Eric Clapton
Tears In Heaven (Guitar Chord)

#
From: dotson@yerkes.uchicago.edu (Jessie Dotson)

I fingerpick it [2 beats per pattern]. There are a couple of places where a
chord only gets 1 beat - I usually just squeeze the chord [pluck the 4
strings I would've picked simultaneously].

Verse:
| A E/G# |F#m A| D A | E |
Would you know my name if I saw you in Heaven


| A E/G# |F#m A| D A | E |
Would it be the same if I saw you in Heaven

Chorus:
| F#m | C#/E# | Em | F# |
I must be strong and carry on

| Bm |E7sus E7 | A E/G# |
Cause I know I don't belong here in heaven

| F#m A | D E7sus E7| A |



Bridge:
| C G/B | Am D | G D | Em D G |
Time can bring you down Time can bend your knees

| C G/B | Am D | G D | E |
Time can break your heart Have you beggin please beggin please


There's more lyrics - but this'll give you the basic chord structure.
The |'s are my attempt at giving a mild sense of rhythym - there's
4 beats between |'s. G/B means a G chord with a B in the bass.
I finger both the E/G# and the C#/E# chords in a open D chord shape
with the thumb wrapped around to the 6th string. Like this:

C#/E# The E/G# is the same thing played at the
--X-X------ 4th fret
T | | 1 | 2
-----------
| | | | 3 |

Eric's version is of course full of little runs and such! I hope this
helps get you started!!!!!
