Landslide Chords

I know it's been a long time since I've had time to get into the recording studio*, but I have been practicing- and I feel like it's really starting to come along. Though I know, I know-- if you're really good at guitar (or have been playing longer than 6 months) you don't need to tell me this still needs work.  I understand that.  But, I'm feeling more confident and was even brave enough to try a song that is all picking (I'll have to keep practicing before I post that one here).  So, here is one of the ones I've learned how to play- Landslide.  It's a bit more like the Dixie Chicks version than Fleetwood Mac's in that I play it faster and up on capo 5.

Here's what it sounds like so far:


And if you're interested, here are the chords:

C           G/B                 Am7  G/B
I   took my love, and I took it down

C           G/B                   Am7   G/B
I climbed a mountain and I turned around

      C       G/B              Am7          G/B
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills

         C         G/B        Am7       G/B
Till the landslide brought me down

   C             G/B          Am7  G/B
Oh mirror in the sky: What is love?

        C           G/B        Am7  G/B
Can the child in my heart rise above?

      C                G/B      Am7   G/B
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?

      C          G/B     Am7   G/B
Can I handle the seasons of my life?

        C     G/B Am7
I don't know

D/F#  G         D/F#      Em7       Em7/open 4th
Well, I've been afraid of changing, Cause
  
     C        G/B         Am7 
I've built my life around you

D/F#   G              D/F#        Em7          Em7/open 4th
   But time makes you bolder even children get older

    C           G/B   Am7    G/B
And I'm getting older too

    C           G/B   Am7    G/B
Yes I'm getting older too.

     C       G/B                 Am7   G/B
So I took my love, and I took it down

  C         G/B                   Am7   G/B
I climbed a mountain and I turned around

           C      G/B               Am7 //          G/B //
And if you see my reflection in the snow // covered hills //

     C       G/B   Am7  G/B
Well maybe

     C       G/B   Am7  G/B
Well maybe

        C //           G/B //        Am7
The the landslide //   brought me//  down


*recording studio = my bathroom with the voice memo app on my iPhone. Yup, I'm high tech in these here parts.

What song is next? Did you ever listen to Sarah McClachlan?

I've been learning most recently The One I Love by David Gray and Closer to Fine by Indigo Girls (but man is that on fast!) Big fan of Sarah McClachlan- I to get me some of that to learn too.

I like it, Kate. It was a pleasure to listen to you sing with the guitar!

I used to play acoustic when I was a teenager. Now my pretty guitar just collects dust in the corner. I hope to pick it up again one day.

Keep it up. This is one of my fav songs.

Yay! You should check out the Smashing Pumpkins version from Pisces Iscariot too. Good stuff.
