Courthouse  Chris Isaak

Courthouse (From the album "Always Got Tonight")
 
 --------------------------------------

Tuning: Standard 440 Concert Pitch
Comments: This song kind of became a staple for a backing track during the height of
the "Chris Isaak" show and for good reason. Not only is it an awesome track and perfect
for setting those sad longing tones that play out as the backdrop for Chris' life, but it
also rings similiar to "Go Walking Down There" which was a relative hit for Isaak from
"Forever Blue".
Most of this song is basic chord changes added in with a few frills so it makes it a
fantastic acoustic piece.
