I am wanting to learn a VERY easy song called "Give me one reason". I am going to perform it a little differently than Tracey Chapman but I imagine the chords will be pretty much the same. I have found several tabs for it and most of them use some flavor of E - A - B but I am not sure on how to finger these chords (bluesier versions of these chords). The strumming sounds like D D u u d u but I am not sure.

Has anyone posted this song before? I used search and looked but couldnt find it.

Any help appreciated
Jim

Does anyone have the chords for this song

3. "Deep Purple"
Lead: Brian Wilson

When the deep purple falls
Over sleepy garden walls
And the stars begin to flicker
In the sky
Through the mist of a memory
You wander back to me
Breathing my name with a sigh
In the still of the night
Once again I hold you tight
Though you're gone
Your love lives on
When moonlight beams
And as long as my heart shall beat
Lover, we'll always meet
Here in my deep purple dream

And as long as my heart shall beat
Lover, we'll always meet
Here in my deep purple dream
Oh ho ho ho ho ho hooo

Thanks in advance,

Rod.

Be excellent to each other & party on dudes!

Got as an mp3 Rod? If so, give it a run through DMM (from here)... it's not perfect, but it's normally enough to get you started :)

Ahhh. A bit of sly Googling finds this page... http://www.theguitarguy.com/deeppurp.htm

I don't know the song so I can't tell if it's any good or not, and it certainly doesn't look like the easiest song to play, but have fun :)

Wow ! who'd have thought that such a simple sounding song would have so many chord changes in it.

Thanks Chords. You are right its not the easiest song in the world :?

I have found this little clip http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/music/clipserve/B000000D5Z001003/1/ref=mu_sam_ra001_003/203-1471506-3658345 unfortunately its by Donny and Marie but its not that far from Brian Wilson's version. It may jog a few memories.

EDIT
Ah ha thanks to your reply Chords and looking through that site I have found that quite a lot of people have covered this one and have found this video with Nino Temple and April Stevens doing the whole song.

http://www.ninoandapril.com/sixties.html

So I'm now begining to think that maybe Brian Wilson didn't write this song :?

If I remember correctly, Deep Purple was actually written as a piano instrumental (I think by Peter DeRose) (DeRosa?) in the early 1930s and the lyrics were added later. My dad used to play it a lot in the wedding bands he sat with (saxophone) and we had the sheet music for it laying around the house so I learned it at an early age.

It is full of fun chords, the way most pop songs of the thirties and forties were, and I recall my theory teacher in high school using this song as part of a demonstration on the uses of various chords.

Thanks for jogging the memories...

Peace

Yet another request from me. Does anybody know how to play the little riff or you could call it a mini solo or bridge in the middle of this song. He plays it a couple of times, then finishes with a longer version of it

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlborm2YAW0

It sounds so simple but for the life of me I cant figure it out

Its not his best performance of this song but at least you can hear this one, all the others are drowned out by screams from girl fans.

Thanks.

It is sad to have lost such an artist. If anyone can help me with an accurate finger picking tab to Before the Next Teardrop Falls" I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks,

Anthony

Keith - KBlake - I think Johnny B Goode was originally in Bb - it's a standard blues shuffle, so you'd need the I IV and V, ie Bb Eb and F.....I think I've got a decent tab for this, let me try it out and I'll get back to you.....

Rodders.....sounds like Bo's doing something like this....

The main riff's a G chord at the 3rd fret - then he's playing something like

E A..D..G..B.. E
x x 11 11 11 9

and sliding it up to the 12th fret - a kind of half barre G chord, then the same two frets lower with E and F.....

and the final part, the same shape lower down, C>D>C and back to the G riff.

:D :D :D

Great, thanks Vic, Simple aint it when you know. I just had a complete brain fade last night.
After playing with it a bit your spot on with the half barre starting on the 9th and sliding up, but I'm not sure about going down as far as the E on the 7th. Sounds ok just sliding back and forth on F & G and spot on with the C>D>C.
I think Bo was great and I love watching those old B&W video's of him. What is it about original rock & roll numbers like that, you never seem to tire of them.
I think this one's going in the ESD.

Thanks again Vic, where would we all be etc. etc. etc.

Rod. :wink:

Slightly off topic Rod, but.....

"Strange women lying in ponds, distributing swords.....blah blah....."

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Arthur get Excalibur out of a stone?

And with our current government (I use the word in it's loosest possible sense) (sense - should that word be used in the same sentence as government) (sentence is a word that should be used in conjunction with the word long in a phrase along the lines of "long sentence for ex-government officials") maybe strange women in ponds or strange swords embedded in rock is the wave of the future....(wave, ponds, geddit?) - so retro it's cool.....

I'm rambling are'nt I.......

:D :D :D
