2000 Miles (2)
from Learning To Crawl
Transcription:
Len Moskowitz

(This whole song should be played on a Rickenbacker 12-string or per "The Isle of View" on an acoustic 12-string! -- LM)

The intro lick, that also continues through most of the song,
goes like this:

e|---------2-3-|-0-------2-3-|
b|-3-----------|---3---------|
G|---0---------|-----2-------|
D|-----0-------|-------------|
A|-------------|-------------|
E|-------------|-------------|

Try this instead -- let the bass notes ring. Note that the timing is
triplets:

t t t t t t t t t t t t
e|--------2-3-0-------2-3-|
4 b|3-------------3---------|
- G|--0-------------0-------|
4 D|----0-------------------|
A|------------3-----0-----|
E|3-----3-----------------|

Then right before the first verse:

e|-------------|
b|-3p1-0-------|
G|-------2-0---|
D|-----------4-|
A|-------------|
E|-------------|

I miss you

VERSE 2
In these frozen silent nights
Sometimes in a dream
You appear

Outside under the purple sky
Diamonds in the snow
Sparkle

Our hearts were singing
It felt like Christmas time
