I think they mean it isn't really a "song" without singing. It would be called a "tune" here on the Cafe. The chords are (Dm9/// G/// Cmaj7/// Am7/// Dm9/// G7sus4/// Cmaj7/// A7sus4/ Am7/) and...
Well, here's my results. Scroll to the bottom and click on the chords link.
I googled the artist and song title.
Yes, though there is more to it than that. There are two sections that go G Am Bm C as I hear it. Some of the chords are fancy and suspensions and such. There are tabs for this one (electric...
It seems like the confusion was because the "F#" chord was called F#dim when it in fact is a dim7. In fact, all 4 note diminished chords (not m7b5's, which are half-diminished) are diminished 7ths....
Sounds like D/D/DU/DU/ within the bar, to me. It varies according to the players feeling at the time, but I am pretty sure the "intro" goes like that.
What kind of mandolin do you have and what type of bridge is on it? You may have to compromise and live with it, or you may possibly be able to reshape the bridge saddles to throw the E strings...
Yes. Cm pentatonic is more like the blues scale in C. I do not mean to use the relative minor, I would play the C minor pentatonic scale for the song the OP requested because it uses the bluesy notes...
The 4 finger D chop we are talking about is 7452, low to high. I do hold the 245x, again, low to high, D with my pinky. I also play the 5301 F as a chop chord all the time. BG Police who ban open...
Santiago, I found the tab you are using. I suggest almost any of the others, this one is not accurate.
2003 is a Dsus, so it's really easy just to hammer on to 2003 from 2002. There's no Am in the tune.
A "basic" Dsus? Open strumming-wise, like I would think you'd want to do "Freebird," just play 2003 for your Dsus, however, try a C instead of an Am between the F and the Dsus.
I hate the 4 finger D and I refuse to use it. As a V chord in G I play 245X, as a I chord, I play 745X. That doubled third with no 5th sounds horrible to me.
Use code tags to align chords with words. Also in Gm, the chords would be called Bb and Eb. I added a D over "memory" in the first verse.

I'd use Cm Pent for that song in the key of C.
I think I tried to do that without my mandolin in my hands. I was going by what some of the previous poster had said, Bb/B sounds like Bmaj7 and I just went down a half step from the Bb. Of course...
The second "here lies" is over a Dm chord (Bm position capoed 3) and the last time they hit a Dbdim before the Dm (x1202x, capoed 3.)
Bb/B = 2011
Bb/Ab = 1011
C/Bb = 323x
A/G = 0245
Gm6 or Em7b5 = 0010 or 3073 or 9853
Well, by now everybody here may know that I think the best mandolin pick ever is the Dunlop Ultex 1.14 rounded triangle (346 shape.) The Blue Chip is as good a sounding pick, but no better in my...
I got one of each Fiber Plecs and they are pretty much useless for mandolin as far as I'm concerned. All of them are way too bright and have too much pick noise. The heaviest (1.0mm) one is okay for...
What style are you doing it in? For normal CCM I'd go with two-finer (open) chords for a nice ringing sound.
@garthh: Two-finger chords are four-note chords. Don't confuse them with double stops.
I like it in theory, but they hurt my shoulder. They cut into my skin because they're so skinny, even though the mandolin is pretty light.
Hey, bassman, you should know that Paul strapped his Hofner bass like that. The Hofner bass strap they sell is made to go around the body under the neck riser.
