Title : ANOTHER LONELY DAY
Author : Ben Harper
Transcriber : Christophe Decugis (cdecugis@club-internet.fr)

This is an improved version of the tab already existing at OLGA
The first version was written from,

  traps@ix.netcom.com (Arvin Chen)

who I thank for the words I've duplicated the words from him.

The differences are important :
1 - I've tried to respect the exact rythm for the song.
2 - This version is more difficult because there are more
chords and variations between transitions in the song.
3 - The result is a richer sound much closer to the original.
4 - For absolute beginners I suggest the other version,
which is very pleasant to play also.


This is typically the song for acoustic guitar players to play
around a warm fire, in the wilderness with the stars above...

Ben Harper plays this song one step down (d,F,A,C,G,d),
but it works perfectly with the usual tuning.

The Rythm is very important to respect on that song.
Work the song at slow tempo at first !

It's quite hard to sing along when playing at the right rythm
but if you manage it, you'll be rewarded for your efforts !

Good luck and enjoy
