I thought I'd start putting up some charts to songs from Warren's solo record...I saw a video of River's Gonna Rise and thought I'd start with the chords to this.

Rivers Gonna Rise

Intro: Gm

Verse (repeat through progression with different ending, first part is the same):

"Chain's of oppression"
| Eb>Bb | Bb | Bb >F | F |

1) "We don't need to be rich"
| C- | F | G- | G- |

2) "But a day will come"
| D | D | G- | G- |

Pre-Chorus:

"Time will remind us"
| Eb | Eb | C | C |
| Eb | Eb | C- | D |



Chorus: "River's gonna rise....."

| G- | G- | G- | G- |
| Eb | C- | D | G- |

Bridge (after 2nd chorus):
| Eb | Eb | C | C | Eb | Eb | C- | D |


Some structure is something like
Verse, Chorus, Verse, Chorus, Bridge, Chorus, and I think the Allmans play the turnaround at the beginning as well.

Any questions? I have Sick of my Shadow figured out as well....all pretty simple tunes, hopefully more people can add on.

All right ... help! I was working on "Everyday Will Be Like A Holiday." It's pretty straightforward.

Chorus is: (B) Everyday will be like a (F#) holiday. When my (E) Baby
My baby comes (B) (A)

However the figgin' verse is drivin me crazy. It's B F# then I'm hearin' a G bass note. But for the life of me can't harmonize the rest of the chord. Or the next chord before the E then back to the B. Can somebody help??? The song then modulates the chorus up to D with the outro over D & C. Great tune and I'm probably making it harder than it is, but I'm starting to get frustrated.

Hey, hope you're having a great holiday weekend....

I'll give it a shot later tonight....as long as I come back from this BBQ and am able to mentally, LOL.

Sometimes Warren can trick you with chords, I can't tell you how many Gov't Mule tunes that I know all the way through except for a certain chord voicing...I always try to get up close when he's around to snag some voicings/licks, haha.

All right and right you are Slow. I pulled up Warren doing "Everyday Will Be Like A Holiday" and was able to ascertain what he was doing. The verse is B (7th fret) F# (2nd fret) D#7 (6th fret the G note is the 3rd in the chord and what the bass is playing) followed by G#m (4th fret) E. Great song and Warren does a great job with it.

Charlesinator, I hear it as a Gdim chord, Warren uses it quite a bit in blues progressions.

To tab it out (you can add G in the bass if you want or switch the octave to a bass note):

---3--
---2--
---3--
---2--
---x--
---x--

So the verse as I hear it,

Everyday Is A Holiday

| B | F# | Gdim | G#m E |


Try it w/ the Gdim chord, sounds pretty spot on to me.

Man In Motion

Intro: D E 2x
Esus E D E G F# (all held for 2 beats except the G and F#, which are 4)

Use these fingerings:
D - xx777x
E - xx999x
Esus - xx9910x

Blues Lick (Over G > F#)

e---------------------------------------------
b----------3--------------2------------------
G-----/4-----------/3------------------------


Rock Riff:

e---------------------------------------------
b---------------------------------------------
G-----------7/9/7------------9/11/9------
D-----------7/9/7------------9/11/9-------
A---7--9-------------9--11------------------
E---------------------------------------------


Verse: Esus E *use above fingerings
then goes to an A7 played xx1414141415...I know that's hard to read, just picture xx2223 (A7) and octave up in 14th position. You can also substitute Asus and A like the beginning of the verse also played in 14th position but w/ the same fingerings as the Esus and E. Warren switches it up live...

Verse Bassline: Something like this

G-------------------------------------------------------------------------- -----
D-------------------------------------------------------------------------- -----
A------------7--7------------7-9-7----------7---7-------------------------- --
E-----7--9----------7---9-----------7---9---------------------------------- --


Chorus (What do you expect a boy to do...): Esus E D E *use above fingerings

(Proceed with caution) G F#


Intro > Rock Riff
V C (break) V C (riff)
Solo (over D then modulates to A)
V C
Jam in E

Slow I checked his fingering from a youtube video. It sure looks like D#7. I haven't got the time to check right now. I'm supposed to be cutting grass and cleaning the house. Lol! But anyway we're argueing over just one note whether it's a D# or and E. The only difference between the two chords. I'll get back with you after housework.

Slow, I feel pretty sure it's D#7.

My ear is still telling me Gdim. When I play a D#7 over the track it doesn't seem to be all the way there. The high G in the chord voicing is giving it away..I noticed they (ABB and Warren) like to add the diminished chord usually raised up from the 4th or 5th. They do it in Get On With Your Life, Need Your Love So Bad, High Cost Of Low Living, some others.

Agree to disagree?

Thanks Slowhand for the Sick of my Shadow chords. This is a great thread.

Just got myself a new LP Studio 60's goldtop with P-90's. Sounds pretty awesome. I was not looking for it, it just found me. Quite an impressive little axe.

Thanks again!
