Patience of Angels (Boo Hewerdine)
----------------------------------

Written & performed by Boo Hewerdine, but I don't know of a recording of it by
him.  Eddi Reader has recorded it, it's on her first album (called Eddi
Reader!)

Strumming is:

     |x-----------------x-x------x--------x--------x--------|      = 1 bar
beats 1        2        3        4        5        6

6 beats per bar, one chord per bar. Play the 6th beat as the top 4 strings
open (DGBe =  Gadd6) in every bar. (This sounds right and it gives you ages to
make the chord change!)

Suggest picking out the lines marked < x > by singing them an octave higher
than the rest.

Chords are standard (open) fingerings.

This A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramD MajorD A chord diagramC majorC A chord diagramD MajorD stuff is a bit of an oversimplification. Live, there seems to be
some melody going on on the top two strings, but I haven't worked out what
he's doing. Still, this should be enough to carry the tune in the
Underground/Subway!

Boo plays this live in A chord diagramDbDb (capo at 6th fret), Eddi Reader's album version is
in A chord diagramBb majorBb (capo 3), I can't get above A chord diagramBB (Capo 4) if I'm going to hit the next
octave in the vocal- just play it in as high a key as you can.

Also, if it's quiet you can try an arpeggio intro:
