	Here's some more by Tracy Chapman:

	If Not Now:

Use a capo barred at the second fret to match the pitch of this one.Follow the transcription as you would any TAB, disregarding the fact thatyou're two frets up. A pitch of "2" is played by plucking the notated stringtwo frets above the capo, not the nut.

Change between G and A on the bridge to the repeat.
Hoped to finish her stuff up here, but looks like there'll be one more posting. I'm not going to include "Behind The Wall" as it's a cappella, but will try to throw in the rest from her first album and what I've figured of "All That You Have Is Your Soul". -Dave # LEWIS CARROLL 1832-1898 ## __________________________ # # | | He thought he saw a buffalo # | David V.
