Hall And Oates chords for Its a laugh

Guitar chords with lyrics

This is entirely my own work.

 Intro: A chord diagramG/AG/A   A chord diagramA/BA/B

 Verse:

 A chord diagramC majorC        G/C
 You must..

 C/Bb   F/Bb    A chord diagramBb majorBb
 ..But you

 A chord diagramA/BA/B
  You remember me..

   A chord diagramA/GA/G    A chord diagramG+G
 ..boyfriend

 Chorus:

 A chord diagramA augmentedA              A chord diagramA augmentedA+5     F#m/A    A?  (see chord shapes below)
 It's a laugh..

 A chord diagramBm7Bm7
 Funny thing is..

          A chord diagramA/C#A/C#

 Guitar Chords Defined:

 Intro:

 A chord diagramG/AG/A = x05430 (or simply x00000)
 A chord diagramA/BA/B = x22222

 Verse:

 The chords I listed above in the verse are more keyboard oriented..
 For guitar, this is simpler, and sounds fine:

 G/C (A chord diagramCMaj9Cmaj9) (x35433)
 You must...

 A chord diagramBbmaj7Bbmaj7 (x13231)
 But you..

 A chord diagramA/BA/B (x22222)
 You remember..

 A chord diagramA/GA/G (3x2220)
 ..Boy

 A chord diagramG+G (320033)
 -friend..

 Chorus:

 A chord diagramA augmentedA (x02220)
 A chord diagramA augmentedA+5 (x03220)
 F#m/A (x04220)
 A? (x05220)

 Basically, you just keep moving up a half-step on the A chord diagramD MajorD string,
starting
 with a regular A chord diagramA augmentedA Major chord.

 Same if you're playing it on a piano. Start with an A chord diagramA augmentedA (A-C#-E), and
keep
 moving the A chord diagramE MajorE up a half-step..

 Then:

 A chord diagramBm7Bm7 (x24232)
 A chord diagramA/C#A/C# (x42220)
 A chord diagramD MajorD (xx0232)

 One more thing:

 Before the second chorus (at about 2:03 in the recording), there's a
cool
 harmony guitar lick..it's about a second long, so not the easiest
thing
 to try and transcribe, but heres a shot. I wish I had a second
guitarist
 here so I could see if these two parts sound anything close to what
I hear in the song.

    Guitar 1:

E----------------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------5----------------------------------------
G---2h4p2---------------------------------------------------
D---------------4p2-------------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------------

   Guitar 2:

E----------------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------------------
G--------------------------6------------------------------------
D---4h5p4----------------------------------------------------
A----------------7p5-------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------------


 It's a really fast lick as you'll hear in the song. If you have
another
 guitar player, to try play those in harmony, and let me know if it's
close.
