"Pursuit of Happiness"

Written and Recorded by Nuno Bettencourt
From the Album "Schizophonic"
Transcribed by Iain Sword


All guitars tuned down one full step to:
	6	5	4	3	2	1
     D	g	c	f	a	d


The timing is not quite right so listen to the song
to get an idea of exactly how the finger picking should
be played.

The strumming here is not quite right on the G chord but listen to the
recording and you'll soon get it right.

Back to repeat first half of intro,

Then repeat verse,

||---------------||	This repeats the whole way through 
||---------------||	the solo which unfortunately I can't
||*-------------*|| play yet.
||*----5-5-5-3-3*||	
||-3/5-5-5-5-3-3-||     
||-1/3-3-3-3-1-1-||

Finally play one last verse but finish on:

|-3-3-3---3--|---3--------|-----3---3-3|----3--3~~~-|

Well there it is, it's a little rough in places but you should be able to
work out the whole song from here. Hope you enjoy, it really is a great
song. If you have any comments or queries please mail me at: 
 I would also be very grateful if someone
would either post on the OLGA or mail me the solo. 

Have Fun !!!

	Iain Sword.	22nd April `98.
