    Name that tune

    Need a little help...finally got my guitar build to a playable state, but that doesn't mean my mind is working right lol
    I'm a wannabe player, and I'm just beginning on trying my hand at finger-picking so please bear with the quality or lack of in the following sound clip.....I've picked up on something that sounds familiar, but I can't recall the tune...Any help would be very much appreciated as I'm trying to find the song itself and possibly some tab to go with it....I'm sure that once one of you clue me in, I'll be good and embarrassed that the title/band slipped my mind, but until then, as usual, my mind is blank ...T.I.A.

    Not bad at all.

    Was thinking 'Kansas', but I don't think that's quite right.

    Thanks guys, but no cigar...I thought of Kanas as well, even thought it might be something from Led Zepplin or Seals & Croft. Nice flashback Rob, lead me to check out another favorite of theirs... still no luck but it's fun surfing for

    This is one I've taught to a lot of people over the years. In fact, I showed it to a student last week. (Doing a little teaching on the side these days.) It's a bit simplified, but it's a good exercise for working on picking single notes while holding down chords.


    More Than a Feeling (Intro)

    .....Dsus.........D.............Cadd9....G.................

    1-||-----------3-----2--------|--------------------------||
    2-||--------3-----------3-----|--------------------------||
    3-||-----2-----------------2--|--------0-----------------||
    4-||--0-----------0-----------|-----2-----------0-----0--||
    5-||--------------------------|--3-----------2-----------||
    6-||--------------------------|-----------3--------3-----||



    Notice how the 3rd finger stays in the third fret on the second string for each of these four chords? Even though you don't necessarily pick that note on the Cadd9 and G chord, it serves as an anchor point for the other three fingers, making the chord change easier.
