"Building Chord diagramA augmentedA Mystery"
Artist: Sarah McLachlan
Album: Surfacing

Oh Sarah! What woman, musician and artist. Well, this is my
attempt at "Building a Mystery." (no pun intended) I know it's
much more complex than my rendition. Nevertheless, it sounds
pretty good. I'm not entirely sure about the A-Amsus2 bridge
transition, if you can do better let me know. Send comments
and/or suggestions to Robert, [email protected]. Enjoy!
