John Hardly Ashokan Farewell: lyrics and chord structure (42) RE: Ashokan Farewell 07 Feb 09


This tune is in ¾. Each "/" is a beat (NOT including the chord named). Thus XX0232/// is three beats on a D chord. Of course, if you choose…

1. the voicings are close to giving you a head start toward a fingerstyle arrangement.

2. Of the three beats the first is often sounding the bass string only. Because of this, there are a few places where you will probably NOT play it that was (f'rinstance) in those few places where each of three chords in a row has only one beat.

Barenberg also substitutes a different A7 that is still eluding me. If you are too used to a Bm, the place to substitute it back in is at the X2023X chord.
