Re: Looking for chords

as far as i could work it out and the chord changes are made to sound funny because of the timing changes go (i think) like this;

Bb-Gm-F-Eb FOR THE VERSES

CHORUSES ARE; Ab-Eb-Bb-Eb. it's a lovely song but if you play it as recorded you'll need ...well i don't know what you'll need, but i wouldn't play it that way, i'd do it more rhythmically.

hope i could help

There are two "L's" in Phill

Phill on "you are the one" on the word "one" the keys play a Ebsus4 to a Eb and the guitar solo modulates to a Db Ab Eb and the last chords in the solo are Db Ab Gb Eb other then that the chord progression you give is correct. I like the tune but it took a little getting used to the rhythm sort of like a hymn smile

I chordified this for you.   What a moving song!
Thanks for sharing.

I saw Richie Havens and (actually met him) in 1976 at my college where he was performing.

I do not know if it is different than what Phill or Dino said b/c they are way beyond my playing ability  smile

Hey Pete!  I moved this over to Song requests for you... and locked up a duplicate thread that was hanging out in Chat Corner so you dont' get duplicate replies.  smile

Beautiful song, Pete. I remember listening to Richie Havens a long time ago.

Live in the "now" - a contentment of the moment - the past is gone - the future doesn't exist - all we ever really have is now and it's always "now".

There are a few chords missing namely the Ebsus4 and in music notation you don't put a F# in a flat key it is a Gb this chordifie is useful but not entirely accurate;

Re: Looking for chords

Thanks guys. I'll try to work it out from there. I was hoping for easy cowboy chords but I will work through it from the chords you gave me. Thanks again.
