Generaal - Nicholis Louw
Album: Energie



This song because of its unusual keys it is more of an intermediate-
advanced level tab. I have taken a bit of a shift in my usual style of
tabs to include a complete transcription of the lyrics so if you are
not that comfortable with playing the bar-chord accompaniment, you can
always play along directly with the singer.

If you have a CAPO, you could put it on the second fret and take each
chord down two semi-tones. This makes song before the key change
easier to play as instead of B-F#-E, you could now play A-E-D. Then
after the chord change the chords go from C#-G#-F# to B-F#-E.

For those of you who are comfortable with bar-chords, this song should
not be too challenging.  However, by the time you get to the end, your
wrists may be a little sore. Don’t worry...you can blame the guitar.

Here are the chords used in the song for quick reference:
        B       C#      E       F#     F#7      G#     G#m
e:------2-------4-------0-------2-------2-------4-------4------
B:------4-------6-------0-------2-------2-------4-------4------
G:------4-------6-------1-------3-------3-------5-------4------
D:------4-------6-------2-------4-------2-------6-------6------
A:------2-------4-------2-------4-------4-------6-------6------
E:----------------------0-------2-------2-------4-------4------

Have fun! Please let me know if there any changes/suggestions you have
to make the tab better,

======================================================================
Here is an English translation for all of those people out there like
myself, who dig the music, but are new to the language:
======================================================================

INTRO:
General, general I'll take your daughter
My horse is saddled here comes the man of steel
General

VERSE1:
She could read my mind
A story of a war
Which begins today
Never shall I forget that day
I immediately knew
We must go together
It's final, it's final

CHORUS:
General, general I'll take your daughter
My horse is saddled here comes the man of steel
General, general I'll take your daughter
I know it's radical but she's phenomenal, general

VERSE2:
She gave me a salute
I could not turn myself
My heart is hurt
Her father's gun
Is overloaded and I would
Never guessed it would happen
It's final, it's final

CHORUS:
General, general I'll take your daughter
My horse is saddled here comes the man of steel
General, general I'll take your daughter
I know it's radical but she's phenomenal, general

BRIDGE:
Bombs explode inside of me
And she had her fisier on me
I wave a white flag and give up
General I have lost my heart

CHORUS:
General, general I'll take your daughter
My horse is saddled here comes the man of steel
General, general I'll take your daughter
I know it's radical but she's phenomenal, general
