PRETTY IN PINK
by the Psychedelic Furs
from the 1981 album Talk Talk Talk
(transcribed by Dan Scheraga  dsche@erols.com, danscheraga@hotmail.com)

Here we go, an 80's classic that sounds great and is pretty damn easy to
play.

This song is best played with two guitars: One dirty and one clean. If
you've only got one guitarist in your band, play the dirty part.

I find the dirty guitar part sounds best with the D, A chord diagramA augmentedA and A chord diagramE minorEm played as
Open chords and the rest barred. Also, with only the three or four
lowest strings strummed.

For the intro riff, the dirty guitar plays this. It's repeated again
later on in the song:

A chord diagramD MajorD      A chord diagramBB  A chord diagramA augmentedA  A chord diagramG+G     A chord diagramA augmentedA
A chord diagramD MajorD      A chord diagramBB  A chord diagramA augmentedA  A chord diagramG+G     A chord diagramA augmentedA

...and for the verse, the dirty guitar plays this:

A chord diagramD MajorD    A chord diagramC majorC    A chord diagramG+G    A chord diagramA augmentedA
A chord diagramD MajorD    A chord diagramC majorC    A chord diagramG+G    A chord diagramA augmentedA
A chord diagramD MajorD    A chord diagramC majorC    A chord diagramG+G    A chord diagramA augmentedA
A chord diagramD MajorD    A chord diagramC majorC    A chord diagramG+G    A chord diagramA augmentedA

And for the chorus, this:

A chord diagramE minorEm	A chord diagramF# minorF#m	A chord diagramG minorGm	A chord diagramF# minorF#m
A chord diagramE minorEm	A chord diagramF# minorF#m	A chord diagramG minorGm	A chord diagramF# minorF#m


Now, the clean guitar strums the same riff throughout the intro and the

verse. Basically, it's all just variations on the A chord diagramD MajorD and A chord diagramA augmentedA chords. Keep it
open and jangly:

-3-3-3-2---2---2---2-3-3-3-2--0-0---------------------------
-3-3-3-3---3---3---3-3-3-3-3--3-0-0-0-0-0--0--0---3-3-3-2---
-2-2-2-2---2---2---2-2-2-2-2--2-0-1-1-1-0--0--0---2-2-2-2---
----------------------------------0-0-0-0--0--0---2-2-2-2---
------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------

For the chorus, the clean guitar adds a little bit of distortion. If you
Have a swell pedal, use it.
Repeat this riff four times on the high A chord diagramE MajorE string:

-2--0--2-3--2--0-----

That's it! Have fun with it.
