But, you ask, what about Gleemer?  Well, here's my try:

It starts with G3 C3 D5 (all barre, the numbers are the frets for the

barre, DON'T play a D fifth).  Then it goes to the verses:

        G G* Em C

  This G* is just a G with an F# (2nd fret, E string) in the bass, but I

can't play it with my thumb, so I hire a bassist.  The chorus is the same,

and to get from the verses to the chorus, after the C go D C G and into the

chorus.  I realize this probably makes little, if any, sense, but listen to

the album and you can probably figure it out (I actually got some help from

the Bevil Web version).  I worked up a punk version of this with

powerchords, but it sounds really cheesy as a punk song, so don't try it at


From Dougie:

Actually on Gleemer, I would like to add the following....

INTRO: Cmajor9 with suspension....ok make a G move your 1st and


       fingers down one (ie your 2nd finger which is on 2nd fret/5th string...

       move it down to 2nd fret 4th string....OK?)

Song: I play the following G Bm Em D

      Then when "The higher clouds" I play:  G G/F#M Em C

      Then when Toby sings "Could this be...": G C D

End Riff: String:6 6 6 6 6 6 5 5 5 5 5

          Fret  :0 0 2 2 3 3 3 3 2 2 0

	Try this riff anyway you would could add String 6 Fret 4

        instead of using S:6 and start with S:6 F:2
