Now Run to You: (see note on key at the end)
The distinctive riff through the verse is:

||-----------------|-----------------||||-----------------|-----------------|| with plenty of reverb (and||-----------------|-----------------|| probably other effects, but||-----0-----0-----|-----0-----0-----|| I ain't got any, so I don't||---2-----2---2---|---2-----4---4---|| know what!)||-0-----0-------0-|-3-----5-------5-||
The transition into the chorus is |C|C|D|D| with appropriate strumming The chorus chords are ||Em G D| A || "" "" "" (this repeats until it finally finishes on the D) The lead bit in the middle of the song is:
||------------|-----|-----------|-----|-----------|-----|-----------|-----||||-9/10-9-----|-----|-7/8-7-----|-----|-5/6-5-----|-----|-7/8-7-----|-----||||--------9---|-----|-------7---|-----|-------5---|-----|-------7---|-----||||----------9-|-----|---------7-|-----|---------5-|-----|---------7-|-----||||------------|-----|-----------|-----|-----------|-----|-----------|-----||||------------|-----|-----------|-----|-----------|-----|-----------|-----||played through twice.
and the chords after this are the chorus chords (I suspect that this bit uses a chorus pedal of some sort - but I don't have one, so I don't know). There is some lead stuff played on top of the riff through the verse, but it's heavy on effects, so we opted to leave it out. As a clue I think it involves slow bends on the G and D strings at the 5th or 7th positions. If you play this along to the CD you will be a tone flat, so either put a capo on the second fret (and shift all the numbers up 2) or tune up a tone - if you're playing with a band you don't need to worry. And that's about if for Run to You. ------------------=============================================------- ~From: Summer of '69 - Bryan Adams The verses are just D A D A ... as many as needed with the change occurring on every second bar. There is an additional two bars of D at the start as well. The way to play it is something like this:
D. . . . . . . .

The Chorus chords are |Bm|A|D|G|Bm|A|D|G|Bm|A| (I use B instead of Bm) use standard open A,D, and G and a barred A shape for B.
The keyboard riff is sort of an arpegiated D and A ie. D A|-0-----2-----3---|---2-----0---2---|-----------------|------------------| |---3-----3-----3-|-----3-----------|-0-----2-----3---|---2-----0----2---||-----2-----2-----|-2-----2---2---2-|---2-----2-----3-|-----2------------||-----------------|-----------------|-----2-----2-----|-2-----2----2---2-||-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|------------------||-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|------------------|
This sounds a bit messy with overdrive, so play it clean, or (even easier) just play the melody part (which is mainly what you hear on the CD anyway)
For the key change after the second chorus, the chords are: |F|Bb|C|Bb|F|Bb|C|C| again use the barred A shape for Bb and C. That's about all for Summer of '69
