[Song: Roy Harper "Forever"]
[Transcription by Gordon Walker ]

This is something I haven't posted before I think - especially for you
finger-picking tab readers. I've never seen Roy play this, and wonder
exactly what he does becuase the way I do this, the harmonics at the end
don't work out (so I've left them out of this!).
I did have a version which was almost impossible to play in G (and you
needed very long fingers for!) for which the harmonics did work bt never
found a compromise. Roy well have played this on open tuning but that
makes it (a) incredibly boring to play and (b) the harmonics still don;t
work!
