Misc Television - Bbc News 24 - Countdown chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Here are the chords to the brilliant theme to BBC News 24 as per this
YouTube video.

Before the chords, a few notes on other parts of the song:
- The beeps are always a Bb, regardless of the chord, they go up an octave or two near
end, this will be indicated later on.
- The bass stays on a constant Bb until a certain point which will also be indicated.
- I haven't figured out the strings part, although I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to do
they'll generally fit around the chords and the note Bb.

I'll not do this by bars or standard music timing, but by the time remaining on the
on the video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2KCO0OKfrI) I worked this out from. If you
want to watch the video, I'm sure it would be easier enough to hear where it changes by 
or by counting.

A thousand apologies if the chords are difficult to change to on a guitar, as I figured
out mostly on a bass, a keyboard and a ukulele and generally have no knowledge of guitar chords.

Right, the countdown starts at 90, and the first chord (which comes a second before 90) is:

91 Bbm

This goes on for a while until you reach the next progression:

46 Bbm
42 Eb
38 Bbm
34 Eb

Following these are two more chords:

30 Bbm
26 Fm (bass begins to follow chords here, rather than sticking to Bb)

Then a brief repetition of two chords:

22 Gb
18 Eb
14 Gb
10 Eb (at this point, the beeps go up in pitch by an octave or two, just play what
right)

Then, you finish off with a pleasant and resolving:

6  Bb (note that this IS Bb, not Bbm as in the rest of the song)

Righty-ho, that should be everything.
