i can do

 

little island walking

halfway to a threeway

therefore i am

good times

 

just give me some time (and when i say some i may actually mean lot)

 

GOOD TIMES
(the song in the cd is slowed down so if you want to play along with it you must tune down your guitar 1/4step )
this is the basic pattern repeated through the whole song, jim does little variations of it in some parts

I may be dressed as a doctor dear,
					 (A)
But I’m not, I’m just acting up
Got high hopes, a passing thought


I may act like a bombardier
					  (B)
But don’t be fooled, cause my aim is off
No need for alarm, I’ll catch you next time


   (C)
SLIDE GUITAR SOLO 


I’d like to raise the Titanic here
					   (A)
Take a walk, through it’s molding streets
And feel right at home, ’cause the dead don’t talk


It’d be so nice, if you weren’t here
						(B)
Empty air, where you used to stand
Like an empty plate, that gets bussed away 

(C)
OUTRO

 

HALFWAY TO A THREEWAY
(Capo on 1st)

again, these are the basic patterns, the song is filled with variations of them

e -0-----0-----2-----2-----3-----3-----3----------



(A)
I used to have none
Now with you, I’ve got one
If I could get just one more
Then you know what you’re in for

(B)
You ain’t getting any sleep tonight
I hope that you girls don’t fight
And I hope that you won’t run away
’Cause I’m halfway to a threeway

(A)
I tried again and again
To indulge in just one sin
All you have to do is lie there
While I push aside your wheelchair

i reckon jim plays nearly everything in open g. theres a video of a guy playing the workplace on an acoustic and its spot on...not mention quite tricky.

 

the workplace

 

and the start of a very tentative tab for good times, along the lines that everything jim does is by and large in open g, except (off the top of my head) little island walking is in CGDGCD (which Sonic Youth used also whilst Jim was in teh band, though I don't know if there's a connection, as Pavement used something similar too)

 

 

Good Times

i look forward to trying this. i had worked out much of the song in CGDGCD, but found it some small parts quite awkward so maybe its not right.
