When it always feels like autumn
The wind moves slowly to the north
And the flowers die
Rain falls in my dreams

If I remember correctly there's a good tab of it on UG.


Preserving link fail

For future reference, it's not "" you say "url" instead of "link".

Trace Bundy's Bristlecone
Those who have crossed
With direct eyes, to death's other Kingdom
Remember us - if at all - not as lost
Violent souls, but only
As the hollow men
The stuffed men.

just to throw another question to the mix... are there any modern bands that just sing stuff like 'The end of Blindfolds Aside by Protest the Hero.' becasue Isearcxhed it, loved it, went to find some more and got a load of metal for my trouble.

Not bad - just not was I was hoping after the beautifull track.

Time on earth is like butterscotch; you really want more, even though it will probably just make you ill.

Nice catch. I erased that about 2 seconds after posting it.

And I know how to do it, I just haven't done it in ages.

Do you folks like folk?

Plus in open tunings you cant REALLY go too far wrong. Every open string drones really well, and you can come up with some weird sounding chords. What You Want by John Butler is a pretty awesome acoustic song, too.

I did, till I got a 12 string and severely weakened my capo. It couldnt barre a ukelele now. Then I found out about 12 string capos and ordered a G7th a few weeks ago. Its really convenient coz a 2nd fret capoed open G is open A, and so on. I miss my capo =[
...In my opinion.

Bright Eyes, Oasis, The Shins, and Say Anything are some of my favorites to play on acoustic along with some others already mentioned.
