Hymn For The Missing
album: Until We Have Faces
tabbed by ambient203

Tuning: Standard
Capo 1

x = muted strings


This is an interpretation of Hymn For The Missing by Red. I emphasize
the bass notes on the 1st, 4th, 6th beat of the chord in the intro (I put
in little arrows). This is a cool song, there's a nice key change and some
harmonic minor things going on in the bridge. I tried to notate the intro
piano, but there are some devoiced notes I didn't include/can't figure out.
Sorry that the chords are so bunched up, I wanted to fit four measures
into one bar.

I tried to mimic Michael's voice with some chord alterations, like an
added A on the Em, etc. I wrote out all the unusual chords below.
Some of the names are incorrect, but I wanted to make it a little simpler
since it's already pretty complex. I'm sorry if the alternate chords are
irritating and in the way, but I think they make playing the song more fun.
Enjoy all! If you wanna know how I play chords or something, just comment.

Remember, capo 1!
