Melody - CCCC BCDBCC CCBCDB CCCC BCDBCC CCBCDB C I'm not sure about the "See the holocaust risin' over the horizon" section. I've tried playing with the follow chords to get the dramatic ascent: G G#dim Adim Bbdim G/B Also, on the 'I think the weather's changing' bit. I suggest a moving bass line. Apologies if it is out of tempo. Take a listen and you can get it more accurate. On the first line where I've put the G walking down to the D via /F /E, a climb, like G A B C C# to the Dm is also nice I play this on my fender rhodes keyboard and it sound good. I think the bass patterns are tricky on the guitar. You really need a euphonium, a french horn and other selected brass.! Albums this song can be found on: Preservation Act I
