I have a gig in 2 weeks and need to learn an upbeat acoutical version of Franklin's Tower. Any help would be appreciated particularly on the opening verses.

Or you can go A-A-A (open, "E" barre on 5th fr or "C" shape on 9th fr.), G ("C" shape on 7th fr), D-D-D("A" barre on 5th fr or "G" shape at 7th fr)

If your going to play it caged i recomend basic ornaments on G instead of the standard second step up. this would make it alot more intersting

ex.
A G D G A
E--9--9--9---9--9---9-7-------------------/-9--9-
B-10-10-10--10-10--10-8-7-7-7---------7h8-/10-10-
G--9--9--9---9--9---9-7-7-7-7-7h9p7---7---/-9--9-
D-11-11-11--11-11--11-9-7-7-7-------9-7h9-/11-11-
A------------------------------------------------
e------------------------------------------------

kepp the D, G, and B strings barred on the 7th fret as you do the trills and such, you can also trill the 7 and 8th frets of the B string

this will definatly spruce it up if your playing by yourself
