Here's Saxon's wonderful power-ballad called 'Absent Friends'. It's a song you all 
should know.

Verse:

(Try to make variations with Dsus4! Hear the song and find out when to vary.)

D                  G
  You went in the morning
D                     G
  We didn't say good-bye
D                       G
  The friends that you left here
         Em7/B       Asus4
  Wonder why, wonder why


D                 G
  I wish I could see you
D             G
  Just for a day
D              G
  Tell you we missed you
                 Em7/B            Asus4
  And ask you to stay, ask you to stay


Chorus:
              D        Cadd4
  To absent friends
                  Em                 Cmaj7
  This one's for you, this one's for you
              D        Cadd4
  To absent friends
                  Em                 Cmaj7
  This one's for you, this one's for you


  You went without warning
  We didn't even know
  Just like the good ones
  It was your turn to go
  Your turn to go

  To absent friends (to absent friends)
  This one's for you (this one's for you)
  This one's for you
  To absent friends (to absent friends)
  This one's for you (this one's for you)
  This one's for you


Solo:

(Try variations with Cadd4 / Cadd2 / Cmaj7 or other - it's impossible to hear it! Make 
sure that it sounds/feels good.)

       Em   C   Em   C
       Em   C   D    D
       Em   C   Em   C
       Em   C   D    D


Bm              D
  When we're together
Bm                  D
  You stand at our side
Bm                  D
  We'll raise our glasses
                Cadd4
  And toast you tonight
               A
  Toast you tonight


  You went in the morning
  We didn't say good-bye
  The friends that you left here
  Wonder why, wonder why

  I wish I could see you
  Just for a day
  Tell you we missed you
  And ask you to stay
  Ask you to stay

  To absent friends (to absent friends)
  This one's for you (this one's for you)
  This one's for you
  To absent friends (to absent friends)
  This one's for you (this one's for you)
  This one's for you
  To absent friends (to absent friends)
  This one's for you (this one's for you)
  This one's for you
  To absent friends (to absent friends)
  This one's for you
  This one's for you
  This one's for you


(I'll try to tab the solo as soon as I get a guitar with more than 21 frets.)
