Words and music by John Power
 
 ----------------------------------------------------------------

(Laboriously typed up by Mardi Gras(TNT))
(Transcribed by TNT SHWE)
I have included two versions of this song. BOTH require tuning down half a step to match the key of the
version. They do not differ in music, since the song is easy to play, but they do differ in notation.
1 is the professional reading version. Version 2 is the more user friendly, "forget that you have tuned your guitar" version!
 
 -------------VERSION 1 (THE PROFESSIONAL READERS VERSION!)-----------------

Notes: The first note, and probably the most important is that to play this song, first you must tune
guitar down by a half step to Eb Bb Gb Db Ab Eb. I have transcribed it in the correct key as on the album
single versions, which means that if you have the single with the acoustic version on it, you can play it also since the acoustic mix has the similar, if not, same music as the album version.
For the album version, use two guitars; one (the lead) with distortion, one (the rhythm) with
Listen to the track and listen out for where the distortion comes in! Otherwise, play the acoustic mix
a lone guitar and soloing using vocal humming!
The F chord (really the Fb chord when tuned half a step down), is a transition chord and should
be played for as long as the other chords.
Make sure you include a lot of muting with the "fret" hand between chord changes.
There is not much left for me to say, only that this song never fails to brighten up my gloomy
Now go get the track and play along!! :)
IMPORTANT:
In this transcription, I have written all the chords you exactly need to play... Play them in
correct position and don't forget that you are now tuned down half a step!

 --------------VERSION 2 (THE MORE READER FRIENDLY VERSION!)----------------

Notes: See the notes in the previous version also!
In this version you MUST tune your guitar down half a step to Eb Bb Gb Db Ab Eb... There is no way of
this if you want the song to sound the same as on the album!! This time play the chords shown, but as if
guitar were standardly tuned to E B G D A E... For example, if you see an E in the transcription, what you are really playing is Eb (since you are tuned down), but play it in the "E" position, O22100

Song: Guiding Star
Group: Cast
Written by: John Power
Transcribed by: Madeley (rewire@globalnet.co.uk)
Chords used:
Tune all strings down a half-step to Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb
E 022100
[F] [133211]  
[F#]B [244322]X24442 or 799877
C# X43121 or 9 11 11 10 9 9
I'd recommend using the bar chords, as you just have to
stick with the one chord shape and slide it down the neck
There's a key change in the solo, and in the bit where the
"forgotten dream" is repeated. I've kept the same chords
as elsewhere, but if anyone knows what the missing chords
are, mail me.
Riff (in the chorus)
Top string:
 
 e---9^11^9--7--9--11--7

*Intro*
E F# B F# F (x2)
*Chorus*
[E]Get u[F#]p, get up, [B]get up, [F#]get u[F]p
Get up, get up, get up, get up
*Verse 1*
Here comes my guiding star
To take me home
We travel lands afar
We blindly roam
*Bridge*
[E]We [B]spread our [F#]wings
We search our truths
And all it brings
[C#]We got a glimpse of a forgotten dream
And we [E]want it to pass to [F#]you[F#] [F]
*Chorus*
*Verse 2*
Two thousand years apart
We still remain
To carve into my heart
Her sacred name
*Bridge*
*Chorus*
*Solo*
[C#]Got a glimpse of a forgotten dream (x3)
And we [E]want it to pass to [F#]you[F#] [F]
*Verse 1*

Repeat chorus and fade out
