G A C. Rinse. Lather. Repeat. Listen for timing.

AlTHOUGH.... curious thing about this tune: the A maj chord is problematic. I wrote it and play it as A major, but if you really emphasize the "major-ness" of it by playing the C# of the chord too emphatically it sounds wrong. It sounds like it should be an A minor chord under there. But if you play an A minor, although it works, it isn't quite right either. It's still up for grabs what that chord actually is.

I noticed that, too. But Am sounded even wronger. I almost went with an Asus2. So maybe somewhere between an Asus2 and an A. Ha.

The YouTube video of the Triple Door show has helped out quite a bit in this case. I'll probably finish the tab sooner than later. Maybe John can help with the flourishes, but I'm pretty sure the base chords are Bmin7, D, A, E for the bridge, arguably the most difficult part of the song.

Then for the "I'm waiting for the nurse's aid to say" part, it's G, F#, A, E for the first three times, and then omit the E for the final time and play another bar of A. And I'm pretty sure that about covers the whole song, maybe. Will double check later.

Corpernicus

For the first verses, start with an octave on the D, and then do a walk down (C#, B, A), leavving your ring finger on the 7th fret of the G string. If you want to fill it out a bit, you can also play the F# on the 7th fret of the B string alongside the D on the G. Then:

Code: Select all

D            F#m
You called a cough a smile
A                D
Now I can’t tell glad from ill
D            F#m
You doubt my world is round
A                  Bm
You’re right I was Copernicus


Bm                A       E      Bm
You don't have to wait to come undone
Bm            A        E        Bm
Not about the night we hung Old Leigh


For the last time, the last Bm is a D, and that brings you back into the verse nicely.

Code: Select all

I got the Connections in Nashville 7" a while ago, and that song is dank. I'm working on it now, here's what I have:

The intro and the first 4 or whatever lines are just a G barre chord strummed, it sounds cool if you play it open when the piano chord is hit and fade back into the strumming.

C                    G
Her few words seemed to indicate
C                            G
That she had meant to stay
C                  G              <-----------------I'm not exactly sure if these change or not. Whatever.
She said "I'm ready to get on
C                         G
after all this time away"
F        C          F         C              C  G  C  G <-----------Those F's are barre chords w/o barring your finger
She told me that she can't wait up nights

(Here's where I start to lose it)
G                  C                D            C   <----Chord pattern here is weird.
But she's got connections in Nashville
G               C            D          C
That she's gonna try and make


That's what I have now.

Hey, cool you are! From the first sight it's not as difficult, suppose it worth having a try
