David Bowie - Black Tie, White Noise
The Wedding Direct Link: http://www.lovebolts.co.uk/show_user.php?id=307 Transcribed By: Peter I really like this song - a lot of layers on top of a very simple round of chords and a distinctive bass. Basically a D-chord with a Gb basis, an A-chord with an E basis, and a B-chord also with an E basis: |D|D|A|A|B|B|A|A| etc. etc. In the middle of the song, a variant pops up: Bb|Bb|A|A|Bb|Bb|A|A| then back to: |D|D|A|A| etc.etc. I don´t know how to write it properly - perhaps someone else does. =================================================================== =================================================================== You've Been Around Direct Link: http://www.lovebolts.co.uk/show_user.php?id=3 Transcribed By: Emanuele You've Been Around (David Bowie, Reeves Gabrels) Transcribed by Emanuele ------------------------------------------------ [Intro: E pedal] G Where's the pain in the violent night?
