To Seek Another Land

Free download on SoundCloud.

I’m obsessed with the poems of Pablo Neruda, specifically his Love Sonnets. I often look to his work to draw musical inspiration. This song is inspired from his poem, If You Forget Me:

“If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.”

My hope is to release another album/EP of my most recent work very soon.

I recommend this song for intermediate guitar players and up. The guitar tab is beautifully written across three pages. You’ll play the first section (within the repeat brackets) two times.

Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:
