Angels
 ------
>From Yes I Am.

Tune up half-a-half-step to play with the CD. (I'm told that its quite
common studio practice just to 'speed up' the final mix of a track either
to balance out the length of each side of an album or to brighten the
track up a bit. Doesn't stop it being a pain in the machine heads tho').


A                D  (e)             A      (c#)
    Don't be afraid     close your eyes

(b)           D                A
  lay it all down    don't you cry
                                                       A - guitar
                    D                             (c#) D -keyboard
    can't you see I-I'm going where I can see the sun rise  -$

This arrangement doesn't translate very well onto guitar. Suggest improvising around this basic pattern for verses 1/3 :
// D(sus9) A \\e -||-------0----2-------0----2-------------0------------0----||--|B -||------3--3---3-----3--3---3------0------2------0-----2---||--|G -||.----2------------2-------------2---2---------2--2------.||--|D -||.---0------------0-------------2-------------2----------.||--|A -||------------------------------0-------------0------------||--|E -||---------------------------------------------------------||--| \\ //

I keep having trouble with the end of the third line in the verse ($). I think on keyboard its " c# D ", but on guitar, " A " sounds better, though every so often it sounds like a Bm. Whaddayathink? I think there's still plenty of room for improvement here, so feel free :>) Nic Nic.Boulton@cw.mercury.co.uk
