                             "Fool For You"
                           (Curtis Mayfield)

Note from AWR: Curtis Mayfield played guitar in an open F# tuning (low to
(high: F#-A#-C#-F#-A#-F# - basically the open-position G chord, down A
semitone) but this is one of the few Impressions songs actually in F#
(cf. "Meeting Over Yonder"); they usually favored the related keys of
C# or B.  Oh, yes, the time signature is 9/8.
