Mansun -"being a girl (part 1)"
From "Six"
Transcription by Ben Hollis

This file is all my own work

(It wasn`t that hard)

Though not essential, using dropped D
tuning will make this easier
Play it all on the two lowest strings
(six strings - pah)

(even non-guitar players can do this -
try putting stickers on your guitar
to show them which frets to use)

It`s all fifth chords and the bassline
is identical
If you`re using Drop D the chords are
G#5 = 6th fret or 666xxx
E5 = 2nd fret or 222xxx
B5 = 9th fret or 999xxx
C#5 = 11th fret or 111xxx
F#5 = 4th fret or 444xxx

Intro + Verse
G#5     E5    B5    C#5  (a few times)

To do the sound of the guitar 'dropping'
in simply start this pattern with a single beat
of C#5

E5               G#5
E5               G#5
C#5             E5  F#5
Yeah, oh, ......

Keyboard Solo
(I may post a guitar version
of this later, if you have the
"Six" single there is a live
version that is on guitar
and easy-ish to work out,
otherwise its a solo; play
what you like)

Verse + Chorus Again

Verse (variation)
G#5   E5    B5   C#5
G#5   E5



(Warning, if your band plays this
and you have a girl singer, it may
end up sounding like a Shania
Twain song)
