"Drift Away"
Dobie Gray
Tuning--Standard (EADG)


One of my favorite songs. Relaxing to play, relaxing to listen to. Extremely easy to
too. Enjoy.


NOTES--Keep the verses and the bridge in simple, single-note form. You can have more fun
the chorus, because the accompaniment joins in more for that part, but this is mostly a
piece, so bear that in mind as you're playing this. You can play a pickup note from the 
pitch when there's a chord change, but I wouldn't suggest adding much more than that.


INTRO--I don't think this was in the original cut, but it goes well with the song. Use
if you like.
