NAZARETH - Broken Down Angel
(Agnew, Charlton, Sweet, McCafferty)
Nazareth 1973

This is the way I play the song. It is quite simple, nevertheless there is no doubt 
about Broken Down Angel being one of Nazareth's classics. 
It is best played by two guitar players, for the simple reason that sometimes both
the lead and the rhythm guitar are equally important at the same time. By the way,
if you play it with two guitars, one should try to play the accompaniment of the 
verse and also the chorus an octave higher/lower than the other one. Doing so, 
each one has something to play, and it sounds fantastic. Enjoy!
