Angle on chords, we are in the Capo three position, just check the tuning here when in the capo three in position. And the trickiest beat is of course in seeing in that off beat line. I got this from an acoustic guitar magazine so it might be a good source to look for some stuff. But anyway, you are in D position for the third capo position, capo three and you are in a D. So watch as I will try to do the zoom in when I throw it up to the computer. Take it up to the D into the C. Now actually it is a B but to find C, so B on a B string and then go to G suspended. We have done that G suspension on so many songs.
So B, C note, G suspension then watch this again, D, okay so, let us try that again. So you are doing a lot of hammer on here. We are doing normal speed here. Now notice I am playing on the side of E7 or the E minor 7 really. All right, that is not exactly right but I am playing from here, the middle finger now. That is the trickiest part of the whole song, then there is the “I grow so tired” just before the chorus, that goes into an E minor 7 so I am going to do E minor 7. Okay and then Remblon is just, I made some of this. I made it up myself, E, G, try to bring that lead line in like the lead bass line that you hear.
Now that second verse has got a break and then they go into a lead, so that is the—[Demo] that may go to the B, then we have got that C note again, a little tricky there. Then it goes on to the chorus on Remblon and then that second lay, which is the tricky lead that you want to try to check in with the G, playing the G like so. So that is a little bit tricky, it is a little quicker with the hammer on with it. You are actually a pull off. Then there was my personal resolve but I came out of that to come back to the verse so—I just went into this C, G, Am, B, and then suspend it, G, Em, G. That way I can get back into the—and then I would go.
That is the whole beat. I hope I did not go too fast. If I did, let me know. I will do it much slower and try to get more close-ups. But it is one of my favorite songs. It is a bit tricky but then you should have some fun with that. I will see you then.
