E|-x-| You know the part where Gord is kinda talkin to himself B|-3-| "How do I explain this, how do I put it into words, G|-4-| It's one thing or another but it's neither this nor that" D|-2-| Well this is the chord that is wailing away behind it. A|-x-| And if this ain't it then slide it up a fret or two E|-x-| Like I said, I don't have my guitar here but I'm pretty sure that the shape of the chord is right.

Rod, I was just looking at what you sent me on Blow At High Dough and I don't understand what part it is. Is it the beginning rhythm? I know the Intro and I think it goes like this:
E--------I-----------I--------I--------I B--12----I---(12)----I--(12)--I--(12)--I G--------I-----------I--------I--------I D--------I-----------I--------I--------I A--------I-----------I--------I--------I E--------I-----------I--------I--------I
This is the part where I think the base is playing just before the words start. Repeat this first part once more while the lyrics are beginning.

Next the second guitar comes in and plays something like this:
Everybody was.. For miles.. Out at.. E-------I--------------I----------I---------I----------I-------I B---2---I------(2)-----I---2/4----I--(4)----I-4---2/4--I--(4)--I G-------I--------------I----------I---------I----------I-------I D-------I--------------I----------I---------I----------I-------I A-------I--------------I----------I---------I----------I-------I E-------I--------------I----------I---------I----------I-------I
Some kind.. Well I ain't no movie star.. E----------I--------I--------I--------------------------I B--4--2/4--I--(4)---I---8/7--I--(7)----------9-------11-I G----------I--------I--------I--------------------------I D----------I--------I--------I--------------------------I A----------I--------I--------I--------------------------I E----------I--------I--------I--------------------------I
But I .. YEA I CAN... E--(11)---I--------I----------I B---------I--------I----------I G---------I---2----I--(2)-----I D---------I---2----I--(2)-----I A---------I---0----I--(0)-----I E---------I--------I----------I
