Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics
Major upgrade!! After one year development the new version of Chordie is now online! Please give feedback.


Baby Blue  Badfinger

Title: Baby Blue
Album: Straight Up/Greatest Hits
Words and music by: Pete Ham
Tabbed by: Chris Clark
There's no need for a capo to play this breakup song (also covered by
Aimee Mann), but it's definitely a barre-chord monster. The fills and
solos are tabbed for (cutaway) acoustic guitar, so stretch and hammer
and fool around with different fingerings if the notes feel awkward on
electric.
