SWAN SWAN H


The Rhythm guitar is played on a 12 - string while the other part is
played on a regular 6 - string.

This song is in 6/8 time. In the intro, Peter plays an Am chord. On
beat four, he lifts up his finger on the second fret of the D string
then hammers it right back on. Its an old trick but one of my
favorites. He also does it on the Dm chord when it's played for a
whole 6 beats - except of course, he lifts his finger off of the G
string.
