                Title : BURN ONE DOWN
Author : Ben Harper

Ben Harper plays this song one step down: (d,F,A,C,G,D)
but it works perfectly with the usual tuning except
it's a bit harder to sing...

You can play it two different ways:
1 - Mediator and playing up and down
2 - Fingerpicking using four fingers

When playing the bass line (E,A,D) you should let ring the other
chords. You can also work the song without the bass notes at first
just to get the rythm. And don't forget to sing along !

u stands for up (playing the chords up)
d stands for down

Intro:
