation  in the  rhythm.  Emphasize the
first bass note in  each  measure,  picking  the second bass note of
each measure lightly, if at all.

h = hammer on,  p = pull off

Basic picking pattern:

Use the same syncopation throughout. ========================================================= D7sus G Come down off your throne Gm/Bb D And leave your body alone F G D Somebody must change You are the reason I've been waiting so long Somebody holds the key G A Asus D Dsus D Well I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time Em G F#m Em D And I'm wasted and I can't find my way home Come down own your own And leave your money at home <- lyrics on album jacket but... ..."And leave your body alone" is sung on the album. Somebody must change You are the reason I've been waiting all these years Somebody holds the Key I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time Oh and I'm wasted and I can't find my way home Repeat the following using the chords from the first verse, ending on a D major: But I can't find my way home But I can't find my way home But I can't find my way home But I can't find my way home Still I can't find my way home And I aint done nothing wrong But I can't find my way home ======================================================================== Notes on chords: The opening chord is a D7sus missing the fifth. This resolves naturally into the following G chord. The chord in the third measure is an inversion of a Gm with the flatted third in the bass. The two suspended chords in the chorus are very important as they lead the progression into the chords that follow. ========================================================================
