Pathway of Teardrops


#1

Stumbled across this today. Just in case someone hasn’t seen it.
Almost makes me cry. Would love to see this song tabbed out (hint hint).

I hadn’t seen that one, thanks. Aren’t they amazing, even without Ben!
I’'m going to try to figure those chords out, fun song!

Intro seems simple enough.

Hey, thanks Impresario.
That will get me motivated to get started on it.

Nice! This is what I got with help from yours. I didn’t tab out the full solo cause’ it’s mostly the intro.
also this does not represent time whatsoever. Use you ears. Sorry for the hack job on the Tab. Everything is in 3/4 time.

The B chord after the solo she adds the G note on the D string last measure.

–7--7
–6--6
–4--5
–4--4

Great, I hope to have time this weekend to play it.

This song has been stuck in my head on and off since I heard it after it was posted here. Ben’s sisters have such great harmony vocals. Thanks for posting it.


#10

My wife, Robin, and I have been learning it since it was posted here. Your right, it is a great song! I love Penny’s and Katy’s vocals. Their friend, Bonnie, is a great addition, what a firecracker! I bet they really have fun together, I hope they post more from their Colorado visit.

That’s awesome Jim. Are you all singing harmony on it?


#12

I’m trying to, Mike. Robin is a wonderful singer and a good teacher. I have a tendency to drift from harmony to melody and she is able to compensate for that.
After years of playing in bands it’s so nice to play with someone with such strong vocals. She even makes me sound good, which is hard to do!

I have played along with this song sooo many times my wife decided to use headphones to watch TV.
She’s not really into great music anyways. :laughing:

I bet it’s really stuck in your head now. That’s the way it is with me when I’m learning a new song, it just plays over and over in my head, probably even when I’m asleep!


#15

Hi guys, i’d love to play/sing this song also, (guitar) but i’m not familiar with this key :blush: can anyone point me in the right direction.

Hi Ron,
If you look at Jim’s post (it’s about the 5th post) he gives the lyrics with a suggested chord progression above it. Thanks Jim! It’s in E.
I just played through it. I have a couple things to throw in as suggestions. Should the F# in the verse be minor? On the chorus, you have A, then A. I think the second A is minor (changing on “so” of “I love you so”). That is followed by an E. Then I am hearing something like a C#7 (on “go”). You can play a C# like a B7 slid up two frets, the open B works here too because it’s the 7. Not sure about that one, but I think it’s in the ballpark.
Jim, thanks again for posting it!
