Subject: RE: Chord Req: Flanders and Swann - Slow Train
Thanks for the help so far people.
This is one of those songs that I've put off learning for too long but I've been asked to do an evening of railway songs in Shrewsbury in June and it's a "must do" song!

Without getting into the "what is a folk song" debate, musically, this song is way above the three chord trick of most songs and doesn't sound right without those finger twisting, mind bending, brain numbing chord runs that put people off jazz guitar for life!

I shall have a go at what's been put on here so far - it's probably very close to what I do already but the addition of those sus4, maj7, 7b5 etc makes all the difference.

Cheers
Mark
