Love Is the Compass
Words and Music by Martin Smith and Stuart Garrard

This version is the most accurate I could come up with, and is more accurate
than the version already on CGR.  Please note that the guitar and bass parts
are slightly different.  I will post the bass parts at a later time, then will
try to post actual tabs for guitar sometime after that.


(keys only)
D   Dsus      D   Dsus

(guitar and keys)
D   Dsus      D   Dsus

(keys only)
D   Dsus      D   Dsus

(guitar and keys)
D   Dsus      D   Dsus

Bm                       A             
"Falling down . . ."     "Be there . . ." 

G                        G

D       A       G       G
G       G       G       G   <---- 1st time only
D       A       G       G 
    D   D   G   G           <---- 2nd, 3rd, 4th X's

VERSE (Same as before)


A        A        A        A (2/4 measure, then back to 4/4 on . . .) 

Bm       C#m      D        Em

CHORUS (Solo over chorus chords)

Take chorus out

Again, these are the basis chords for which the song is based.  Bass tabs will
be different, as will actual guitar tablature.  Those yet to come.

Correction . . . 4th chord of the chorus chord progression should be Dsus, not G. Best I can tell, anyway.

AAFanGuy25 - 2004-10-11

Great, can't wait. I don't know if this can help you or not.

Verse 1:
bI-10--10--8 x2

Verse 2: (Haven't had much time to do this so sorry. it's probably wrong anyway)

(Verse 1 riff)
