Opening to "Lead of Love"
Written by Aaron Tate
Arranged by Caedmon's Call
Transcribed by Alex. =)

Here's the opening of "Lead of Love." Just capo on 2, it's all on
the highest three strings (G, B, E). The highest two strings (B, E)
are always open (no fingers, just play the capoed note), so
basically you just move up and down the G string. Just make sure
your finger doesn't hit the open strings, to keep them ringing.

Since the highest two strings are always open, I numbered them as 0,
(even though they're technically 2nd fret because of the capo), but
for the G string I've named the fret by the ACTUAL number, so it's
easier to figure out where you are that way.

And as in all tab, make sure you're reading this in a font that
gives equal spaces for each character (ex. courier), or else the
lines won't line up.


* = these three notes are rhythmically faster, cross
the strings quick.
11/13 = slide from 11 to 13


[intro]  E, A9, E, A9


Normally Alex's version of the intro is better, but on a 12-string
use this version on just the bottom two "courses" (pairs of strings), b
and e. I run through the intro lick--Alex's unless I'm on a
12-string--once, and then I start strumming the full chords.

Once you go to strumming full chords, the easiest way is to use
the basic E and A9 fingerings. This way your hand is always in the
same position at the second fret. You can also add the hammer to the E
and the optional notes to the A9 with your pinky finger. This puts
part of the intro lick within the chords and spices things up a bit.
But here's an even better way that's not much more difficult:


     [E]    [Emaj7]          [Esus6]        [E]         [A9] [Asus6] [A9] [A9] 
These chords also contain the intro lick and sound much better
than just the basic E and A9. I use these in the intro, after the
first chorus, and in the outro, though I use the basic E and A9 for
about half of the outro to keep these from getting monotonous. Note
that you can play all this keeping your ring finger on the 4th string.
