                                   By Jeff Beck

    When I first listened to it, I thought someday I should have provided an
     exact transcription of this beautiful tune. Last night I grabbed my old
      classical guitar and this is what came out of it. This is NOT an exact
     transcription at all. I'm quite sure about the melody and the bass line
    - not so about all those notes played on the mid strings; anyhow I think
       it's not important... it's a matter of personal fingerpicking style.

                            The rhythm pattern is 3/4.
    You might like to play some parts of the song using "hemiolia", which is
     a way of playing groups of six notes without stressing the accents, so
        that the listener gets a bewildering feeling: he won't be able to
     decide whether the music is played in couplets or triplets. This works
            good in the intro and somewhere in the middle (Am chords).
          Check out the intro of David Sylvian's "Forbidden Colours" to
        understand this, and try achieving it with this song if you like.

                                    Cheers,
                                    Stefano
