Calypso chords



(From the album Ivy and the Big Apples) Transcribed by Andrew Loch (email-removed) The previous tabs had the chord progressions wrong and were incomplete because they didn't tab the 2nd riff which I hope I've tabbed correctly. Below, I've transcribed how I think it's played. Listen to the song to see what order it's played in. Riff 1 (played 1st and 3rd times): e---0--------2--------0--------2----- B-----2--------3--------0--------3--- G-2-----2--2-----2--1-----1--2-----2- D------------------------------------ A------------------------------------ E------------------------------------ The above riff is played with pick and the 2nd (middle) and 3rd (ring) fingers such that the pick plays the G string, the 2nd finger the B string and the 3rd finger the e string. Alternatively, you could use just fingers with thumb, index and middle fingers but it makes changing to chords difficult. Chord prog. 1: A5 C5 D5 E5 G-----5-5-7-7-9-9- D-7-7-5-5-7-7-9-9- A-7-7-3-3-5-5-7-7- E-5-5------------- Chord prog. 2: A5 Ab5 Gb5 E5 G----------------- D-7-7-6-6-4-4-2-2- A-7-7-6-6-4-4-2-2- E-5-5-4-4-2-2-0-0- Chord prog. 3: D5 E5 A5 G-7-7-9-9----- D-7-7-9-9-7-7- A-5-5-7-7-7-7- E---------5-5- Riff 2 (played 2nd time): A5 D5 E5 D5 G-----------7-------9-------7----- D---7---------7-------9-------7--- A-----7---5-----5-7-----7-5-----5- E-5-----5------------------------- Whit often doesn't play the above riff live but just strums the chords.
