This is probably the simplest song that Caedmon's Call plays, but it sounds
great!  Both Derek and Cliff play, though both the same part.  In concert,
Cliff plays a straight chord progression, while Derek is doing the fancy
hammer-ons and such you hear, as well as the solo.  This song, btw, is in G.
Anyway, here it is:

Clean Guitar 


(Play twice)

Verse 1:
D      Cadd9  D      Cadd9  G
D      Cadd9  D      Cadd9  G
D      Cadd9  D      Cadd9  G
D      Cadd9  D
Cadd9  G

Cadd9  G  Cadd9 G  D

G      D
Cadd9  Cadd9
G      D
Cadd9  Cadd9

I tried to break it up into sections where you can hear a "pause".  listen to
the cd, you'll see what i mean.

NOTE on Solo: 2 things about this.  1st, it is my interpretation, so the
fingerings might be different than Derek's, but it sounds the exact same,
i checked several times.  2nd, i play solo guitar, so i have added come
chord inversions where usually cliff would play, to fill it out.  so
sometimes there is _more_ here than on the CD.  as always, mail me if you
are lost.

Verse 2: (Same as Verse 1)

Cadd9 G  D  (This time the Cadd9 G after verse is played only once)

Chorus (See above)

(Intro Lick is played ONCE)

Em    Am7
Em    Am7
Em    Am7
Em    D     Barre-D (10th fret) 



Pick through D-Cadd9-G slowly (ritard)

Chord Signatures:


G Cadd9 D   Em    Am7  Barre-D (10th fret)
