Song title: Bye Bye Love
Performed by: Simon and Garfunkel
Album: Bridge Over Troubled Water
Chords interpreted by: Hans Julian Sloman
Sound available on YouTube /watch?v=d0gLnfSgdLA
The song seems to be using only the chords B, F# and C# (and E5 in the intro);
however there are multiple ways of creating those sounds.
Another version available on here tells you to play
A, E, and B, (and D5) while using a capo in 2nd fret.
However getting from E to B can be awkward for beginners,
so here's a version that I came up with that might make it
easier for you, while still being able to play along with the song
(e.g. not in a different key):
Capo 7th fret
INTRO: C A5 F F A5 C
C G CI think I'm gonna cry.
F CBye bye, sweet caress.
C G CI feel like I could die.
C G CBye bye, my love, goodbye.
C GI'm through with romance.
G CI'm through with love.
C GI'm through with counting
(repeat and fade) Goodbye, my love goodbye.
(some more notes:
-7th fret is quite far up for a capo, so it only works on good acoustics or
-play A5 simply like a normal A except you only hit the A, D and G string/or
you can mute the B string.
-If you don't care for playing/singing along with the record, there are lots
of easy variations available (e.g. Transposing, with change of key).
For example you could play C, G, and D; or D, A, and E; or you can play the
version described here without a capo.
