Thread Name: Does anyone here actually want chords?
Subject: RE: Does anyone here actually want chords?
I think Chico is suffering from the despair that comes from opening a thread with a plaintive"NEED CHORDS DESPERATELY TO" with a story about a wanting to serenade a dying aunt on her birthday or some such, and scrambling to get the chords together in time, posting them, and never getting any acknowledgement at all--

As to your comment Grab, I can only repeat--there may be lots of chords out there for lots of pop stuff, but whether they actually work is another question entirely. You can generally work out chords to folk and traditional tunes by ear with little trouble, unless you are trying to recreate someone elses arrangement, or if the tune is Albanian.
