Snowfaller

(The Church)

Transcribed by Stefan Horlitz

The actual "chords" of Snowfaller only come to life through the masterful
arrangement - guitar ostinato, varying bass notes, guitar solo playing and
"chords" only here and there. It's a great example for "Sum of the parts".
First, I will provide a kind of chordal framework, so you can play it on
your acoustic.

It's absolutely vital to play that last a minor chord...it's such a nice and
yearning twist

I'm doing all kinds of double-guitar imitations when I'm playing this one,
juxtaposing the stuff on the upper strings against the bass drones, like
this for the intro:

2-3-2-3-5-3-5-3
3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3
2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2
0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0
x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x
x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x   etc.

Make sure to dissolve the descending bits into jangly notes/arpeggi (just
listen to the CD)
