Again, you can also play the riff using standard chord forms:
|---0--0----0--0----2----0--0----2--2----------||---2--2----2--2----3----0--0----3--3----------||---2--2----2--2----2----0--0----2--2----------||---2--2----2--2----0----2--2----0--0----------||---0--0----0--0---------2--2------------------||------------------------0--0------------------|
Outro chorus (w/main riff, gradual fade to backing vocals): She?s waiting for another love She?s waiting for another love (Waiting for another lover) (Hoping for a time that she?ll find another).... ------------------------------------------------------------- PERFORMANCE NOTES: - If you play this song with 2 guitarists, have one play the chords as shown above, and have the other person do some picking around the chord shapes. This helps to spice up the tune and add some layering. You can hear an electric picking the chord shapes on the recording. - During the guitar solo and the outro chorus, the rhythm guitarist should add a few quick extra stabs while playing the G-chord in the main riff (listen to the song to hear exactly what this variation sounds like). - The chords in brackets in verses 2 and 3 are more or less what the bass plays, and they act as transitions between the main chords. You can play these bracketed chords if you like, but it can be a bit tricky to make this fast series of changes. --------------------------------------------------------------- comments, corrections: s_garner@hotmail.com
