Highlighted Show chord diagrams
This is how I play Six Bells Chime from the legendary Room of Lights album. (Otherwise known as the Wings of Desire song). This song follows a basic blues progression. Chords: Em | Am7| B7 Em Riff: e-------------| B-------------| G-------------| D--------2----| A------2------| E-0--3--------| After Riff, play Am7 (with open E (6th) string. As if playing Em-shape with the G and B strings.) Play Riff, then back to Em Play Riff, then play Am7 Play Riff, Em Repeat this up until after "Six Bells, they chime…" Play B7 This next part I am unsure of, but it is a pentatonic-minor scale. (I assume Em) Play Em chord. "You will sleep sound…" B7, then arrpegiate the 3rd, 2nd, and 1st strings of B7; back again Play Em chord. "You're seventeen…" B7. "You're seventeen at this time…" Repeat Riff, Em, Am7 (after Am7, you will play the B string: B--0-2-0----- You repeat all over again. To get Rowland's sound, crank your reverb and use your tremolo. I play this song with my guitar's bridge pickup, Alexander Hacke also played this song with his guitar in the bridge pickup. It was a tele style guitar with a hum bucker in the bridge, and mine is a LP-style guitar with dual hum buckers. It might not make a difference for you, but it does to me.
