NOTES
^^^^^
I hope this is okay to read. If you have any difficulties then do email
me. The structure of the piece is the main thing I'm worried that people
won't understand, so for those of you baffled it goes like this...

END CHORDS
Really let the last few notes ring out. It gives the piece that solemn
feel to it.
Also, carry the last E minor chord of the break into the few words of
the third verse.
Please let me know what you think of this either on email or on
alt.guitar.tab. I think it sounds really nice if played right, and it
doesn't matter whether you sing along to it or just play it on its own.
Either way it sounds quite `awesome'(as the kids at Camp last year used
to say!)
Have fun!

This is the version from the "Live at Wembley '86" album.
It is in a different key from that on "A Kind of Magic", which is in Em.
This is in Dm and has, I think, a nicer atmosphere than the first.
You can play the single version by sliding the whole lot up 2 frets.
Key.
b - bend up one semitone.
r - release bend.
/x slide up to fret x.
x/ slide down to fret x.
h hammer on.
p pull off.
