OK, here goes. You need to tune the guitar to open D (DADF#Ad). However, as the top two
strings are not needed, I normally just retune the 6th and 3rd strings, cos I'm lazy! I
am doing this from memory, so I am not 100% sure that the notes for the Em chord are
completely accurate, but they sound alright when I play it. Corrections gratefully received!

If you just wanna strum along in normal tuning the chords are:
D(sus4), Bm(6), Em(9)
Numbers in brackets indicate the voicings he changes between - sounds OK just playing
the basic chords as well though.

Played fingerstyle:

Intro/Verse:

D(sus4)
d-]-----------------]-----------------]
A-]-----------------]-----------------]
F#]---0-----1-----0-]---0-----1-----0-]
D-]-----0-----0-----]-----0-----0-----]
A-]-----------------]-----------------]
D-]-0-----0-----0---]-0-----0-----0---]

Bm(6)
d-]-----------------]-----------------]
A-]-----------------]-----------------]
F#]---0-----1-----0-]---0-----1-----0-]
D-]-----0-----0-----]-----0-----0-----]
A-]-2-----2-----2---]-2-----2-----2---]
D-]-----------------]-----------------]

Repeat twice for the intro, 4 times for the verse

Chorus:

Em(9)
d-]-----------------]-----------------]---
A-]-----------------]-----------------]---
F#]---0-----1-------]---0-----1-------]---
D-]-----2-----2---2-]-----2-----2---2-]---
A-]-----------------]-----------------]---
D-]-2-----2-----2---]-2-----2-----2---]-0-(hold open D)

Such a cool song. This was the first Tom Mcrae I ever heard - still a favourite! Anyone
else at the Gig at Islington on Nov 23rd? It was awesome. Can't wait till the next time


I'm gonna have ago at the solo in a bit - watch this space...

Hey, nice job!

The picking pattern is spot-on, and way better than the other sites I've found.

If you listen to the bass line in the "Oh, You will never know" portion, it moves down to A on "oh," and to G on "know" while the upper picking pattern continues.

There are a couple ways to "hear" it, but the proper chords are D(9)/A (in the bass) and then GMaj7.

(You could also say it's A(sus)(6)... but that's not as clean for naming.)

You could substite a simple A and G chord if you wanted to.

If anyone still interested in Tom McRae, it seems (from live videos) that the tuning is a Drop D (DADGBE) (played live with a capo on the 5th fret).

Here is the main pattern :

e||-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
B||-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------||
G||---------0-------|---------0-------|---------0-------|---------0-------||
D||-----0-----0-----|-----0-----0-----|-----0-----0-----|-----0-----0-----||
A||---9-----------9-|---9-----------9-|---9-----------9-|---9-----------9-||
D||-0-----0-----0---|-0-----0-----0---|-9-----9-----9---|-9-----9-----9---||


What do you think ?
