These chords have generic names which will be ok for my purposes.
Play twice. Let all Strings ring.
Play 4 times while muting the 1st and 2nd strings.

There are more parts to the violin harmony that i haven't figured out. Sounds
good anyway.This is MY attempt at this song. It sounds pretty good to me and
pretty close to the album too. Enjoy!
I hope this doesn't get garbled on your computer. i wrote this with my page
filling the screen.It might get goofed if your screen is a small window.

Please note: I transcribed the previous Flood from memory without following
the music. When I did, i found that it was in the wrong key. But here's the
thing ::: I did some looking and found that JOC uses an open E tuning on most
of thier songs FLOOD uses this tuning (low to high)=E-B-E-G#-B-E. And they
use a Nashville tuning on this particular song. This is when the 4 bass
strings (EADG) are replaced with thinner strings one octave higher. You can
find those in any 12 string guitar string package. I know it's a big change
from standard tuning. I have not taken the time yet to actually do it BUT I
might one day. The chords that are used in the other Flood trancsriptions are
correct, it's just a mattter of finding the right fingerings and voicings for
open E tuning. I;ve been fiddling with these trying to find which ones will
work. IT will tke time i guess. ANYway, the string solo is in the wrong key
too, Here it is in the right key Cminor (standard tuning)

Yes, the chords are weird...the song is in the key of
Eb (I think)- our band moved it up to G- to do this
add 4 to each fret number and change the chords like
so:
Original- Eb  Ab  Ab7  Bb  Cm  Gm  Fm  Cm7
In G-     G   C   C7   D   Em  Bm  Am  Em7
I hope you find this useful (and correct)- e-mail me
at jmshaner@juno.com with comments, complaints,
questions, etc.
