Lynard Skynard Freebird Chords
Hullo, thought id have a go at adding something, thought id do Freebird, the chords are simple so here we go:
G (3 2 0 0 0 2)
D/F# (2 X 0 2 3 2)
Em (0 2 2 0 0 0)
F (1 3 3 2 1 1)
C (0 3 2 0 1 0)
Dsus4 (X X 0 2 3 3)
Bb (x 1 3 3 3 1)
If I leave here tomorrow, Would you still remember me...
G D/F# E F C Dsus4
Then changes here to repeat F, C and Dsus2:
Ohhh, And this bird you cannot change...
F, C, Dsus4
Then when speeds up:
Lord I cant change, Wont you fly...
G Bb C G Bb C
Then for the solo using different fingerings for the chords cos it sounds better without open notes:
G (3 5 5 4 3 3) then use a diff Bb then previous cos its easy to slide up to at this part:
Bb (6 8 8 7 6 6) then there's a C,
C (8 10 10 9 8 8)
Yeah so just repeat those three during solo
That final part helped me a bit on my barres.
But yeah thats how I play along with the chords, dunno if its any good, as for the solo, I havent a clue.
may be I could add a bit of info. Regarding the chord progression, it goes like this
if you count it in sixteen notes (like I do)
if you count it quavers (which is a bit easier to start)
Given the fact that the original recordings features several guitar parts, if you don't have a music sheet you can choose your own one, so i suggest you a good strumming pattern (counted in quavers):
start with it and then try a bit of variation and there you go.
Otherwise even a simple
