Stand By Me
Oasis

I was learning this song the other night and thought that it was easy enough to be posted on the ESD.
There are some lovely easy chord changes and makes a nice change to all the oldies I've posted in the past

Here are the chords and no barres

G 230033
B7sus4 X21200
C X32010
C2/B X20010
D XX0232
Em 022000
A X02220
Am X02210
Fmaj7 XX3210
D7/F# 2X0210
Cadd9 X32033

Intro
G / B7sus4 / C - C2/B - D /

Verse 1
(G) Made a meal and threw it (B7sus4) on Sunday
I've (C) got a (C2/B) lot of things to (D) learn
(G) Said I would and I'll be (B7sus4) one day,
Be (C)fore my heart (C2/B) starts to (D) burn.

Bridge 1

(C) So what's the matter with (D) you?
(G) Sing me (D) something (EM) new.
Don't you know the (A) cold and wind and rain don't know,
They (C) only seem to come and go (D) away.

Verse 2
(G) Times are hard when things have (B7sus4) got no meaning
I've (C) found a (C2/B) key upon the (D) floor.
(G) Maybe you and I will (B7sus4) not believe in
The (C) things we find (C2/B)behind the (D) door.

Bridge 2
As Bridge 1

Chorus 1

(G) Stand by (D) me, nobody (Am) knows,
The way its gonna be (C) / (Fmaj7) / (D7/F#)
(G) Stand by (D) me, nobody (Am) knows,
The way its gonna be (C) / (Fmaj7) / (D7/F#)
(G) Stand by (D) me, nobody (Am) knows,
Yeah, nobody knows (C)
(D) the way its gonna (G) be

Verse 3

(G) If your leaving, will you (B7sus4) take me with you?
I'm (C) tired of talking on (C2/B) my (D) phone.
(G) There is one thing I can (B7sus4) give you,
My (C) heart can never (C2/B) be your home (D)

Bridge 3
as bridge 1

chorus 3

(G) Stand by (D) me, nobody (Am) knows,
The way its gonna be (C) / (Fmaj7) / (D7/F#)
(G) Stand by (D) me, nobody (Am) knows,
The way its gonna be (C) / (Fmaj7) / (D7/F#)
(G) Stand by (D) me, nobody (Am) knows,
The way its gonna be (C) / (Fmaj7) / (D7/F#)
(G) Stand by (D) me, nobody (Am) knows,
Yeah, Nobody (C) knows
(D) The way its gonna be (Em) / D / (Cadd9)
(Cadd9) Maybe I can (Em) see yeah. (D7/F#) (Cadd9)
(Cadd9) Don't you know the (A) cold and wind and rain don't Know,
They (C) only seem to come and go (D) away, Hey

Last chorus

(G) Stand by (D) me, nobody (Am) knows,
The way its gonna be (C) / (Fmaj7) / (D7/F#)
(G) Stand by (D) me, nobody (Am) knows,
The way its gonna be (C) / (Fmaj7) / (D7/F#)
(G) Stand by (D) me, nobody (Am) knows,
The way its gonna be (C) / (Fmaj7) / (D7/F#)
(G) Stand by (D) me, nobody (Am) knows,
Yeah, God only (C) knows
(D) The way its gonna (G) be

I don't think this one is too difficult for beginners
As I think that is the weird chord names that puts most
People off, well it used to be that way with me. I'd look
At the song and see something like D7/F or B7sus4 and just
Turn the page and look for something with E / A / D in it
And nothing else. Its only when I started to look at the
Fingerings that I realised how stupid I was at being scared
Of trying something new.

So give this a go, surprise yourself!

Be excellent to each other & party on dudes!

I like this one Rodders. Nice easy strum to it.

I just listened to a clip of it and it sounds like a DD duud pattern would work nicely. The DD is a little stronger full strum and duud is basically a quick strum of the treble stings. Works for me anyway.

Nice job, Rodders...there aren't a lot of people who'll still own up to liking Oasis, but I'm one of them....I like the way they use slightly unusual chords...

I'll have a proper run-through of this in the AM, but for now, just a couple of little observations...

1 - You've transposed the fingering on the G chord...should read 3 2 0 0 3 3 NOT 2 3 0 0 3 3...

2 - Your B7sus4 chord is actually an Emaj7sus4 - using E as the root, you've got E(1) A(4) B(5) and Eb(7) and in the same vein,

3 - Your C2/B is actually a Cmaj9 - you're using the 1st, 3rd, 5th 7th and 9th notes in the scale of C....

Looking at the chords, seems at first glance there might be a case for using fuller chords if you can manage it, to give a slightly more melodic bassline...I'll know better in the morning when I can find a copy of the song and run through it....

:D :D :D

Vic, if you want to post other chord shapes as you said maybe fuller shapes please go ahead.

I see what you mean about the G chord fingerings, my mistake, working to fast on the keyboard is my excuse :roll:

As for the names I've used for the chords they have come straight from the book I copied it from :wink:

I'm really getting into Oasis just lately. I just watched an acoustic clip of this song and thought "I wonder if this is on GN"

And it is, and my brother put there! Got to have a go at this now!

Oh! and here's the clip, totally great!!!

Big thanks Rodders
