Storm Large "Angels in Gas Stations"

I have the lyrics, but I need the chords.  If you can help me out, I'd be incredibly grateful!  It's an amazing song and I can't get it out of my mind.  And, I'm so excited to have the Chordie resources available to help me with this.  No doubt, one of you amazing talents can nail this for me!  Thanks so much for your help!  Oh, by the way, I'm not looking to buy something to achieve this, so pls don't offer solutions that I can't afford.

Dino, buddy, you recommend chordpickout so often one would think you have stock in it.  If so, that's fine, it's just an observation.  It sounds really cool, but it's 40 bucks.

Thanks to Jeff for the link.

I don't consider myself to be an "amazing talent", but having said that, if you can find a video where she is not obscuring the guitar player's left hand, I might be able to help you.

Re: Storm Large "Angels in Gas Stations"

Thank you, Astro, for your response.  If I could see his hands, I could figure this out.  I can see several bar chords, which as a 12-string player with small hands, I can't do.  But, I do think I see a C in there.  I really, really appreciate your taking time to reply.  My 12-string, by the way, is a Martin.

Re: Storm Large "Angels in Gas Stations"

Okay, here's a live performance.  I need someone capable of transcribing the chords.  Please!  Give me some peace with this song that will not leave my brain!  I absolutely believe that you're out there!

Re: Storm Large "Angels in Gas Stations"

Wow, that's pretty.  It's clearly played with a piano, but I could hear it on guitar... wish I could help you out with some chords.  We do have some talent in there that will step up.  Have patience and faith.  wink

I don't know how much peace this will give you, but I think I've worked out the intro.  Try this (one measure per chord):

Gm
F/?
F
C
Bb
Dm
C
C

They run through this 8 measure progression twice before she starts singing.

Regarding F/?, it's an F chord, but the bass is something other than the low F (low E first fret).  I can't tell which string/fret the bass player is playing.  (It might be the F on the D string 3rd fret.)  If you're playing solo guitar, just play two measures of F back to back and it will sound OK.

Anyway, that's the intro as I hear it.  Others can see if their ears match up.

I don't have time right now to work out the verses, but they are likely to be combinations of the intro chords.

Anyway, good luck.

Re: Storm Large "Angels in Gas Stations"

Astro, my poor old arthritic left hand won't let me do a decent Gm.  If I start with Dm, go to F then C, it seems pretty close to what I'm singing.  But, I'm not sure how to shift all the chords to that key.  Help...?

Re: Storm Large "Angels in Gas Stations"

If you want to play along with the recording (in the same key), do this:

1.  Use a digital tuner to tune all of your strings down two half steps:  DGCFAd

2.  Play this (no barres!):

Am
G
G
D
C
Em
D
D

Or, just play the above with standard tuning and use a capo (if needed) to find the right key to suit your voice.  But you won't be able to play along with the record using those chords unless you capo on fret 10, which will (1) sound ... not good, and (2) be almost impossible unless your hands are tiny.

This is the easiest fingering I could come up with.  I hope it helps.
