"Love Alone" by Caedmon's Call

The prominent string instrument is a "papoose," which is basically a small
guitar.  It's tuned like a guitar, but 5 half-steps higher, i.e. ADGCEA (to
match standard guitar tuning EADGBE).  I think maybe this papoose tuned GDGCDG
(corresponding to DADGAD)--or something close--and capo 4.  But I haven't
worked it out.  So for now I just put standard key-of-A guitar chord fingerings
(listed under PAPOOSE) that you could use on a standard-tuned capo 2 papoose.
You could also capo 7 on a guitar and use these.  If anybody wants to buy me
a papoose so I try this out, email me!

Another way to play this to sound like the recording would be capo 2 on a
high-strung guitar.  This is the way the original version of "Piece Of Glass"
is played on thed Intimate Portrait EP.  The third through sixth strings (EADG)
are the small strings from a 12-string guitar, so they are an octave higher.
This gives a distinctive sound, but the cool thing is that you can play the
song on a normal guitar and use exactly the same chord fingerings, though it
of course sounds a bit different since some of the notes are an octave lower.
I listed these fingerings under GUITAR.  This is my favorite way to play it
so far, which is why I listed it first and named the chords in the key of D.
Of course, the actual key of the song is E major.

Sorry for the confusing, incomplete and inaccurate description.  Maybe I'll
fix it up later.  I'm interested to see how Aaron dealt with this in the
songbook, maybe he'll give more than just the rhythm guitar chords.  Buy the
songbook!  http://caedmonscall.com/merch.htm
