Artist: The Sundays
Title:  life & soul
Source: "Blind" (CD) (?1992 published in the US by the David Geffen Company)

transcribed by: Mitch Wiedemann (mc2@lightlink.com)
on:     18 December 1997

4/4 time standard tuning (EADGBe) low to high

The song on the CD is played with at least two guitars (one acoustic
and one electric) this transcription is arranged for the acoustic.

*****Picking:
Dave Gavurin uses slighly different picking patterns throughout
the song, I've chosen the following one, it seems to work nicely.
(shown for the B and G chords)

         B                      G(add C)
        ----------------------------------------------------------|
        -------4-----4--------------------------------------------|
        -----4---4-----4--------------5-----5---------------------|
        ---4-------4----------------5---5-----5-------------------|
        -2------------------------5-------5-----------------------|
        ------------------------3---------------------------------|
fingers: T 1 2 3 2 1 3 2

T = Thumb (bass note of the chord)
1 = first finger
2 = second finger
3 = third finger
(of course, you can use a flatpick if you like)

*****Chords:
along with some chords i suggest some alternates to maximize the
use of open strings (and reduce hand fatigue)

  B     C   C     Bb    G(add C) G(add C)     F
           alt.                    alt.

--4-----5---------3--------5------------------2------------------|
--4-----5---2-----3--------5------------------3------------------|
--2-----3---3-----1--------5------------------3------------------|
---------------------------3--------3---------1------------------|

Note: use of alternate chords changes the picking slightly.

                                 all___     my___       blue___

play the and sing the above 4 measures about 6 times and then try
to find a stylish way to end the song.
(you'll look silly trying to fade out like the song does)
