Speak Soft - by poor old lu.

(I know they didn't write it originally, but I am transcribing their adaptation
from the "Straight Six" EP.)  I tried my best to combine guitar & piano in the
middle part.  Cool chords in this song...the 'baby don't you talk' part of the
chorus doesn't sound right without the vocal melody, but I think that is what
he is playing.  My band Leslie Can't Love plays this song so I thought I would
transcribe it.  It sounds like Aaron Sprinkle is using a Phase or
Phase-shifter from the 70's.
