The album has been messed around with.

I don't know if it's because Lee was tuning everything down to 2frets below concert,mabe Lillywhite,with his cut and paste and all the other shite he did used some kind of pitch shifter/time stretcher thing to some degree(although I don't see the point).

I.O.U. is in G on the album but is meant to be in A
Timeless(as mentioned)is in G on album but played in A usually
And any of you who've tried playing along with the album in it's entirety will know there's a lot of retuning to do in between songs.

The way Lee tells it,the album was put together like 'Free As A Bird',stuff like backing vocals being lifted off demos and pasted into the master and stuff like that,so it's hard to tell what's going on really.

And if you play Timeless in G, you can't do that whole 'D' chord with 'G' in the bass thing that happens on the line 'open your mind'-like they do on Much Music.

Still love John's letcherous tone of voice during this part of the conversation.

John"Are you going to th show tonight?"
Fit lass in short shorts"Cha.....Look at me!"
John"OH,I'M LOOKIN' " 8)

Smooth moves jonny boy!

Cheers,
Paul

Its in Eb i think, he's tends to use this alot. You simply play A to E then he uses a run up F# in bass mute the A string and note the A on the G string to get to the G then it goes Dsus (leave the high F# on the e string 2nd fret out, think its just a suspension of D) then A.
The chorus is the relevant minor which is F# - Dsus - A - Dsus (with the G in the bass with the correct rhythm)
The solo which no one i thinks mentioned is A - Dsus - A but then to a G. but when you get to the G shape play the A note (G string 2nd fret) and if i remember right i think he hits the C note under the Bass G with one finger but keeping the Top G and D notes held, when you get to the D, hold the A on g string, (that's if your bothered about playing the little bits) then Dsus - A. back in to it. If this doesn't make sense i'll try and do it agen, Such a tune, Fav version, just amazing.

Thanks - understand the f# run but can you give us a chord diagram / expanation for the "note the A on the G string to get to the G" as i'm confused i think

Is the verse it A-E-G-D sus (G bass) - D sus (F# bass)- A ?

Sorry for being simple :oops:

The run up from E to G (the bit between the chords)

E|---|---|--|--|--|<<<Mute that 1
B|---|---|--|--|---|<<<that 1
G|---| A|--|--|--|
D|---|-- |--|--|--|--
A|---|---|--|--|--|-- <<<that 1
E|---|F#|--|--|--|--|

Then its G.

The solo bit; is just A - D - A - G (hit the g chord then play whats underneath)

E|---|--|G|--|--
B|---|--|D|--|---|
G|---|A|--|--|--|
D|---|--|--|--|--|
A|---|--|--|--|--| <<Mute this or play the C (3rd fret)
E|---|--|G|--|--|

the first bit of the chord sequence is A to E, but i think it could be Em but Power plays the G# which makes it major so im not quite sure! can't remember if thats in the key of A but that should help

I know it's clear to most people but is it that you play the A chord, then E chord, then you mute the 6th string (E) on the F# fret, then mute the 5th string (A)? But then you note an A on the 2nd string of the 3rd chord (G) then play the G chord and etc.?

The rest is very clear but the first part for me I've just been going back again and again to the post seeing if I can figure it out myself. :D
