hey, there have been a few requests on that song, i just heared it life from jake himself and i love it. does someone have something? you're my big hope dom ;)
 
Is the live version different from the original movie soundtrack?

no not really. that's exactly the concert i've been to :D
I think it won't be hard to pick out the melodyline, but it seems he only performs it when beeing with musicians for the background-part.
to combine these will be the tricky part i guess.

I took a quick listen to the very beginning of the studio recording and these chords seem to work.

Intro (when band comes in) =Dsus4=2230 to D=2220

Chords under main melody
D=2220, F#m=2120, Bm=4222, F#m=2120, Bm=4222, F#m=2120
Ending 1 = G6=0202, Dsus2=2200, A=2100
Repeat then play
Ending 2 = G6=0202 to D = 2220

Try that and see how it works under Jake's melody.

Hey Dom! Finally recovered from all the travel, etc. Great to see you my braddah! Talk soon.

Glad to hear you have recovered finally. In some ways I think I'm still recovering :p. Got my performance footage in the mail the other day. Fred is ripping it down for me because I can't caputure directly from dvd. Not the best but memories were made :D. I will catch up with you offline.

Whoa. Didn't even notice that, Dom. That's weird.
 
I didn't see where it says you need to capo anything Dom?
On the jpeg version you just play it as is I think it sounds right,
the key I mean.

I found it by Googling it while my browser is set with Japanese as the first language and English as second. That way I get the best of both worlds.;)
 
In the Powertab file right after the intro when the chords come in it says (capo 2) and starts with a C instead of D.

Thanks Dom it was weird I saw it on the jpg. but not on my ptb. file. Maybe it's just because I am using a mac?
