Paul Simon
Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes (1986)
(Paul Simon, Intro: Paul Simon/Joseph Shabalala)
From: "Graceland"
The a capella intro is in E, the song in F. I suggest using a
capo 3rd fret and play D (C# for the intro). That way it is
easy to play the licks between the vocal lines.
 
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the main turnaround. Incorporate the voicings into your individual
strumming pattern.
