eh, well i suppose its kind of an alternative version Laughing I listened to the song recently and its not really the same as the way i do it. I can't really explain it, but if you give me a day or two I'll record a wee bit and post it somewhere so you can see what i mean.

hey kieron, you can hear how i play travel light here

http://www.7161.com/~youngbrian

i just listened to it and realised i made a mistake, on the diane cluck verses you should do the descending bassline thing (or the jeff verses in the second half of the song.) the descending bassline thing is: A string 3rd fret, Astring 2nd fret, A string open, Estring 3rd fret. I think. I'm at uni just now making hand symbols in the air trying to remember it. let us know if you think it sounds anything like how it should!

Thanks again.

not sure if its right, but the chords i play for this are

G/Asus2/D/E7sus

these chords are easier than they sound

Asus2----------E7sus

e|0---------------0
B|0---------------0
G|2--------------2
D|2--------------0
A|0--------------2
E|*---------------0

and at the end of each verse it repeats the D rather than change to the E7sus

[intro]
G Asus D E7sus x3
G Asus D



G Asus D E7sus
for basically the entire song, except sometimes it stays on the D a little longer at the end of a verse, instead of going to the E7sus

end chords are
G Asus D E7sus
We'll travel light and that's the life for us

G Asus D E

G
We'll travel light....
A D
and thats the life for us

Wow, I'm really surprised this song seems to have taken on a life of its own - I think Diane and I only played it live about 10 times and maybe only sold about 200 copies of that CD - but I just discovered that there are a lot of covers of it on Youtube! Certainly more than anything else I've ever written, and probably more than anything else Diane has ever written - how weird!
Here's some covers of Travel Light that I just found on Youtube:

I was disappointed to see on the second video that they had credited it as a Laura Marling/Johnny Flynn cover! (I had to correct them in the comments).

Thanks for posting that!
It's funny that the little girl knows who wrote the song but the person who uploaded it doesn't!
