pretty good year
by tori amos
from the album *under the pink*

transcribed by:    evan c. parker
                   ecpark@mail.wm.edu

note:  any piano music, not to mention tori music specifically, does not
translate into guitar music very well.  in fact, trying to do this with
any of tori's stuff is akin to some sort of blasphemy.  take this for what
it is worth.  all the chords are sketchy at best due to tori's often unique
chord choices...  these chords are not on absolute pitch, but the relative
pitch should be fairly good.

try picking the chords, it sounds much better than simple chords.
