Joe Richman Chord Req: The World Is Waiting for the Sunrise (29) RE: Chord Req: Waiting for the Sunrise 24 Jun 04

Greg's original chords transposed down from Bb to G worked well for me. With the addition of a Gdim chord as a lead-in, it's well near perfect to my ear. But how easy a chord is to play will differ from player to player and instrument to instrument. I'm on a 5 string banjo in G tuning. Guitar players may prefer the other version.

This thread has taken on quite a life of its own. The "Dear one...the world... is waiting for the SUN...Rise..." lyric is what I remember from that ancient 78 rpm record I have stashed away at my Mom's house. I haven't heard that thing in over 20 years, so my memory could be wrong, but I doubt it.

I have an instrumental bluegrss version on CD by Roger Sprung & Doc Watson. Way too fast for my playing ability.
