With my own two hands.
This is the first single off the new album. Given the state of world affairs, it seems as if this song couldnt have come at a better time. At the same time, Ben Harper serves notice that this album will be different. In the true spirit of a Marley, Ben brings us a reggae sound that is qualitatively as strong as almost any other artist since Marley. Sure, its not Marley, and no one can truly capture what he did in that time, but surprisingly, Ben Harper captures much of the vibe, and all of the emotion. The first lesson is learned: Ben Harper can do reggae, and do it well.
The video was shot by roger steffens at his house in la. he is the holder of the reggae archives and ben was filmed in his backyard and in the archives record room i believe.
Concerning the tab : there are three guitars : 2 rythmic guitars with a clean sound, quite fine that is with low bass and trebble not too high (add a wah-wah pedal). The trird guitar is the lead guitar with a warmer sound and more saturation (ideally use a stratocaster), the best is to use the central pickup or the sleeve one.

Oh- I can change the
world, with my own two hands
Oh- I can make peace
on earth, Oh- with my own two hands
I'm gonna make it
a brighter place, Oh- with my own two hands
