    I'm not entirely convinced that it is possible to polish a turd. However, if one were to accomplish that feat one would still have a turd, and one all the more noticeable for being shiny.

    F A7 Dm F7 Bb Bbm F C7

    or

    2010 0100 2210 2310 3211 3111 2010 0001

    Well gosh it almost is! Huh! Except to knock that out I would replace the Bbm with a C, and then I think you then have A Kind of Hush, Thanks!

    try this progression. stole the chords from a nancy sinatra- bang bang tab. it's really "dark" sounding.

    strum fast but hold the chords longer than usual, so you accentuate the change of chords...sorry i don't know the names. first number is reentrant string

    1013 - 1003 - 1313 - 1213

    repeat

    then you can finish with

    eb to c7

    0331 - 0001


    **special note, best to bar across 1111 with index to pull off that 1313 chord.

    I usually play 'Polly Wolly Doodle' because I can play it fast and it's an old song. It's just F and C7.

    The one I posted in #12 is pretty much a variation of this one. Here's mine again for reference:


    F(2010) A7#5(0110) Dm(2210) Adim?(2320)-(2323) (Bb6maj7?)3230 (C6)5450 F (2010) C7sus4(3533) C7#5(3443)

    Aloha all,
    I would use an intro to "Tea for two" that I learned when I was about 12 years old (I'm 64 now). I don't know the names of the chords, just the finger positions.....learned by watching the neiborhood kids and never learned the chord names. Anyway, it goes like this......
    3535.....4545.....3335.....2325..................2 213.....2323.....0231.....1003
    2..........2.........2..........1.(pause 1 beat)..2..........2..........2..........1........a nd you're done.....
    It sounds cool, and make you look good..........................BO.................. .......
