"Love Alive" by Heart
>From the album Little Queen
Transcribed by Jeff Vick (Vicktory@aol.com)
May 30, 2002
Part of the beauty of this song is that there are 2
distinct guitar parts which blend together seamlessly
with harmonized riffs and different voicings of the same
chord, including a lot of voicings using open strings.
The two parts are here noted separately assuming it will
be played as a duet.  If you play it solo, mix and match
your favorite bits.

On the album the 2 guitars are well separated left and
right.  It sounds like they used two acoustic guitars
(or 1 acoustic, 1 steel guitar), but an acoustic for
guitar one and an electric set clean for guitar 2 works
well also.  The electric really helps to make the harmonics
pop out.

I have not attempted to indicate the rhythm.
Symbols used include:

 h  = hammer on
 p  = pull off
<x> = natural harmonic above fret x
 /  = slide up to next note
 \  = slide down to next note
 x  = mute, do not play
