Short And Sweet

Roy Harper


(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)

(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  Dmj7 Dmj7-------

        G1 G1    G1   A1   Bm1 Bm1   A1 A1  G1 G1  Dmj7 Dmj7 Em2 D------

You ask, what is the qua-li-ty
Of life, seeking to jus-ti-fy the part you play
G1 G1 G1 A1 Bm1 Bm1 A1 A1 G1 G1 Dmj Dmj7..........

 G1G1G1A1Bm1Bm1A1A1 more or less than short and sweet

Verse 2 as above ending:
(picked accentuating the bass line) your garden
 (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!

A2 C C/B C/E C/F# C/G D
