Sparks

By The Who

>From Tommy, 1969

This version from Woodstock (Kids Are Alright sdtrk)

Written by Pete Townshend

 

 

Original transcription by: Mike (sef@icbr.ufl.edu)

[note from Mike (sef@icbr.ufl.edu):]

Unfortunately, the guitars on the record are tuned down to

C[C#], or something like that. This is the way I've heard

Pete play it live (in key of E), but the same solo as on the

record. [use the woodstock version from kids are alright, or

the 30 years box set]

 

[from end of Amazing Journey:]
