This is already in the database.  So, if y'all have no problems with my decision, I will remove this thread in a couple of days.

and as a post-script - remember this is a completely (well not quite!!) computer-illiterate thicky-thicko you're talking to - how do I access the songs on the database?

If this is a stupid question please bear with me - I only ask when I can't work it out for myself!!!

Cheers mate, Vic......... :)

Did not see it already in the database.  So long as both are available under one thread, that's cool.

Yes the V A are down - up.

E doesn't = MC2, E = Fb

BTW, you gotta search the database, which is at:

http://www2.shore.net/~maryesme/bin/easy.cgi

(soon to be moving, so keep watching here for news... also, I will have that page kindly redirect over.)

hello all

I tried to play it a couple of times, no worry about chord changes but i'm not so sure about the best strummin pattern. To my ears the song has a bit of shuffle feel so I play it with a D u for each beat but i'm not utterly satisified, any suggestions?

thanks

Matteo

I love this song
I know what you mean about a shuffle sound
I tend to strum

D Dsus4 D Dsus4 etc etc etc

it tends to give it that little shuffle affect you mention

Many are called but few are chosen.

Matteo and Heyesie,

Regarding the shuffle, rather than the D Dsus4, pattern; I hold the D chord position and instead of the Dsus4 I simply place my pinky on the 3rd string of the 4 fret. With only a little practice it feels quite natural and sounds close to the original to me. :wink:

Hello all

just a bit addiction to the already excellent posti, an addiction which can be helpful

chord progression

verse goes like this: D (1/2) - A (1/4) - G (1/4) - D (repeat it four times)
chorus: G-D-A (1/2)-G(1/2)-D

strummin pattern

I find it quite easy to play with a d..U or also d...D pattern for each beat of course played with a triplets feel

Matteo

What does 1/2 and 1/4 mean
Are you saying half beats and quarter beats
