GUEST,Fullerton Chord Req: Salty dog (12) RE: Chord Req: Salty dog 26 Jul 05


I've been listening to a live version.

The guitar is tuned about 40 cents flat of concert pitch.

The top E string, for instance, is nearer to D# than it is to E.

Basic Chord sequence is .....

E7 .   .   .   |    .    .    .    .    |A   .   .   .   |   .   .   .   .   |

D7 .   .   .   |    .    .    .    .    |G   .   .   .   |   .   .   .   .   |

Play two bars of each chord

Mr. Hurt is, I think, playing these versions of the chords.

The versions of E7 and D7 are very distinctive and have the right kinda sound.


E7 -----x7675x

A-------577655

D7-----x5453x

G------355433


He's adding a kinda melody thing usually on the top string too
Often using...

E9--------x76777

E13------x76799

A7#9----575688    bloooooooooosy! :)

Hope this helps you. Let me know how you get along with it - It is always nice to know this. If you have any problems with it or want to know more..... let me know.
