BLOSSOM
     

standard tuning, capo 3. (it sounds from nick's voice
that the tape was slowed down, so it may have been higher
originally)


intro and verse part

(* in the intro you can hear the 2 hear clashing with the 6,
although it's quiet. in the rest of the song it's barely audible
though. my guess is it's there but either v quiet or damped by
the little finger fretting the 6. if the discord sounds too loud,
you can damp it deliberately, or maybe play 0x643 instead, even
though i don't hear that 4 note anywhere.)

"clouds left the sky..."

(nb the "clouds left the sky" sections are sometimes played with
the same picking rhythm as this last "they made way" bit.)

"children were laughing..."
