As Tears go By

  		I added this transcription, because in this archive I did not find 
a finger style to play the song. I think it's absolutely 
scandalous ;-) to play the song without picking the notes. 
I play this song without any septime chord. It sounds great too. 
Each time I play the song, it sounds a little bit different, because 
I finger with the chords around. It means, that I play all the notes that 
available for the current chord. Sometimes I added a g-note on the e-string 
to the D-chord Dsus4}, sometimes I played the e-note on the E-string instead of the 
e-note on the D-string. Things I ever do is the bridge {Em}-{Em7}-{C} and the 
finger style at the D-chord. This sounds great and if you heard it you won't miss it. 
The finger style at the D-chord supports also the melody. 
The chords in brackets are "only" interim chords, but it gives the song its own character. 
 
Try to find your own style - it is allways the 
better way to play a song in your own style than to make just a (bad) copy of it. 
 
The chords are very simple: G  A  C  D 
 
Here is the stuff: 
The intro is the same as the verse. Play it two times! 
 
Repeat the following part two times (of course with the correct lyrics ;-))
