Summer of '69 - Bryan Adams

The verses are just A chord diagramD MajorD A chord diagramA augmentedA A chord diagramD MajorD A chord diagramA augmentedA ... as many as needed  with the change
occurring on every second bar. There is an additional two bars of A chord diagramD MajorD
at the start as well.
The way to play it is something like this:

 D.   .   .   .     .   .   .   .     D.   .   .   .     .   .   .   .

 The dots show the beat.
Use moderate amounts of overdrive, and mute the 2's with your palm to get
the distinctive percussive sound.               0

The Chorus chords are |A chord diagramB minorBm|A chord diagramA augmentedA|A chord diagramD MajorD|A chord diagramG+G|A chord diagramB minorBm|A chord diagramA augmentedA|A chord diagramD MajorD|A chord diagramG+G|A chord diagramB minorBm|A chord diagramA augmentedA| (I use A chord diagramBB instead of A chord diagramB minorBm)
use standard open A,D, and A chord diagramG+G and a barred A chord diagramA augmentedA shape for B.

The keyboard riff is sort of an arpegiated A chord diagramD MajorD and A chord diagramA augmentedA ie.
 A chord diagramD MajorD                                    A chord diagramA augmentedA

This sounds a bit messy with overdrive, so play it clean, or (even easier)
just play the melody part (which is mainly what you hear on the CD anyway)

e|-0-----2-----3---|---2-----0---2---|-----------------|------------------|
b|-----------------|-----------------|-0-----2-----3---|---2-----0---2----|

For the key change after the second chorus, the chords are:
|A chord diagramFF|A chord diagramBb majorBb|A chord diagramC majorC|A chord diagramBb majorBb|A chord diagramFF|A chord diagramBb majorBb|A chord diagramC majorC|C|  again use the barred A chord diagramA augmentedA shape for A chord diagramBb majorBb and C.
That's about all for Summer of '69
