Subject: Wiser Time by The Black Crowes

Artist: The Black Crowes
Album: _Amorica_

Well, here's my shot at this great tune. I play it tuned down
1/2 step (mostly because that's how my guitar's usually tuned),
but since it's all barres, you could play it in regular tuning.
(It would be easier in open E tuning, and I'd be willing to bet
that the Crowes play it that way to get the slides down right)
======================================================================
Progression #1: B - A# - G#
 
 Progression #2: G# - A# - A#, A# - C - C, D# - C - C# - A# - C - G#

[-] [G#]  
NOTE: Don't play the A# and B chords as E-barres - they
don't
==== sound right. Play all of these as A-barres, except the
G#.

so good luck on those!
