Walk Away
---------
Artist: Ben Harper
Album: Welcome To The Cruel World
Tabbed by: Briac Pilpre 

Tuning : D B C F A D (1 tone lower than standard tuning)
Tempo: about 65


 A really easy, yet beautiful song. The timing is the most difficult
thing in this song. There might be some errors, especially in the bridge,
but it sounds really close...
 The 'e' and 's' below the tabs represent eighth and sixteenth notes.
 'h' means hammer-on.

**********************************************************************************************************


Ben Harper, The Will to Live 
from the album The Will to Live, 1997

Tuning - standard guitar tuning with the bottom E string
dropped to D

Note that Ben plays this with a slide on his weissenborn,
but you can still play this by using your index finger as a barre.

Intro and verse riff:
E-------------------------------------------------
B-------------------------------------------------
G-------------------------------------------------
D-------------------------------------------------
A-----------5----3--2--0-------------5--3--2--0---
D---0--0---------------------0--0-----------------


Just before the chorus - i.e. at the words "she's still alive"
play:
E----------------------------------------
B---------------------------3------------
G---------------------------2------------
D---------------------------0------------
A-----------5--3--2--0------0------------
D----0--0-------------------0------------

and hold the D chord until:
with plenty of distortion
    Eb      Bb        F       C
E--------------------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------------------
G--------------------------------------------------
D---1-------8---------3-------10-------------------
A---1-------8---------3-------10-------------------
D---1-------8---------3-------10-------------------

this is the chord progression for the chorus and the end bit,
and the sort of siren sound that Ben gets in the last chorus can
be imitated by bending the B string upwards at the 11th and 13th
frets, provided your amp is going flat out
