I find this riff a little easier to play than all the stretching in the
previous version:
Main riffs:

e ---5---0-------------------|B ----------6--------0-------|G -------------7--6----------|D -7---7---------------7-----|A ---------------------------|E ---------------------------|
>e -------------------------3---1-0---|>B -0/1-1--0/1-1--1/3-3-3-3---3-------|>G -----------------------------------|>D -----------------------------------|>A -----------------------------------|>E -----------------------------------|
>A twelve string guitar plays, at "Run around in the radiation":
>e -0-1-----0--0-1-----0--0-1-----0--0-1-----0---|>B ---------------------------1----------1-------|>G -----2-2--------2-2----------2----------2-----|>D ----------------------------------------------|>A ----------------------------------------------|>E ----------------------------------------------|
>...and an Am Gm F pattern at "So still, so dark..." >Listen where to play the respective part. Not that tricky. >The chords are pretty easy, simply Am F in the intro, Am D in >the verses, and Am F in the chorus. >There are several guitars playing on the record. To play it on just >one guitar, the following blend of the chords & riffs can be used >(leave the notes ringing for as long as possible) : >For the Am F pattern :
>e ---0---0----1---0----------|>B ------------1-------3-1-0--|>G -2---2---2--2-2---2--------|>D -2----------3--------------|>A -0-------------------------|>E ---------------------------|
>, and for the Am D one :
>e -------------------------------------------------------------|>B -0/1-1-1--1-1-1--0/1-1-1--1-1-1--1-3-3-3--3-3-3--3---1---0---|>G -2---2-2--2-2-2--2---2-2--2-2-2--2-2-2-2--2-2-2--3---1---0---|>D -2---2-2--2-2-2--2---2-2--2-2-2--2-0-0-0--0-0-0--2-2---2-----|>A -0---0-0--0-0-0--0---0-0--0-0-0--0---------------0-0---0-----|>E -------------------------------------------------------------|

Nelson) I happened to have FALAA on tonight, and got inspired to figure out what he's *really* playing. Close to what I had, but not exactly. (It's almost exactly what I'd had about two revisions ago... :) Here's the Real Thing.
