This only has the few words I can remember with it. If you want the full words maybe someone else knows them, or you can work them out yourself (kind of me I know!). If desparate I could go and get them myself I suppose, but I think I've done enough here! You really need the music to play along with to get an idea of what's going on. If you're unfamiliar with these types of chords then best to have a mess around with them before hand to get the feel. It's all really quite easy once you get the hang of it. My version of Tom Tidder's Ground uses the same principle and types of chords - quite a common thing for Roy to do. I haven't fully road-tested this so if anyone has any comments or corrections, please post them. Gordon ------ Short and Sweet (Harper/Gilmour) Tuning: Standard with dropped bottom E to D With the chords below, play either all six strings with one big downward strum, or just the highest three with the bottom strings ringing (as drones) (v. important that!). Or else give the bottom strings little strums inbetween playing the main tune on the high strings. Listen (or watch if you have chance - sorry non-uk readers!) to what Roy does and you'll see what I mean (except in the trashy bit - see note below). (If you're clever or called Richard Thompson you can play the bass line from the 2nd verse onwards on them whilst playing the top chords. On the other hand you may have a talented friend or a son called Nick who could play the bass line and then solo in the middle thrashy part). Here's the naming scheme I've used (all chords should strictly be G/D etc but that seems unnecessary and longwinded)(note: my numbering doesn't signify anything else - just for for my convenience to show its not a normal chord - except for Dmj7 of course): 6th fret |_|_|_|_|_| 6th : |_|_|_|_|_1 : :....|_|_|_|_|_|...|_|_|_|_|_|...|_|_|_|_|_|...|_|_|_2_|_|..: |_|_|_1_|_2 |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_3_| |_|_|_|_3_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_1_|_2 |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_3_| |_|_|_|_|_1 |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_2_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_3_| |_|_|_|_|_| G1 A1 Bm1 Dmj7 (playing hint: use the 3rd finger as a sort of "anchor" to slide up and down on, swapping your 1st and 2nd fingers behind it) =========== =========== =========== |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_1_|_2 |_|_|_1_|_2 |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_3_| |_|_|_|_3_4 |_|_|_|_|_1 |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_3_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_2_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| D Ds Em2 (x x x) (x x x) (x x x) (x x x) =========== =========== =========== =========== |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| 1_2_3_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| 1_2_3_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| |_|_|_|_|_| 1_2_3_|_|_| D Em1 B1 A2 (these 4 are the "thrashy" bit's chords. The 3 high strings aren't really played directly, just occasionally inbetween sliding up and down the bottom 3 strings for the main "tune" (in true Harper style!). This is where you also bring in a bit of overlaid distortion with chorus and echo if you have a couple of Quadraverbs handy!) Intro : D D Ds Ds Ds D D----- (D)D D Ds Ds Ds Ds DS1 D D------ G1 G1 G1 A1 Bm1 Bm1 A1 A1 G1 G1 G1 A1 Bm1 Bm1 A1 A1 G1 G1 Dmj7 Dmj7------- G1 G1 G1 A1 Bm1 Bm1 A1 A1 G1 G1 G1 A1 Bm1 Bm1 A1 A1 G1 G1 Dmj7 Dmj7 Em2 D------ Verse1: You ask, what is the qua-li-ty G1 G1 G1 A1 Bm1 Bm1 A1 A1 Of life, seeking to jus-ti-fy the part you play G1 G1 G1 A1 Bm1 Bm1 A1 A1 G1 G1 Dmj Dmj7.......... etc G1 G1 G1 A1 Bm1 Bm1 A1 A1 ....an-y more or less than short and sweet G1 G1 G1 A1 Bm1 Bm1 A1 A1 G1 G1 Dmj7 Dmj7 Em2 D Verse 2 as above ending: (picked accentuating the bass line) ..in your garden C C/B C/A C/G C/F# C/E D (this involves a bit of stretching for the G on the low D so you have to cheat a bit with the notes above - in fact Roy abandons the C altogether and just steps down on the low D strumming whatever he happens to hit at the top end) then intro and back to 2 more verses then into the trashy bit: (picked:) C C/B C/A C/G C/F# D1 (strummed madly:) Em D1-Em D1-Em D1-Em A2 B1 (repeated a number of times) and then into the intro again to finish. Or something like that anyway!
