Crowded House - "Help Is Coming" :
[from the 'Afterglow' Album]

Chords:
-------

Gm7:   353333
Dm:    557765
Dm/E:  557755
Ebm:   668876
C7:    335353
Gm/Eb: 355343

[nb: instead of C7, could use Dm/E chord as this is easier on fingers]


Notes:
------

It could be useful to use a Capo on the 3rd fret, although not necessary.

The main chord changes go from 'Gm - Dm - C7' throughout the
song for most verses.
When playing solo on the guitar, there are variations on the last third 
that could be played to give a livelier feel:
eg.      Gm - Dm - 'G7 - Gm7 - Dm'  or    
         Gm - Dm - 'Dm/E - Dm - C7'  or even
         Gm - Dm - 'Gm - Gm/E - Dm' [etc.etc]

Furthermore, on the Gm chord throughout the song, you could also add a pattern like
	 Gm - Gm7 - G* - Gm
	rather than strumming the one chord at time
		G* [just bar the 3rd fret]

In the song, Neil just plays the single chord on the guitar whilst the instruments play 
variations giving different harmonics.  The above are ideas when playing solo to provide 
such harmonic variances.
