I can get 2/3's of the way through the song, but my hand and wrist begin to cry their eyes out. I need the stamina to get through it.

Transpose it up 1/2 step like hunter plays it. Much easier than barre chords :)

SO it would go

Cherise was brushing her long hair gently down

It was the afternoon of carnival as she brushes it gently down

Rubin was strumming his painted mandolin

It was inlaid with a pretty face in jade

Played in the carnival parade

for me, it's when "the breeze would pause to listen in"...



Ive found that a few faux "built to last" riffs of:

Cm-B-Fm, B-Fm-E, Cm-B-Fm-B-Fm-E

make a nice suprise kinda intro for Reuben & Cherise

I think I actually like the way 1/2 up version sounds better

Man I just saw Yonder last Thur. and they played the best version I herd of this song.

It was amazing, I never thought I would see them play this song and they did, and it was sweet.
