Gleemer Guided By Voices
But, you ask, what about Gleemer? Well, here's my try: It starts with G3 C3 D5 (all barre, the numbers are the frets for the barre, DON'T play a D fifth). Then it goes to the verses: G G* Em C This G* is just a G with an F# (2nd fret, E string) in the bass, but I can't play it with my thumb, so I hire a bassist. The chorus is the same, and to get from the verses to the chorus, after the C go D C G and into the chorus. I realize this probably makes little, if any, sense, but listen to the album and you can probably figure it out (I actually got some help from the Bevil Web version). I worked up a punk version of this with powerchords, but it sounds really cheesy as a punk song, so don't try it at home. From Dougie: Actually on Gleemer, I would like to add the following.... INTRO: Cmajor9 with suspension....ok make a G chord...now move your 1st and 2nd fingers down one (ie your 2nd finger which is on 2nd fret/5th string... move it down to 2nd fret 4th string....OK?) Song: I play the following G Bm Em D Then when "The higher clouds" I play: G G/F#M Em C Then when Toby sings "Could this be...": G C D End Riff: String:6 6 6 6 6 6 5 5 5 5 5 Fret :0 0 2 2 3 3 3 3 2 2 0 Try this riff anyway you would like...you could add String 6 Fret 4 instead of using S:6 and F:0...so start with S:6 F:2
