Song for the Painter  Lost in the Trees


Song For The Painter - Lost In The Trees

Tabbed by: liggsies
Killer simple as far as I can tell, but I probably couldn't have figured it out
a year or so ago when I was firmly in "beginner with no ears stage," so I thought
I'd share.
It's in 4/4, and the chords are C, Am, F, and G.
During the verses, it's consistently one full four-beat measure of C, then one of
Am, then two beats F, two beats G, and two beats C again before starting over into the
next verse.
The picking pattern is a great one to start with for folks who're having a hard time
with finger independence, as it's only the thumb and the index+middle fingers plucking
in tandem, like so:

F G C etc.

The song starts with just the C pattern being played for quite a while, but when the
verses come in this is the approximate context:
[C]this song is for the [Am]painter
[F]who lost [G]both of her [C]hands
[C]and this song is for the [Am]wanderer who
[F]never came [G]home agai[C]n
As usual, listen to the song itself for a better sense of timing.
And, as always, all comments, questions, and criticisms are welcome and encouraged.
