A different chord progression?

A different chord progression?

Postby Dozin » Sun Feb 16, 2014 7:37 am

What do you guys think?

Is there a F-D-G progression instead of an F-F#-G progression during the "Might as Well" part?

Does anyone play a D note instead of the F#?

I think it's just F-F#-G during those three words of the chorus, at least that's how we play it?

Probably not be what you're asking about, but the F-D-G progression comes during the bridge.

F............D...........G........E.............Am.......Bb.....F....F# G

I've always played it F F# G ( over the three words).

using the D doesn't sound bad though when you use an inversion and put the F# in the bass (piano though)--in fact, maybe that is what they play there?? Not sure now.

Question I've always had with that one is whether those passing (ie C to Bb to F, Eb to D), chords are used during the chorus or not? We decided not to emphasize them in the chorus like we do in the verse.

We do it that same exact way.

I always played it up top around the 3rd position, never thought he would be playing it around the 8th. Learned something today! :cool:

How do you guys play the chorus? We're talking about doing the same thing by hanging in F instead of going to the Eb.

Those passing chords Bb and Eb are clearly being used by Jerry in that video for the chorus.

It's a D7 on the 10th fret, Jerry plays the high side with the inverted shape and drops the Root D on the Low E. Bobby hits the root with the full barre chord.


Might as Well First set closer about 55 minutes in.
