Lyrics:

A rose will start to fade
Without rain and some warm sunshine
Itíll die every time
Fence - youíre always on the fence
Youíre one foot in and youíre back out again
I think itís time I let you know
Babe, Iím letting go
You donít have the right to choose
About me and you

What goodís a heart thatís
Too damn tough to break, thatís
Too damn cool to take a chance on love
Yeah I took a chance on us
Now that I look
Like Iím just a fool I
Think you oughta know
Youíre just a pretty faced fool who let one get away
You let get away

Go dance in those city lights
ĎTil your blind then maybe youíll see
It was me, it was me
And Iím gonna learn to rise again
Like a thunderbolt, Iíll strike again
I ainít gonna let you burn me out
So címon tell me now

What goodís a heart thatís
Too damn tough to break, thatís
Too damn cool to take a chance on love
Yeah I took a chance on us
Now that I look
Like Iím just a fool, I
Think you oughta know
Youíre just a pretty faced fool who let one get away

What goodís a heart thatís
Too damn tough to break, thatís
Too damn cool to take a chance on love
Yeah I took a chance on us
Now that I feel
Like Iím just a fool, I
Think you oughta know
Youíre just a pretty faced fool who let me get away
You let me get away
You let me get away

Pretty Faced Fool,Ē by Kip Moore, Brett James and Dan Couch.
ďMy friend Kip Moore wrote this and heís a really dear friend and a really great talent. Heís been with me through a lot of what Iíve been going through. He played me this song and I really loved it.  As much as Iím a really big fan of songwriters, I donít find many songs that I feel sound like me, but this song really resonated.Ē

I'll definitely listen to the pre-released tracks - it's the snippits I didn't want anything to do with. 

If Jewel put out albums like Dark Side of the Moon, I'd be waiting right with you, though!

For a long time, Jewel used to struggle with it, too, and she had two cheaters...

Either she didn't play the bottom strings at all, and went like this:

e - 1
B - 1
G - 2
D - 3
A - X
E - X

Or, in many songs, she'd go for opening that top e, which is actually like an Fmaj7 or something like that, but it still sounds nice.

e - 0
B - 1
G - 2
D - 3
A - X
E - X

Yes, Jewel and I had a sit down in my living room ( :no:) and discussed how I need to learn how to really play before I play any of her stuff.  Although, I have employed her finger picking style to better find the strings, so I don't have to look.  It's actually pretty cool to listen to her and watch how she plays.    I always did, but not to this degree.  And I have found that I find pieces of her songs as I just screw around.  I guess because I'm listening to a lot of her down stuff and playing minor chords.  I was cranky last night.  Stumbled upon the new tabs after I had numbed my right hand.  Strings are 11 gauge, so after 3 hours - ouch.

You're awesome.  I'm going to call this song "I Can't Play F" from now on.   :blueguitar: :rofl2:

 :that:

I have no patience to learn the F chord. There's several Jewel songs that don't have it... so I concentrate on those.  :lol:
I figure she started out writing songs when she barely knew how to play guitar.. some of her early ones are likely some of her easiest for that reason, like WWSYS, Don't, etc.

3 hours??? How do you sit for that long... my back gets sore after an hour!  :indifferent:

I have CT/RA so my hands are my biggest issue.  I break practice into 3 pieces - chord work, finger picking, and strumming.  I change position, sitting, standing, and even just laying in bed.  I'll lie down and finger pick - no looking.  It's just what works for me.  I have to be on the computer for work - all day.  It's been an awesome way to unwind.  Plus, I make up little cheats for myself since my hands are weak.  Plus, I don't watch TV.  Maybe a total of 2 hours per week.  Unless, I'm on a binge.

Wow - you are dedicated! I sit at a computer for much of my day as well.... I just find I need to be in that 'proper' position to play the guitar, since I'm still not very good I don't want to put myself at a disadvantage by not having everything 'lined up' just right.  ;)

I LOVE fingerpicking, it's my fave, and I try to do everything without looking as much as possible. I'm pretty good at finding my way around the strings without too much difficulty. You had mentioned Jewel's fingerpicking style.. is there a specific one she uses? I can't tell just by watching her what she does. Of course everything she does sounds good to me!

I don't really like strumming all that much.. maybe its because I'm just not very good at it. I need to do what you do and break it down and make sure I practice everything equally. Thanks for the tip!

I agree, it's a nice thing to do to unwind. Hmm I think I'll start a thread asking what others do, just out of curiosity.  :flower:

I'm really not dedicated...I just need to keep my mind active, lately.  I used to play drums, but after sitting all day my body was too tired.  So, I switched to guitar.  Plus, I broke my ankle a few years ago, so my bass is a little slow. :grandma:  And the parrot - LOVES guitar.  He loved drums too, though.  Kinda funny he has his own taste in music....and we don't always agree.

Like the way you observe things around you, i.e. notice your parrots reaction to your playing.  :thumbup:
