I really don't know why every hardrock poser has to prove that he owns an acoustic guitar too. Not always, but very often those “one-off ballads” are plainly the boring C - G - Am exercises with a lot of overblown emotion. But for Extreme and their "More than Words", it is a different thing. Beautifully played and sang, and absolutely no violin molesting. This tune also works fine "without words".
I have this distilled from an “unplugged” songbook and tried to combine chords and melody line in a way that comes close to the spirit of the song. Nuno Bettencourt plays a fantastic guitar on this one. Essential are the dead notes that provide a nice contrast to the sweetness of the harmony singing.
