Steely Dan – Brooklyn tab
This is to expand upon the work of the first tabber. Some have complained that it's to read and I'm putting it in the usual UG format with chord diagrams: Intro: C11 F Am7 D C11 F C Fmaj7 Em7 Dm7 C A race of angels bound with one another FMaj7 Em7 Dm7 G A dish of dollars laid out for all to see Em7 G9 C Am7 A tower room at Eden Rock, his golf at noon for free C11 F Am7 D Brooklyn owes the charmer under me C11 F C Brooklyn owes the charmer under me Fmaj7 Em7 Dm7 C His lady's aching to bring a body down Fmaj7 Em7 Dm7 G She daily preaches on where she wants to be Em7 G9 C Am7 An evening with a movie queen, a face we all have seen C11 F Am7 D Brooklyn owes the charmer under me C11 F C Brooklyn owes the charmer under me Fmaj7 Em7 Dm7 C A case of aces done up loose for dealing Fmaj7 Em7 Dm7 G A piece of island coolin' in the sea Em7 G9 C Bb Am7 The whole of time we gain or lose, and power enough to choose C11 F Am7 D Brooklyn owes the charmer under me C11 F C Brooklyn owes the charmer under me Chord Diagrams: C11 - x33333 F - 133211 Am7 - 002010 C - x32010 Fmaj7 - 133210 Em7 - 022033 Dm7 -x00211 G - 320033 G9 - 3x0201 Bb - x13331 This is how I play it--maybe not exactly how it sounds on the original recording, but darn close. I find it difficult to play Bb so I sometimes use the fifth and when I'm adventurous I use Bb13 (x20233). A flashy technique I also like is to bar the C11 chord your thumb then quckly jump back to the barred F chord during he chorus. Listen to the over and over and you'll get the rhythm. I play it a little more uptempo than the Dan.
