This looks really good! I've looked for this for some time now and I'm very glad you took the trouble to figure is out and put it on UG!

Cheers!

Thank you Aatvza,I hope you enjoy playing it. Gentle Giant were my favourite band for many years, saw them on their first tour and followed their career. I am self- taught, so most of their material is way beyond my abilities, but this track luckily seemed to work out OK on just a guitar. Over the years, apart from those at early Giant gigs, I have only ever met one other fan, but I guess there must still be some out there. I did manage to convert a few friends to their music, but I think the band were way ahead of their time and didn't get the full recognition they should have.

Yes there are some other fans for example in old Germany. I am very happy to find a chord sequence that works. Of course you would need a keyboard to play it as the original song sounds. But nevertheless this is a wonderful adaption for guitar. Thanks a lot!
