Hand In My Pocket chords by Alanis Morissette

Guitar chords with lyrics

I know this song is pretty basic, musically, but I figured it would be
timely and work well in my solo acoustic sets around the San Jose-area
coffeehouses. Since I went to the trouble of transcribing all the lyrics,
I can't see a reason not to share it here!

I believe Alanis sings this in the key of D; to accomodate my male singing
voice, I have transposed it down to Bb (or B, depending on capo placement).
I use 'open-A' fingering, with the capo on the first or second fret. I've
shown the music below as just being in 'A', however. (Put your capo on
the 5th fret to play along with the record, or transpose this back to the
open-D position without a capo).

As the music is basically a 'drone' type of sound, I use variations of the
basic open-A chord position to lend some variance to my solo accompaniment,
namely, the -sus2 and -sus4 forms of the basic A-chord, as follows:

  A Asus2 Asus4

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

The chord variations below are only suggestions;
mix 'em up as you see fit!

Here's the song:

VERSION 2





   This is a great song that took forever to figure out, so I got the JLP

songbook. After a while and after learning the chords I finally figured
out the
live version of the song (with my own little things added). What are we
waiting
for!?!

A few things...
	(1). Each space is a sixteenth note (e.i. four spaces equal a
	   quarter note)
	(2). This song uses the regular E,A,D,G,B,E tuning (E,B,G,D,A,E
	   if you prefer)
	(3). This song sounds nice both w/ an electric (clean) and an
	   acoustic. I'm not sure about a 12-string (cause I don't
	   have one!!!)
