Hey 3axes, good chat the other night...well for your song, i got the rhythm ok and i tried the walk down a few ways...overall i like what you have so far but like you, i know something is missing...so for starters i tossed in 5th string b  note on the way to the Am chord. Maybe someone like Dean or Bray will come up with something to add. Prolly another chord by the feel of it.

Does "D held for 4 beats" mean strum once and let ring on the way to the walk down?

Cheers,

GuitarZen

GZ- I figured out a name for the song- It's not you it's me...How does this sound to you the song shape is: ( beat is 1 2 3+4 )


A shape: G Em 4X

B shape:  C Am 4X

walk down d c ba ge ( 1 2 3+4+) 1X

REAPEAT: then go to C shape

C shape: G Am C D 1X

REPEAT the whole thing : C shape 2X: fine






Using the down down down up down : rthyem  or 1 2 3+4 beat


Let me know what you think

Oh, good name for a song 3axes...

You know something about chords that i may have forgotten...would it be much trouble to show the
fingering for all the chords below?  As an example, could you write them out like X 0 2 2 2 0  ? Thanks,
i have a feeling i'm going to learn something here beacause i'm not sure what you mean about some
of the chords, but hey, it's just me...!
