Guinnevere (Crosby, Stills & Nash)
        ==================================

Transcription by Charles Pecheur .

This is a beautiful ballad found on the CSNY (compilation) album "So
Far". It uses an unusual open tuning EBDGAD 
I prefer to play it with a thumb pick to strengthen the bass line. The
transcription has been done entirely by listening to the record. The
original version features two guitars (and sounds like four), but this
reproduces it fairly accurately. Judge by yourself and let me know of
any corrections or improvements.

 Tuning: E B D G A D

Structure:
[Intro]
[Verse 1]
[Verse 2]
[Bridge]

I realized after seeing how you did the intro, I had been doing it wrong all these years. Thanks, Very nice job.
