Knock Me Down !!!

Postby kopite1892 » Fri Jul 18, 2014 6:31 pm

I rarely come here these days, but I was listening to Knock Me Down the other day and I think it's my new favourite La's tune.

All the tabs available sound wrong to me, and I would love a proper one.

Cheers

There's something here:

Lee definitely tunes the low E down on this video (22m 15s): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdlZ0m0mzh8

The riff played by Cammy etc. could be (I'm not great at hearing these things so apologies if this is completely wrong!):

Verse: D, G (D shape at 7th fret), F (D shape at 5th fret), G (D shape at 7th fret)

Variation before bridge: D, G (D shape at 7th fret), hold F (D shape at 5th fret)

Bridge: C, G

Chorus (I'm a jack in the box...): D, G, F, G then D, G and then a riff (I've got no idea what!).

Indeed. I took some free time to study that video. I have almost all the chords and riffs down. A tablature is on the way.

Fun song to play, very rythmic but laid back
