Welcome to todays edition of
"Conrete Blonde for the practicing musician"
This is my interpretation of "When You Smile" off the album
"Mexican Moon" so there are no guarantees but it sounds good
WHEN YOU SMILE
I dreamed last night I was born a hundred.....
... 'cos I could lose everything in a minute or two, yeah
A G A A
Its not ????? you can stop the years behind..
The A and G above are played something like this:
|E|| || E|| |
|B|| || B|| |
|G|| || G|| |
|D|| 7 5 || D|| 5 |
|A|| 7 || A|| 5 |
|E|| 5 || E|| 3 3 |
the A and G repeat over much of the song.
Chorus: (With Distortion) D5 A5 C5 G5
When you smile, I don't know what to do
D5 A5 C5 G5
Cos I could lose everything in a minute or two
A5 C5 E5 G5
And it seems like the end of the world
A(as in the intro)
When you smile..
for those that dont know, D5,A5,C5,etc are just
power chords: D5 x577xx
In the chorus Jim sometimes hits the open strings
in his trasnsitions from one chord to another,eg:
| E|| |
| B|| |
| G|| 7 7 |
| D|| 7 7 7 7 |
| A|| 5 5 7 7 |
| E|| 0 5 5 |
It doesnt look like much
but it adds a bit of oomph!
Happy playing everyone.
Bye for now
