Title:  I'm A Joker
Artist: Tom Petty
Author: Gregory Pamplin


Please note, this is all my own work.

I've looked around on the 'net to see what chords The Steve Miller band =
used, and then went from there.  If you notice though, Tom's band =
sings/plays this in a completely different key to Steve's band.

Anyhow, the song just keeps repeating the chrods: F-B-C-B-A-F.  Listen =
to the song for the timing and chord changes.

When I play it with my band and am the only guitarist, I will use all =
power chords (F5-B-C5) without any distortion through my amp, but when I =
have.  But when I have an accompanying guitarist, I will use power =
chords, and the other gutarist will usually back me up with open chords.

Nonetheless, the chords are as follows:

POWER CHORDS
      F      B      C      A OR A*
e|---------------------------------
B|---------------------------------
G|-----------3------5------2-------
D|---3-------3------5------2----7--
A|---3-------1------3------0----7--
E|---1--------------------------5--

*Denotes that both A chords are the same pitch, and ill work equally =
well.  It's just that by using the second one, it is hard to get back to =
the F chord quickly.


Finally, the chrod pattern (in detail):
The chords are played lik this........
  FF-FFBB-BBCC-CCBBBBAAAA-FF

It's that simple folks!

Good luck.
