I Remember / Ship Song (Boo Hewerdine) -------------------------------------- This is on Boo Hewerdine's second album, Ignorance. It's in AbAb (capo at 1), but the following is written as though it's in G+G at the nut.
The bit between ^^^^^^^ and vvvvvvvvv is "The Ship Song" written by Nick Cave. The rest is written by Boo Hewerdine. [Intro]: G+G D MajorD C majorC GD x 2 G+G I remember the ....

G+G D MajorD C majorC GD oooh oooh etc. end on a G+G All chords are standard (open) shapes. I personally think that the third line of the bridge in the Ship Song (**, above) sounds better played the same as the first two lines (i.e. Am, Em, C majorC), but that doesn't seem to be what's going on on the CD. Any comments, corrections, etc. welcome. Nic Nic.Boulton@mercury.co.uk
