Probably I will fail one more time but I have to try it... one of these days...

Could be a G6 chord? [320000]

It is indeed a G6 chord Nuno, although that's not the voicing I'm using - not sure of the rules of this game, are we supposed to get the correct fingering, as well as getting the chord right? I suggest for now we consider that yes, you're right, and it's your turn, and ask for a ruling from Rod for future reference - Rod, do you need the chord AND the tab of the chord correct (ie the correct voicing) or just the chord name?

The voicing I used was 355030 - and the two songs I referred to are "All Right Now" by Free (that uses xx5030, I think) which was tabbed out by Wes, and "Band On The Run" by Paul McCartney, which uses the standard 320000, tabbed out by, er, ME!

So take it away Nuno - your turn!

:D :D :D

Spooky!

I nearly put up "G6" for my turn at this game Vic instead of "Cadd9" and I was going to use Nuno's fret pattern.

If I am not mistaken "G6" is also the last chord played on The Beatles "She Loves You" isn't it Vic?

Been a long time since I played that, but I think you're right - I know it's a 6th chord anyway. Sir George Martin once described it as a "curious singing chord, a major 6th with George playing the sixth and the other two playing the 3rd and 5th." He went on to describe it as "almost a Glenn Miller arrangement"......

:D :D :D

Incredible! :shock:

Ok, it is a very easy chord but it is one of me favorites. I like its sound in all kind of instruments. It is in a lot of songs and basic progressions:

Nuno, thats gotta be "Am" if I'm not mistaken. Which I probably am :wink:

As for the rules. Well It could get very tricky if we decide to get the correct voicings, so I will leave it up to the poster of each chord. if you want the tab to be correct you must state so in your posting

Thanks Nuno,

Here for the next http://rodders.dmusic.com/ Guess the chord 4

This chord was the end of The Beatles career in the recording of singles. A really sweet sounding chord

Got it in one Vic.

I think this was the last chord ever recorded by the Beatles. On "The Ballad of John & Yoko" as the song ends with this. Certainly the last single ever recorded by them as a group. Although not the last single to be released.

Your turn again Vic. :wink:

Just to be pedantic - TBOJ&Y WASN'T recorded as a group - Ringo was away filming "The Magic Christian" and George was house-hunting....John sang lead and harmony vocals, played rhythm and acoustic guitars. Paul played bass and drums and sang harmony vocals.....

OK here we go again.....

http://www.soundclick.com/bands/pagemus ... dID=225059 - file is guess that chord......

This one shouldn't be too hard - an extended chord played in open position. There's a bit of "Spot The Riff" in there as well where the chord is picked.....

:D :D :D

Not hard that one Vic, know it well and the riff which kinda gives it away.

I'll hold off for a while and let someone else have a go :wink:

I'm going to guess it's an E7 chord, and the riff is from CCR - Born on the Bayou?

That was the route I would have chosen too Dan.
E7

OOOPS, sorry, wasn't watching....

Right on both counts Dan....

I was actually playing the chord as 022130, and just picking it for the CCR riff.

OK Dan - you're up!

:D :D :D
