Title: Love Broke Thru
Album: live acoustic version
Transcribed by: Phil Rose
Email: prose@ibm.net or prose@starfishsoftware.com

Here is an "unplugged" version of Love Broke Thru as performed live by PK
(from a concert recorded with permission back in the early eighties, sorry
tape is not available).  The riffs are as performed, but the finger picking
is not exact.  It varies between verses;  sounds best with two acoustic
guitars (only one playing most of the riffs, but doubling the slides during
the verse and chorus).  Most of the full chords are strummed.  The rhythm
is similar (maybe a little slower) to the ablum version...

q = quarter note
e = eighth note
s = sixteenth notes
t = triplet sixteenth notes

repeat chorus once, then do variations of intro chord progression 
(A D/A G D/F#) two times, then start next verse...
End with guitar solo over this intro progression.  I can provide a
transcription of a Phil Keaggy solo over this progression if anyone is
interested...
