Artist: Clare Marlo acoustic layout by Paolo Santos
Tabbed by: Mako Torres
Song: Till they take my heart away (acoustic version)


I couldn't find any tabs of this great song anywhere on the net so instead of
waiting for it to come i just made my own. it's a classic  piece by Clair Marlo
and i think Paolo santos made a wonderful job of working it into an acoustic
version. Here are just the chords to the whole song but they're in the dreaded
tablature version because i don't know the chord names. they are fingerpicked
throughout most of the song. i'm too lazy to sketch out the plucking and the
timing so listen to the song for the patterns. it'll be easy once you've listened
to it now that you have the chords. if you love sentimental songs like most the
filipinos i know and don't have this yet then download it from kazaa. its a
perfect song for that special someone! hope to see more acoustic tabs out there
by paolo santos. any comments or corrections pls email me at
tito_puento@yahoo.com. P.S. Paolo! it's not perfect but i hope i got the gist of
what you played. pls send me the acoustic guitar tab of overjoyed by stevie wonder thnx.

John!! maiinggit ka dito!! haha

|B|-----4-------5--------0--------------------------------
|G|-----4-------4--------6--------------------------------
|D|-----X-------X--------7--------------------------------
|A|-----X-------4--------5--------------------------------
|E|-----0-------X--------X--------------------------------

Note: while listening to the song you will hear some variations from the B string
in chord II of the verse. in this instance he plays from (X4X450) to (X4X440)
variably.

|A|-----X-------2-------0--------4------4--------2----------------||
|E|-----0-------0-------X--------X------2--------X----------------||

Note: the variation in the third chord also holds for chord VII in the refrain
(because chords II and VII are the same)

2nd Refrain  (same as the first but with an additional chord X with both chords
to fill in the timing of the first. once again refer to the song to get the
timing right.

Note: there is an intro to this instrumental part which is the last part of the
second refrain2. (it is specified anyway) instrumental is similar to refrain 1
and 2 but there are chord changes like power chords because they sound better
when strummed. also the song switches this to higher keys
