>Par Svensson,
I find this riff a little easier to play than all the stretching in the
previous version:
Main riffs:
e ---5---0-------------------
B ----------6--------0-------
G -------------7--6----------
D -7---7---------------7-----
A ---------------------------
E ---------------------------
>e -------------------------3---1-0---
>B -0/1-1--0/1-1--1/3-3-3-3---3-------
>G -----------------------------------
>D -----------------------------------
>A -----------------------------------
>E -----------------------------------
>A twelve string guitar plays, at "Run around in the radiation":
>e -0-1-----0--0-1-----0--0-1-----0--0-1-----0---
>B ---------------------------1----------1-------
>G -----2-2--------2-2----------2----------2-----
>D ----------------------------------------------
>A ----------------------------------------------
>E ----------------------------------------------
>...and an  Am  Gm  F  pattern at "So still, so dark..."
>Listen where to play the respective part. Not that tricky.
>The chords are pretty easy, simply  Am  F  in the intro,  Am  D  in
>the verses, and  Am  F  in the chorus.
>There are several guitars playing on the record. To play it on just
>one guitar, the following blend of the chords & riffs can be used
>(leave the notes ringing for as long as possible) :
>For the  Am  F  pattern :
>e ---0---0----1---0----------
>B ------------1-------3-1-0--
>G -2---2---2--2-2---2--------
>D -2----------3--------------
>A -0-------------------------
>E ---------------------------
>, and for the  Am  D  one :
>e -------------------------------------------------------------
>B -0/1-1-1--1-1-1--0/1-1-1--1-1-1--1-3-3-3--3-3-3--3---1---0---
>G -2---2-2--2-2-2--2---2-2--2-2-2--2-2-2-2--2-2-2--3---1---0---
>D -2---2-2--2-2-2--2---2-2--2-2-2--2-0-0-0--0-0-0--2-2---2-----
>A -0---0-0--0-0-0--0---0-0--0-0-0--0---------------0-0---0-----
>E -------------------------------------------------------------
>(The rhythm of this can look difficult to follow, however it will
>hopefully make sense when you listen to the song.)

I happened to have FALAA on tonight, and got inspired to figure out
what he's *really* playing.  Close to what I had, but not exactly.
(It's almost exactly what I'd had about two revisions ago... :) Here's
the Real Thing.
