So here are the chords for 'Snowfall' by that unfortunately underground
basement punk/pop band 'The Halo Benders'. I heard the Halo Benders' excellent 'Don't touch my bikini' on 
Alternative Nation, hired the album and have become a fan ever since.

The chords are taken from the original version from the first track from the album 'God make no junk'. 
I think)

'Snowfall' is a beautiful song with I think about 3 guitars and one of those Latin-American shakers as 
(Forgot the name) Of course there's also a bass guitar. The chords written out below are what the lead guitar plays.
The lyrics (incomplete) are also my own (bad) interpretation, with a lot of help from my good friend 
who actually got my Halo Benders addiction started! Rock on, Steph! Note that sometimes two voices are singing, 
low sexy voice and one normal one.
So don't get confused, and good luck!

Snowfall
by Halo Benders


Here are the chords used.Strum them lightly. I use an acoustic guitar.


			 E		  Esus			G#				A				Am				B				C#m				F				F#			F#m
e|--0-----0-----4-----5----5-----7-----9-----1----2-----2-----|
b|--0-----0-----4-----5----5-----7-----9-----1----2-----2-----|
G|--1-----2-----5-----6----5-----8-----9-----2----3-----2-----|
D|--2-----2-----6-----7----7-----9-----11----3----4-----4-----|
A|--2-----2-----6-----7----7-----9-----11----3----4-----4-----|
E|--0-----0-----4-----5----5-----7-----9-----1----2-----2-----|

Throughout the whole song, you kind of keep your fingers in the same position, using your middle finger to 
whether to play a minor (m) chord or not.

E           G#                    A          Am

(snowfall)																							(snowfall)        --->   l.v.
