Subject: TAB: Hand of Kindness by Richard Thompson


HAND OF KINDNESS - Richard Thompson
(Songs of PolyGram International, Inc., BMI)

Arranged for solo guitar by Alan Bostick (abostick@netcom.com).

This arrangement is fairly sparse.  It consists of the guitar part of
Thompson's song "Hand of Kindness" from the album of the same name
(Hannibal/Rykodisc) plus an alternating bass line. I have tried to
be faithful to the original, but there are a couple of places where
the arrangement departs in (I hope) minor ways.

I have tried to keep the rhythm consistent: one beat in a 4/4 measure
takes up 8 characters in the tab. In other words, a single character
width represents a thirty-second note.  The words under the tab are
kind of mushed together to attempt to show the timing of the lyrics.

On the record, Thompson plays an extended solo between the second chorus
and verse 3.  He ends the song by repeating the chorus on verse 3, and
soloing over the groove while the song fades out.  When I play, I don't
play a solo -- I go straight from verse 2 to verse 3 -- and I end the song
by going back to the groove after the second verse 3 chorus, and closing on
the arpeggiated D7sus2 chord.

The tab was prepared using Ofir Zwebner's program, TAB MASTER v1.0

Verses: 1. Well, I wove the rope And I picked the spot Well, I stuck out my neck And I tightened the knot Oh, stranger, stranger How near our time (*in the liner notes it is "It don't do to waste time") You stretch out your hand I stretch out mine Chorus: Maybe just the hand of kindness Maybe just the hand of kindness Maybe just a hand Stranger will you reach me in time In time 2. Well I scuppered the ship And I bent the rail And I cut the brake And I ripped the sail And they called me a Jonah It's a sin I survived You stretch out your hand I stretch out mine 3. Shoot that old horse Break in the new The hung are many The living are few I see your intention Here's my neck on the line You stretch out your hand I stretch out mine Arranged and transcribed by Alan Bostick (abostick@netcom.com)
