Hot Chocolate - You Sexy Thing

Topic starter  

So, after many years of trying to get into the Pips, I gave up in frustration. Despite a glaringly obvious talent as evidenced by dozens of video tapes sent to her, Gladys Knight has never even responded to me directly. Aside from a restraining order, I have heard nothing.

So, I turn my attention and obvious talent towards another lineup. Hot Chocolate. To that end, I have decided to share my quest with my fellow GN'ers.

This song was something of a hit a few decades ago. Nice groove and very catchy. Best of all, you can do with it whatever way you want. There was a thread recently about having no rhythm. Here's the challenge. Listen to the song (search you-tube if you can't remember how it goes ), and turn it into a single guitar song. You can do it with the chords below. To paraphrase the great Wes Inman, or make the point that he made, you gotta get the feel of it. No, it ain't gonna be like the recording, but it's fun as heck to play.

So, break out your leisure suits. (I know some of you got 'em. Don't make me name names.)

EDIT: Well, just in case there are young viewers, let me post a link that is clean. Youn never know what one of the words in the song title will bring up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHN6YXD6E98&mode=related&search=

Roy,

This is great. I clearly remember this song and its funny how "kitchky" stuff like this is making a comeback. Great job breaking it down to fairly simple chords - can't wait to give it spin.

Marvellous! Altogether the most memorable scene from The Full Monty (IMHO) was the guys standing in the Unemployment line dancing to this one.

Thanks,

David
