Angels
 ------
>From Yes I Am.

Tune up half-a-half-step to play with the CD. (I'm told that its quite
common studio practice just to 'speed up' the final mix of a track either
to balance out the length of each side of an album or to brighten the
track up a bit. Doesn't stop it being a pain in the machine heads tho').

On the keyboard sections (everything except the second verse)- the
UPPERCASE letters are full chords and lowercase are individual notes.
This arrangement doesn't translate very well onto guitar. Suggest
improvising around this basic pattern for verses 1/3 :

    //   D(sus9)                   A chord diagramA augmentedA                         \\

This song's quite tricky to play/sing- there are two key changes in the

bridge  * (from A chord diagramA augmentedA to A chord diagramE MajorE) and %(A chord diagramE MajorE back down to A chord diagramA augmentedA).

I keep having trouble with the end of the third line in the verse ($). I
think on keyboard its  " c#   A chord diagramD MajorD ", but on guitar, "   A chord diagramA augmentedA " sounds better,
though every so often it sounds like a Bm. Whaddayathink?


I think there's still plenty of room for improvement here, so feel free
