Michelle chords

Postby Thomas » Thu Aug 15, 2002 9:54 am

Hi everybody.

Who can help me? I'm wondering how Paul plays Michelle with the capo on the 5th fret like he does on the album/video "Paul is Live". I can't work it out.

Thanks,

Have you tried a few tab sites? There are plenty that will show you how to play the songs the exact way the performer does.

Oh yeah. Harmony Central can suck sometimes. Sometimes they're ok though. Depends on the song.

I play it with a capo on the 8th fret. I'll try it with a capo on the 5th some time.

Perhaps he tunes his guitar differently, like on Yesterday and Blackbird on Wings Over America (drops a whole note)?

I thought he did it with the capo on the 5th. same as Hope of deliverance and that one is in normal tuning.

capo 8th fret:

----0---0---0---0---0-----
----1---1---1---1---1-----
--2---1---0---------------
--------------4---3-------
--------------------------
--------------------------

with a capo on the 5th fret that would be:
----3---3---3---3---3-----
----4---4---4---4---4-----
--5---4---3---2---1-------
--------------------------
--------------------------
--------------------------

chords:

Michelle, ma belle, these are words that go together well, my Michelle
8th:A Dm7 G F#dim E D#dim E
5th:C Fm7 Bb Adim G
F#dim G


I love you, I love you, I love you, that's all I want to say
8th: Am C7/4 F
5th: Cm D#7/4 G#

Until I find a way
8th:E7/4 Am
5th:G7/4 Cm

Hope that helps you

Boy, is this meaningless to me or what! Me being a keyboard person, and all that . . . still, I'm getting there in terms of learning Help - the trouble is singing the line "and I do apreciate you being round" - I seem to do it wrong a lot when playing the keyboard at the same time - AARGH!

The difference between genius and insanity is merely the difference between success and failure.
