Hi,

This one  even has the solo tabbed out.

Here is another tab/chord chart for a song from the
Modern Lovers' 1976 album, *The Modern Lovers.*
I would be extremely interested in hearing from
anybody with corrections, comments, etc.

Thanks,

Old World

Here is another Modern Lovers song that has two chords (this time they
are Chord diagramA augmentedA & Chord diagramG+G).

Opening riff goes like this:
(please listen to the record for the rhythm, feel, and ability to keep
your place in the old world, etc., but this is the basic idea)

    Chord diagramA augmentedA

e---0-0-0-3-0-3-3-0-3-3-0-----------
B---2-2-2---2-------------3-3-3-----
G---2-2-2---2-----------------------  REPEAT FOUR TIMES
D---2-2-2---2-----------------------
A---0-0-0---0-----------------------
E---x-x-x---x-----------------------


After the opening riff, while singing the song, this little riff can
be played at the end of each phrase in which the chord is an A:

    Chord diagramA augmentedA

e---0------------------------------3--0-----0--
B---2------------------------------------3-----
G---2------------------------------------------
D---2------------------------------------------
A---0------------------------------------------
E---x------------------------------------------

Well the old world may be dead . . .


(I think this little end riff is probably played by the organ, as it
is heard on the record, but this seems to work for solo guitar.)


The solo riff from the middle of the song goes soemthing like this:


e------0-------0---0-------------------------------
B----2---2-------2---------------------------------
G---------------------2----------0--2--------------
D--------------------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------

e------0-------0-0-0---3-2------0------------------
B----2---2------------------2------------2---------
G--------------------------------------------------
D--------------------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------

e------0-------0---0-------------------------------
B----2---2-------2---------------------------------
G----------------------2----------0--2-------------
D--------------------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------

e------0-------0-0-0---3-2------0------------------
B----2---2------------------2------------2---------
G--------------------------------------------------
D--------------------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------

(please listen to the record for the exact rhythm here)

e----0---0---0---0-------------
B--2---2---2---2---2-0---------
G-----------------------2------
D------------------------------
A------------------------------
E------------------------------


e----0---0---0---0---3-2------0---
B--2---2---2---2----------2-------
G---------------------------------
D---------------------------------
A---------------------------------
E---------------------------------

e----0---0---0---0-------------
B--2---2---2---2---2-0---------
G-----------------------2------
D------------------------------
A------------------------------
E------------------------------


e----0---0---0---0---3-2------0---
B--2---2---2---2----------2-------
G---------------------------------
D---------------------------------
A---------------------------------
E---------------------------------

(then just these strummed chords a few times)

   Chord diagramA augmentedA                Chord diagramG+G              Chord diagramA augmentedA

e----------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------
G----------------------------------------
D----------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------

(and so on . . . .)


Here it is with the lyrics:


Opening riff (see above)

Chord diagramA augmentedA                              (end riff <see above>)
