A

From: "Steve McQueen" I find it hard to play this alone on one guitar and still preserve the textures of the original. It probably wasn’t meant to be played like that, either. It’s still very beautiful and what is here might give you some idea to work out your own version. And if you by any chance find a name (and a possible root) for the last triad in the intro and the chorus, please let me know!
