Why Doesn't Andy? chords

The Whitlams


This song will be familiar to anyone who knows the Whitlams' older song "10 or 11 Drink Clown." This song was transcribed on guitar, so in the verses, it's not wholly accurate: Tim's piano right hand plays the below chords while his left hand plays syncopated lead-in notes to the root of the chord. I'll show the chords as chord name/bass note eg Eb/G is an Eb triad over a G bass note. Easy for pianists, shocking for guitarists, so guitarists, short of changing to a dropped tuning to enable the fingering to work, just play the triad not the root note eg in the above example just play Eb - ie follow Tim's right hand. Pianists, each chord has a lead in note on the off-beat before it starts, usually an F or Eb below the chord... I hope that makes sense! Eb/G Fm/Ab I go to parties Ab Bb Head straight to the bathroom Eb/G Fm/Ab Sit there for half an hour Ab Bb Listen to the queue forming Eb Fm Ab Bb I Listen to the queue forming Eb/G Fm/Ab I rise to meet them Ab Bb Steeled for action Eb/G Fm/Ab but the women are empowered Ab Bb with a strange and brutal hatred for me Cm Eb Why doesnt Andy talk on stage? Ab Fm Ab Why doesn't Andy act his age? Cm Eb Why are the birds all in my dreams? Fm Ab Why won't Stevie listen to me? Repeat to end. -- |||||||| | ^ ^ | (| * * |) -----------oOOo---(__)---oOOo---------- Daniel Meijer - Sydney, Australia. email-removed http://www.zip.com.au/~dm/ ----------------------------------------
