The Mayor Of Simpleton - XTC
-----------------------------
from 'Oranges and Lemons'
words & music Andy Partridge

[Transcribed by Duncan Batey, djb@maths.bath.ac.uk]

[Notes: The 'C D chord diagramDD' in the verse is played on the track by sliding the
 C chord diagramCC chord up to 3rd fret and back, arpeggiating(?), while the bass line
 dances around to wonderful effect. I just strum the chords. I also
 tend to play a lot of the chords with the two little fingers at 3rd
 fret, except for the D chord diagramDD, e.g.

 ----0-------2--------0--------0--------

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

 This generally makes it easier to shift between chords, and makes
 things a bit more interesting than playing them straight, although
 it's not always appropriate -- in the bridge for instance]
