NOTES:
1.  A chord diagramA majorA small tribute to Jack Bruce on the first anniversary of his passing
on October 25, 2014, Suffolk, UK to that big recording studio in the sky.
2.  As this is in  Open A chord diagramD MajorD , my advice is to experiment as much as possible
with the variants of the chords to create interesting harmonies.
3.  This my interpretation of the original studio accompaniment and I trust that it does
the acoustic chords, justice.  It quite different to the standard tuning of Cream s
Albert Hall performance in 2005.  https://www.youtube.com/watch v=fBXB-gPSYUg
