Alameda - Either/Or - Elliott Smith

Any questions: robertcox999@hotmail.com

The main chords that are arranged differently to normal -
They are like this so you can get all the melody notes:

   Cmaj7    B7    Am add9  Fmaj7   B7sus4    Am/g   G/b
e|---------------------------0-------0--------0------------|
B|--1-------0-------1--------1-------4--------1------3-----|
G|--4-------2-------4--------2-------2--------2------0-----|
D|--2-------4-------2--------3-------4--------2------0-----|
A|--3-------2-------0----------------2---------------2-----|
E|--------------------------(1)---------------3------------|
                          thumbed

This is a guitar transcription that includes the melody. As a lot of Elliott
Smith’s songs feature lots
of separate guitars and vocals, I tried to make this version contain as much as possible on one
 guitar.

The picking pattern is easier to figure out if you separate it into the bass
notes, which start 3 2 3 2
 on the A and D strings, and the melody which is all the other notes.

Chorus:

         Dm     E       Am   Am/g
For your own protection over their affection

Eb                    Gm
No----body broke your heart

    Cm         F
You broke your own ‘cos you can’t

Bb                   (back to verse)
Finish what you start...
                     (Walk down Alameda...)



Bridge bit:

    C   G   Fmaj7
For one or two

Fmaj7             G  Am
Minutes she liked y--ou

C    G    Fmaj7  G/b   Cmaj7
But  the  fix    is    in
                       (solo section over verse)
