Help? Chord voicings and such.

Help? Chord voicings and such.

Postby xero92 » Thu Jul 23, 2009 10:29 am

Does anyone have an instructional video for this song? Actually it would even be a huge hand just to see somebody tab out the chord voicings they use for different parts of the tab. Not quite sure exactly what to do with this song to bring it closer to home. Much thanks!

C7sus4 xx3311 C7 C7sus4 C7

Nothin' shakin' on Shakedown Street


Am I the only one that thinks this part doesn't sound right? I've tried it on the 3rd fret, the 8th fret, bars, triads- It just sounds wrong The rest of the song is groovy but this part...Maybe Billb could put up a quick video on the chorus?
It all rolls into one and nothing comes for free
There's nothing you can hold for very long
And when you hear that song come crying like the wind
It seems like all this life was just a dream

I am thinking C6 or C 9th but it has been a while.

It isn't just a regular C7 on the 3rd for that part?

I throw the C7sus4 in for one quick beat and sort of hold it before switching back to the C7. I am solely an acoustic player and not looking to replicate exactly what the band did. The C7sus4 gives it that "bump" feeling which of course the song was a parody to begin with. I preface the C7 with a quick C blues lick also. Guess it all depends on what you are trying to achieve.

A parody! I never knew that. Kinda like Al Yankovich?

Well, maybe not in the literal sense like Weird Al but if you harken back to when that album came out, there was a particular style of revolting music that usually required a revolving mirrored ball and 6" platform shoes....

Good instructional video for this on the first Dead DVD Legendary Licks. Check it out.

e---5-----3--10----3---1---0---8--------------7--------5---
b---6-----3--12----5---1---1---8-----10-------8--------6---

I don't do the C7sus4

In looking at jdarks scale citings I was scratching my head a bit...been meaning to sit down with my gitbox and his take to look into it more.

Here's another thread where we had previously had scale discussions on this where I'd laid out my thinking...which is an ever evolving phenomenon. :lol:
