"Straight Shooter" by John Phillips

Performed by the Mamas and the Papas on "If You Can Believe Your Eyes =
And Ears" on Dunhill Records, 1966. =20
Riffs:

Don't bother with these if you only have one guitar.  Also, of course, =
you'll have to listen to the record to get the timing exactly and =
everything. =20


Play this riff over all the A chord diagramA augmentedA and A chord diagramA7A7 chords, except during the bridge

During the bridge (I'm pretty sure these are supposed to be played on a =
bass, but it sounds fine on guitar):

After "just to find what I'm lookin' for" on both bridges


---5---5---0---3---0---3---5--------


Between the words "no" and "more"=20

On the 1st bridge:

E--0---0---3---5---7---5---3--------
A-----------------------------------
D----------------------------0---2


On the 2nd bridge:=20

E--0---0---3---5---7---5---3---5---0


Chords:=20

I think the chords sound better played in the basic bar shapes (A, A7, =
and A chord diagramD7D7 at the 5th, and A chord diagramE7E7 at the 7th) as opposed to the open shapes.  I =
guess you could also put a capo on the 5th fret and play them as if they =
were open, assuming another guitar is playing the riffs.

Urg... I guess I can't post full lyrics... sorry if things are confusing
