Waves Of Salt Chords

   
Waves of Salt - Henry ate

This song is being played with the help of a capodaster at the first fret. So actually you play the whole song in C# instead of C, but the song is transcribed as if you are playing in normal tuning. The song is played in a neat fingerpicking style. The high E is never played. Instead, the C (played at the B-string) is played continually throughout the whole song. 
The chords might look a bit scary, but just take a normal C chord. C/B means that same chords, but only with a B in the bass. Just lower the bass note of the normal C one fret lower and there you have the C/B. All other chords follow that same principle. Just as you make sure that you continuously play the C note on the second string, first fret. 

When you look at the chords, you can see a bassline walking from C - B - F - G  and back to C. This ‘walking bass’ is played solely on the fifth (A) and sixth (E) string. Only in the chorus the fourth string(D) is used in the C/F* , C/E chords. (C/F* has an * because this chord played with a different bass note compared to the ‘normal’ C/F)


C	  C/B	 C/F	C/G
Waves of salt and sand in whispers

C	C/B	C/F	C/G 
Held in your hand

C	C/B	  C/F	    C/G
A magic heart that takes you away

C		    C/B  	    C/F	   C/G 
From the things you just don’t understand

C       C/B   C/F	       C/G       C	   C/B	  C/F	C/G		
Color me a tragedy in blue and I will think of you

It’s funny how your heart desires 

	   C		C/B	C/F	C/G
What your soul can never let you do 

	C/F*  C/E C	      C/B	      C/A (Am7)	
And you still wait hiding your head so low

       C C/B  C/A	C/F
The silence was broken

C/G		C	C/B	C/F	C/G
Here you didn’t let go 


So catch your breath in a jar of steel 
To keep till your day of passing 
In a box underneath your soul kept safe
With only your g-d watching

And you still wait
Hiding your head so low
The silence was broken
Here you didn’t let go

      C/F*	C/E C/F*  C/E
Now I	will,  I 	   will
C/F*  C/G  C/F#	C/F	   C	C/B	C/F	C/G	
I       will,  I 	will never know

Waves of salt and sand in whispers
Held in your hand
A magic heart that takes me away 
From the things you just don’t understand

So color me a tragedy in blue and I will think of you
It’s funny how your heart desires 
What your soul can never let you do

And you still wait
Hiding your head so low
The silence was broken 
Here you didn’t let go

       C/F* C/E  C/F* C/E
Now I     will,   I      will

C/F* C/E  C/F#   C/F	C/G
I      will,  I         will never know
