"Hearts grow fonder" by Tommy Emmanuel (instrumental)
>From the Dare to be different album

Transcribed by Steve M. (maxmar@wire.net.au)

I worked out most of this song after watching tommy play it on his
"guitar talk" video and just put in the missing pieces.  I haven't
tried working out that nifty acoustic solo yet, but anyhow, enjoy.

Tuning: normal

b = bend
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
v = vibrato
h = hammer on
p = pull off
^ = palm mute

Riff 1 - electric guitar (with a little distortion)

e    --7h9-9p7-5-------------------------|---------------------|
B    ------------5v--------5-5h7---------|----------5----------|
G    ---------------/6-7-7-------7-6-4v--|--4-6-6/7---7-7p6p4--|
D    ------------------------------------|---------------------|
A    ------------------------------------|---------------------|
E    ------------------------------------|---------------------|

e    ----------------------7v--|--7h9-9p7-5-------------------------|
B    --------/7v--/9v--10v-----|------------5v--------5-5h7---------|
G    --4-6-7-------------------|---------------/6-7-7-------7-6-4v--|
D    --------------------------|------------------------------------|
A    --------------------------|------------------------------------|
E    --------------------------|------------------------------------|

This last bar is played at a fairly rapid pace.

e    --------------------------7/9\7---7\5-5v--|
B    ----------------5-------5-----------------|
G    --4-6-6/7-6-6/7---4/6-7---------8-(\6)----|
D    ------------------------------------------|
A    ------------------------------------------|
E    ------------------------------------------|

Now play riff 1 again, but replace the last bar (above) with this:

e    --------------------------7/9\7-5v--|
B    ----------------5-------5-----------|
G    --4-6-6/7-6-6/7---4/6-7-------------|
D    ------------------------------------|
A    ------------------------------------|
E    ------------------------------------|

Here's the next part which is played at around 1:00 into the track.

e    ---------------------------------|-----10-9/-------12-10/--|
B    --12p10--------------------------|-----------14-15---------|
G    --------9v--/9-7\5-5-7-/9-7-7h9--|--/9---------------------|
D    ---------------------------------|-------------------------|
A    ---------------------------------|-------------------------|
E    ---------------------------------|-------------------------|
                        ^ ^

e    -------------------------------------|--------------9-10-9-12--|
B    --10-12--15-14-15-14------------10\--|--10b--10p8p7------------|
G    ---------------------14-14\9-/9------|-------------------------|
D    -------------------------------------|-------------------------|
A    -------------------------------------|-------------------------|
E    -------------------------------------|-------------------------|
        ^  ^

e    --10/12--12\10--10\8--8-8-7-7-7-8-8/10--12-12-12-12-12-12-12--|
B    --------------------------------------------------------------|
G    ---7/9----9\7----7\5--5-5-4-4-4-5-5/7----9--9--9--9--9--9--9--|
D    --------------------------------------------------------------|

D    ---------------------------------------------------------------|
A    ---------------------------------------------------------------|
E    ---------------------------------------------------------------|

e    --16-16-17-17-17-17-17-17-19-19-19-19-19-19--|
B    ---------------------------------------------|
G    --13-13-14-14-14-14-14-14-16-16-16-16-16-16--|
D    ---------------------------------------------|
A    ---------------------------------------------|
E    ---------------------------------------------|

Well that's it for now, the rest of the song (apart from the acoustic
is just variations on riff 1, with a few extra bits here and there.
