the barricades of heaven Jackson Browne
Date: Fri, 04 Apr 1997 13:36:30 -0700 (MST) From: Justin John Simison To: email@example.com Cc: firstname.lastname@example.org This is one of Jackson Browne's all time best songs. The chords I've transcribed have a variation on the C and the D, because I think that kind of helps a single guitar arrangement keep the drone of the full band. To play it the way Jackson does, play a regular C and a regular D. ______________________________________________________________________________ "The Barricades of Heaven" ("Looking East", Elektra) by : Jackson Browne Transciption by Justin J.
