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.
>
> Actually the part that I tabbed above *is* the bass part. :)
>
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

I THINK THE MAIN RHYTHM GOES AS FOLLOWS
[E]  
[B]  
[G] [4] [4] [4] [4] [4] [4] [4] [4]  
[D]A [4]2 [4]2 [4]0 [4]2 [4]2 [4]0 [4]2 [4]0
[E]  
At least it is how I play it and it sounds good to me any suggestions
or corrections?
