Graceland (The Bible!)
----------------------

This is on 'Random Acts of Kindness' and also 'Walking the Ghost Back Home' by
The Bible! Written by Boo Hewerdine and Tony Shepherd. Unless there's
something wrong with my CD player or guitar tuning (quite possible), the key
seems to be about halfway between G and Ab. Below is written as though played
in G at the nut.


                                    v     v                    v        ^a

ooh ooh ooh , etc.  over A E D E


Right hand:
v is a downstroke
^ is an upstroke
Va is slightly arpeggiated downstroke
^a is slightly arpeggiated upstroke
N.C. is no chord

* The section "oo oo oo, all my wanting. .  . waiting. working, etc." is
played as the lowest 4 notes in each chord, played as a slow arpeggio, but
this can sound a bit thin without keyboards underneath it, so strumming this
bit might be better unless you're playing with a band.

h is A hammer-on


EADGBe
320003 - G
XX0000 - G+6
XX0232 - D
XX0233 - Dsus (h is A hammer-on from D)
XX023x - D2   hit it hard on the D&G strings
X32010 - C
022100 - E
0221xx - E2   hit it hard on the bass strings
022200 - Esus
x02220 - A


Any improvements welcome.
