ROCK 'N' ROLL STAR by Oasis (well .. Noel Gallagher)
=================== from "Definitely Maybe"
Its taken me ages to figure out that he goes to Ab at the
bridge type bit (pre-chorus). He throws in these unexpected
chords fairly often it seems (see the Supersonic transcription at
OLGA which is fine except it goes to D not E on the chorus as is
Most (if not all) of the chords are barred, the B at the
7th and theres a lot of taking off of the barre (fore) finger so it
adds an E and an A. Other than that just turn up the overdrive.
intro: B (mess around) then B A->E B
[B]I live my life in the city - there's no easy way out
[A]The days moving [E]just too fast for [B]me,
[B]Need some time in the sunshhyynnnnne - gotta slow it right down
[A]The days moving [E]just too fast for [B]me.
I [Ab]live my life for the s[E]tars that shine
[B]People say its just a waste of time
[Ab]When they said I should just [E]feed my head
[B]That to me was just a day in bed
I'll [Ab]take my car and [E]drive real far
To where they're [B]not concerned about the way we are
[A]In my mind my dreams are real
[F#]Are you concerned about the way I feel ?
[A]To-[E]night I'm a rock'n'roll [B]star
[A]To-[E]night I'm a rock'n'roll [B]star
[A]To-[E]night I'm a rock'n'roll [B]star.
Then: repeat the whole of above until :
To-night I'm a rock'n'roll star
To-night I'm a rock'n'roll star
[A]To-[E]night I'm a rock'n'roll [B]star.
[A]Are you down with who I am
[E]Look at you'll now you're all in my hands - tonight.
solo: over verse chords (B A E)
To-night I'm a rock'n'roll star
To-night I'm a rock'n'roll star
To-night I'm a rock'n'roll star.
Then at the end there is a bit of a free-for-all - it goes first to an
A (slide up from G) then I *think* it is E (fingered at 1st fret)
and an E shape slid up two frets (so a sort of F#) - I may be wrong
on this bit though - so any takers ?
