This rendition of "Heart Attack" is based on the "Official Video" from VEVO that I 
watched, which is
currently available on YouTube. I have been educated in music theory and ear 
training. I thought it might
be fun to apply my skills to pop music. This is one of many songs I've analyzed.

I would firstly like to point out the Cm7 chord and Fm/Bb. Just in case you didn't 
know already, Fm/Bb
simply means that you play all of the notes of an F minor chord, and you add a B 
flat as the bass note. I
carefully listened to song, and Cm7 seems to be a more appropriate match for the 
chord played in the Intro
and Background Lick. I suppose it could be substituted with an Eb chord to be 
consistent. However, the
notes played in both of those parts are C, Eb, G, and Bb, and those are the notes 
that make up a Cm7 chord.


W = Whole Note
H = Half Note
Q = Quarter Note
E = Eighth Note
S = Sixteenth Note
() = Optional Note in Parentheses

This is something I uploaded just before I remembered that I had an account on here. I did it in a hurry to get it done, so I made a mistake in the intro and the background lick. The notes played during the Fm part should be on frets 13, 12, 10 on the G string and fret 10 on the D string. I accidentally copied the Db part and forgot to change the 11 to a 10. Other than that, I think it is pretty accurate. Thanks.
