Restless (bridge) - Gordon Lightfoot

From the song "Restless", on the Warner/Reprise CD "Waiting For You"

(c) 1992, Moose Music

A few notes about this transcription...

First, Gord uses a capo on the 2nd fret. To play along with the CD, you'll have to, also.

Second, some of these bridge chords have weird names and I didn't name them all because I just didn't feel like taking the time to work them out which is probably just as well since the resulting names would likely be too scary! :-)

Nonetheless, they are actually very easy to play because most of the changes involve lifting one finger while maintaining the chord shape.

Third, make sure you view/print this with a monospaced font like Courier so everything lines up properly.

Finally, tab doesn't really allow for rhythmic indications, and it's even tougher typing it on a computer. I refer you to the recording for the rhythm of the bridge.

OR, if you have sound capabilities (i.e., a PC with a SoundBlaster card or a Mac) you can listen to me playing the bridge.

The sound file is Windows .WAV format, and you'll need to have a utility that plays sounds, or a helper app (like SoundApp for Mac) and your web browser configured properly -- Netscape 2.0 and up for Windows can play .WAV files by itself.

The file is about 480K, so downloading on a 14.4 modem will take about 5 minutes.
