                        TAB:Rakim by Dead Can Dance

Trans/noted: Andretti Benavides
ISSUE# 4 from GTML.
A very difficul song to transcribe and play it correctly.  This is 90 % O.k.
and i think i will make it.
First: Tunning :You may say WHAT??? four strings?. Yes Four strings, this is
for mandolin (i think it is played with that) but if you have a guitar just
put a capo on 5th fret and play on the thinner strings. Notated as fret
5(capo)=0.For non capo just add 5 to every note.
Second: Trills: Move quikcly, very quickly up and down the pick under notes
that says Trill.
Third: The chords are arranged for main deep music layer, an here comes the
scales: For DM part is a A minor.-a,b,c,d,e,f,g,a. For D part is a
G major.-g,a,b,c,d,e,f#,g. Noy you can figure out arrangements and voicing.
Thats all,for corrections, comments, contributions or anything else:

Lyrics:
1. Rakim

                                  Favored son
                                  Turn in the garden
                                  Shades of one
                                  Sins forgotten

                                  Favored signs to find hope
                                  In the rounds of life
                                  Favored rhymes to find hope
                                  In the sands of life

                                  Favored son
                                  Fence in your heart
                                  Saviored son
                                  Sins forgotten
