in not-so-brief, its like this.......


This song isn't on a studio album, so I'm gonna assume you've never heard
it and try to get across how to play it just using this tab......

The song's quite bright in terms of tempo and mood. It's 4/4 timing at
124 beats per minute. There's a bit of a Joan Armatrading 1975/6
influence here...(try the 'Back to the Night' album).

Overall, its an upbeat strummed guitar played over a bongo rhythm track.
The actual rhythm of the drum part isn't a million miles from
"Occasionally", but slightly faster (Occasionally is 119 bpm) and played
on a drum :>)


There are three sections to the guitar part- this first one makes up most
of the song....

First, get something that clicks 124 times a minute (or at least at a
steady rhythm)...this tab won't make much sense without following the
timing pretty close...

then, get the feel for the basic rhythm by playing this over and over
(using barred E shapes).....

Cut the bass notes short (at the ".") to give a funky(?) feel

In the last bar, delay the strums at the end to create an expectation for
the Db in the next bar


Once you've gotten that into your head...fill it out a bit by playing the
same thing but *also* hitting the string each side of the one you were
picking before......like this....

    C#                 A#m             F#              G#

then, spice that up by sliding between the bass notes, synchopating a
bit, chucking in some extra strumming and generally putting some
expression into it...then call this [part 1].


Right, now you've got the intro, most of the chorus and half the verse
sorted out.... here's the vocal....

just play [part1] over and over and sing this.....

If you already know the song, here's the standard, .crd version

     C#                   A#m
my friends    they're so worried (ooh) they say
 F#                       G#
girl there's something    definately wrong   (no no)

         C#                   A#m
it aint natural    to go from one to a-nother
 F#                 G#
lover to lover     moving a-long

           F#
they dont know

G#                                   G#
 it takes ten of their kisses    to make  one of yours
 ten times baby                     oh to feel a lot like

C#                   A#m
you and they kiss me   and they touch me
F#                 G#
  say they want me, yeah they feel a lot like

C#                   A#m
you and they hold me   and they tell me
F#                 G#
  say they love me, baby they feel a lot like

C#                   A#m

G#                                 G#

G#                G#
  ten times baby ooh they feel a lot like

C#      A#m    F#   G#
you

[chorus]

[verse 2]:
   C#                        A#m
I guess I could say I don't know right from wrong
          F#                         G#
when the truth is that I just don't care

           C#        A#m
since you left me I got to get  back
         F#             G#
to that feeling    somehow somewhere

   C#                                             A#m
a little bit here and a little bit there well it helps to take away
         F#             G#
this emptiness    that burns deep inside

          C#                      A#m
ooo   I think if I gather enough pieces
       F#               G#
I can put together     some kind of pride

         F#
I dont know

[chorus]

[3 lines of [part1] with ad-lib chorus vocals]

[outro]:

G#                       C#     A#m          F#        G#
Sometimes if I close my eyes       close my eyes, baby

I feel a lot like you

I'd appreciate any comments on this presentation.....I'll probably do a
few more of the unreleased songs, but (for example), if everyone's
already got the tapes, I could save on a load of keying in time.....
