I'm Not The Same Without You - Donald Fagen
--------------------------------------------

From the album "Sunken Condos"

Transcribed/arranged by Howard Wright
hakwright (at) gmail (dot) com


This wonderfully lively track from Donald Fagen's new album
works nicely on the guitar, and the chord shapes and changes 
are all fairly comfortable. The main exception is the
sequence with the crisp changes between Dm9 and G7 in the
verse/bridge sections - they're just a bit too quick to manage
easily. If the bass notes are dropped from the chords the fast
changes for that sequence are much more straight forward.

All chord shapes given at the end.


Intro
------

F#m11  Dsus2/F   Em11   Dadd2



Verse 1
--------

Am7                       G7         C7       
Since you’ve been gone an awesome change has come about

           Bbmaj7(b5)    E7sus4           Ab/Bb   G/A
My life is different now  I’m not the same without you


    Am7            G7        C7    
I’m evolving at a really astounding rate of speed


                   Bbmaj7(b5)  E7sus4               Ab/Bb G/A
Into something way cooler       than what I was before



Verse 2
--------

Am7                  G7     C7    
I feel much stronger than I have in years


           Bbmaj7(b5)  E7sus4     Ab/Bb G/A
My mind is sharp        and my spirit’s  sound


Am7                    G7          C7    
Now people tell me the shape of my face is changing

                   Bbmaj7(b5)        E7sus4                Ab/Bb  G/A
I’ve grown an inch taller since July  What in the world is going on? 


Please tell me

Some other destiny

        Baug     Em11     A7b5     Dm11          G7sus4 G7 Cmaj7 Fmaj7 D/E
A futurescape of bright arcades in which I bring  off   heroic   escapades

I can see into everybody’s heart   and everybody’s dreams girl


Am7                        G7        C7 
I don’t need sleep anymore  but if I close my eyes

I'd sleep the sleep of the gods

Chord shapes
-------------

EADGBE      EADGBE      EADGBE      EADGBE 
2xx200      1xx230      x7x785      xx0975

F#m11       Dsus2/F      Em11       Dadd2



EADGBE      EADGBE      EADGBE      EADGBE      EADGBE      
5x555x      3x343x      x3535x      6x775x      0x775x

 Am7          G7          C7       Bbmaj7(b5)   E7sus4


Substituting a C9 shape (x32333) in place of some of the C7 shapes works 
well and gives some variety. You can also try the idea below, taken from 
some of the piano figures used, where the note on the B string is "rolled"
up from D to D# to E (use hammer-ons with 2nd and 4th fingers).

E---------|
B--3h4h5--|
G--3------|
D--5------|
A--3------|
E---------|

You might also want to try using a fuller shape for the E7sus4: 077700.

When the Bbmaj7(b5) chord is used the b5 (the top E) isn't always prominent
(hence the brackets), though it is usually implied. You can either play the
full chord with the E or omit it (giving a sparser sounding Bmaj7: 6x77xx)


EADGBE      EADGBE      
6x654x      5x543x

 Ab/Bb       G/A



EADGBE      EADGBE      EADGBE      E  A  D  G  B  E      
x5777x      x3555x      x8x887      x  7  9  7  10 7

  D           C       F9b5(no3rd)      E7sus4(vii) 

The F9b5(no3rd) chord, as played on the keyboards, includes a D at the top 
making it F13b5(no3rd). Unfortunately this chord doesn't fit nicely on the 
guitar, so the simpler F9 shape has to be used.


EADGBE       E  A  D  G  B  E       EADGBE      EADGBE
x79797       x  8  10 9  10 8       xx9887      x0564x      

E7(vii)        Fmaj7(viii)           Baug        A7b5        



EADGBE      EADGBE      EADGBE      EADGBE      EADGBE
xx0563      3x353x      x3545x      1x221x      07x775

 Dm11       G7sus4      Cmaj7       Fmaj7        D/E



EADGBE      EADGBE      EADGBE      EADGBE 
x5355x      13124x      02013x      02010x

 Dm9          F7          E7          E7*


For a sparser sound on the F7 and E7 shapes (which I prefer) 
mute the A string and use shapes 1x124x, 0x013x and 0x010x
