Roots of Oak – Donovan
Absolutely amazing piece of folk rock (Celtic rock to be precise). The tricky bit here is the intro. It seems to be played by two guitars (and possibly two guitarists too, but I’m not sure about that), each capoed at different frets. Enough talk, go through the tabs!
Intro (using flageolet harmonics): 1) play EADGB strings on 13th fret with the capo on the 1st fret 2) play EADGB strings on 15th fret with the capo on the 3rd fret 3) repeat Chords (without a capo) Cm Gm7 Shadow of cloud falls and with it a chill Ab Gm High o'er heather, hawk hover the hill Cm Gm7 Just begun is my journey and Danu's my name Ab Gm I am the juggler of fortune and fame Cm \ Let me not hear facts, figures and logic | Gm | x 4 Fain would I hear lore, legends and magic / Feathers of raven, slithers of coal Armour of silver in the mackerel shoal Sun in the west it is ruby blood red Travelers a-weary do make their bed Let me not hear facts, figures and logic \ x 4 Fain would I hear lore, legends and magic / Transcribed by Dawidsu (Dave)
