                Title         You Held The World in your arms
Artist        Idlewild
Album       The Remote Part
Guitarists  Rod Pryce-Jones,  Allan Stewart

When I see Idlewild play this song live,  Rod Jones plays the melody over Allan Stewart playing the 
chords.  Allan Stewart  uses C# minor position at the 4th fret,  E position at the 7th fret,   B   and A.  
These chords are below.  For strumming patterns,  you really need to listen to the CD.  I am also 
working on an acoustic version of this song but don’t hold your breath... It’s not easy.


C# min                E     B     A

After this play the chorus until fade.  Bend the last note and try to get some feedback if you really 
want it to sound like the real thing.  If you’re not that bothered,  then,  it doesn’t matter.  The song 
sounds good played with the neck pickup and light distortion.   This an amazing song by an amazing 
band,  who don’t get the recognition they deserve.
