Album: Notorious (1986) This song uses an A6 to F#m riff at the beginning. Theoretically, they are almost the chord because the notes that comprise them are similar. Therefore, staying on the A6 through the beginning while the bass goes to the F# works as well as switching. Here are the shapes I'd use for the A6 / F#m To say that a different way: You can use the A6 in place of the F#m if you'd like A6 fret 5 - high E pointer 7 - Bstring - pinky 6 - G string - middle 7 - D string - ring 0 X - low E F#m 2 2 2 2 X X For the beginning riff you play the A6 chord and dip it down one fret to play the slide chord. i.e A6...A6...A6...A6-G#6-A6 just slide the whole chord down one fret and back up. to the record, you'll hear the change. to 5 4 7 6 6 5 5 4 X X X X A6 A6 Working on the weekend, baby.

Besides being absolutely painless It's a question of compromise. They got steel. So cool to get angry at the weekend And go back to school. So big deal; it's what rules. When it comes to making money, Say yes, please; thank you. Sometimes you wonder, and ask yourself the question. [CHORUS (Repeated)] I know the answer, but I'm asking you the question.
