Topic: Easy chords to All Along The Watchtower

Hey Gang

Just looked up the chords and they change so fast, I can't keep up. Don't suppose there's an easier way?

Like maybe in E? smile

As Stephen King wrote in his latest novel: "All that sh** starts in E."

Thanks!

Bill

Try Bob Dylans version as well as some others who have done it and look it up on youtube!

Re: Easy chords to All Along The Watchtower

Thanks Dino, I did find an easier way: Am, G and F. It's on Munsonmusic - YouTube. The Dylan version is what threw me. There's also one with capo on the 4th fret - same chords. I'm gonna try 'em both.

Thanks, my friend!

I 've  done  the  U2 version for  years  all  bar chords  Bm Am Gm works  for  me and the  solo  flows  well with  these  chords, theres  a  clip at  the  end  of  this  short vid  of  our concert  in Crete .

Re: Easy chords to All Along The Watchtower

I went and took a look Grah, and left a note for you. As I said in the note, you really make it all look so easy!

Thanks for the link! Pretty lady, too. Did y'all harmonize on the "Colored Girls go..... doo-dootie-doo's"? smile

I have the true stereo version of that tune and it just completely knocks me out when I hear that part. smile

When the guy started singing the Greek version of "Watchtower" I was a bit taken aback, but then you took it and I was "home" again!

Continue to be well, my friend and keep making that great sound.

Your Bud,

Bill

Re: Easy chords to All Along The Watchtower

You're right, my friend --- those are the chords, but the changes are too fast for me. I'm not sure, but I'm thinking I could leave one of those fast-changes out and stay with the one before it. Is that possible? F to Am is where my problem lies. Not the chords - those I can do - but the speed at which they change. A chord per word, almost. smile

Thanks for the correction, Dino

Bill you can make it your song you can go slower or faster,and also try it without using the f chord all the time.
