Slash Ft. Chris Cornell - Promise.                                       [ FEBRUARY, 2016 ]
" Play In 1/2 down tune aka Eb tuning for the studio version with chris
or play it in standard for the live version with myles "

I love this song and I'll show you how to play it correctly through my eyes.
Play this on an acoustic guitar with a cut away, restring it with a light gage electric set.
D'Addario NYXL 09|42 Electrics is what I use for my Unique 80's acoustic tone on my Modified 
YamahaFGX700SC.

The song is composed in E standard / E A D G b e /

The Song Consists of these Chords.

You had that far away look in your eyes

And heaven's eyes shined down upon you

        D#/G#                     A#/D#   G 
And the whole room filled up with light



Cm                                     D#
Now the cruel world it's gonna try and change you

       D#/G#                          A#/D#   G
Try to hang you up and mess with your pride
