Angels
 ------
>From Yes I Am.

Tune up half-a-half-step to play with the CD. (I'm told that its quite
common studio practice just to 'speed up' the final mix of a track either
to balance out the length of each side of an album or to brighten the
track up a bit. Doesn't stop it being a pain in the machine heads tho').


A                D  (e)             A      (c#)
    Don't be afraid     close your eyes

and they say that it's alright                             this town


[bridge]:

G                                                 Em  (b a  b a  b a)
 this town thinks I'm crazy, they just think I'm strange


G                                                      Em
 sometimes they would own me sometimes they wish I'd change


    Em        *F#m               C#m
but I can feel the thunder underneath my feet


           E                 D                     A %
I sold my soul for freedom,     it's lonely but it's sweet

[repeat verse1]


A D A D to fade

On the keyboard sections (everything except the second verse)- the
UPPERCASE letters are full chords and lowercase are individual notes.
This arrangement doesn't translate very well onto guitar. Suggest
improvising around this basic pattern for verses 1/3 :

    //   D(sus9)                   A                         \\
e -||-------0----2-------0----2-------------0------------0----||--|

    \\                                                       //

D slide E is

This song's quite tricky to play/sing- there are two key changes in the
bridge  * (from A to E) and %(E back down to A).

I keep having trouble with the end of the third line in the verse ($). I
think on keyboard its  " c#   D ", but on guitar, "   A " sounds better,
though every so often it sounds like a Bm. Whaddayathink?


I think there's still plenty of room for improvement here, so feel free
