Guitar chords with lyrics
"You Ain't Got a Hold on Me" by Mark Kozelek Off the album _Rock_and_Roll_Singer_ Transcribed by Brandon Hall, November 5, 2000 (firstname.lastname@example.org -- remove ".jimbob" to circumvent spam control) This transcription is all my own work.
Musically speaking, the verse/chorus division in this song is a little murky, but it's clear enough in the lyrics. There are three major chord progressions (which I've labeled I, II and III). The strum pattern per quarter note is constant throughout, and goes like B-d--udu (where 'B' means to downpick the bass note). (I): E MajorE C#m7C#m7 | E MajorE C#m7C#m7 | G6G6 G6/F# | E MajorE | E MajorE C#m7C#m7 | E MajorE C#m7C#m7 | E5/D E5/C# | E MajorE | (II): Amaj7Amaj7 | E/G# | E5/C#' E5/B | Amaj7Amaj7 | (x2) (III): E5/C#' E5/B | Amaj7Amaj7 | E5/C#' E5/B | Amaj7Amaj7 | Intro: (I) Verse: (I) (II) Chorus: (II) Ending: (III) The song runs: Intro, Verse, Chorus, Verse, Chorus, Ending. The lyrics (written by AC/DC) are all over the net, so I won't post them here. --------------------------------------------------------- Chord fingerings (using 6-string standard tuning EADGBE): 0x9990 9x9990 3x0400 2x0400 x5x400 x4x400 E MajorE C#m7C#m7 G6G6 G6/F# E5/D E5/C# x07990 4x2450 x42400 x22400 Amaj7Amaj7 E/G# E5/C#' E5/B Notes: I'm very confident of the accuracy of all the chords in I & III. For the E/G#, I'd really like to be doing 4x7990 (it matches the Amaj7Amaj7 better), but I don't see how anyone could finger that. The E/G# I've posted sounds real clean as a substitute, but if you find it too difficult to finger quickly, you can try 4x2400 or even 4xx454. On the E5/C#' and E5/B chords, I find it easier to barre the second fret with the first segment of my index finger (similar to the way I play an ordinary A augmentedA major chord).
