The Other Guy – Little River Band


Someone saw my Tab for Night Owls by LRB and asked if I knew where 'The Other Guy' 
could be found. I looked around but again couldn’t find it, so, unaccustomed as I 
am, I’ve had a bash at interpreting it - especially in view of the title - thought 
I had to have a go.
Hope it seems vaguely close and helps you out!  Happy to have any constructive feedback! 

Tabbed by:   David Guy, Bisley, Surrey, England, UK   (david_guy@hotmail.com)

 
      F      Fc(cut)     D5       Bb       C (*)    C (*alternative)   G
|e----1--------X---------X--------1--------3--------0------------------3|
|B----1--------X---------X--------3--------5--------1------------------0|
|G----2--------2---------2--------3--------5--------0------------------0|
|D----3--------3---------0--------3--------5--------2------------------0|
|A----3--------3---------0--------1--------3--------3------------------2|
|E----1--------X---------X--------1--------3--------X------------------3|

To me, the beginning, that wonderful 2 part driving beat sounds like it’s 
dominated by the bass guitar in the actual version, and so I feel this 3 finger 
plucked Fc D5 is the best interpretation from an acoustic/rhythm guitar. If you’re 
an advanced player, play this then make the tricky change to Bb…....

For mere mortals** – just play F instead of Fc D5. 

(PS – there is no such chord as Fc – I’ve just made that one up. – for the 
purists, it is still technically an F as it has the 1,3 and 5 in it – so to 
distinguish it from the full 6 string strum F, I’ve called it Fc. )

** Or try one of the following:

Put a Capo on Fret 1 and substitute:
E shape for F
A shape for Bb
B shape for C (ie barred on the actual 3rd fret A shape) 
F# shape for G (ie barred on the 3rd fret E shape) 


or easier still, put a capo on Fret 3 and substitute:
D shape for F
G shape for Bb
A shape for C (ie barred on the actual 3rd fret A shape) 
E shape for G (ie barred on the 3rd fret E shape) 





Intro           

Fc Fc D5    Fc Fc D5    Fc Fc D5   Fc Fc D5


Verse:

Fc Fc D5    Fc Fc D5    Fc Fc D5   Fc Fc D5
I found out that you care for another guy

Fc Fc D5    Fc Fc D5    Fc Fc D5   Fc Fc D5
I found out that you want for another smile

Bb                                      (Fc Fc D5)      
We are alone as two different people can be
         C                     Bb
And it's hurting me so just to know
                        Fc Fc D5
That you don't care for me

----------------------------------------------------------------
Chorus:
------
          Bb             
The other guy won't be around to talk to our kids
              F
He won't understand when you're      

down the way that I did
          Bb
We had it all you and I
                     C
We just need to try again

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Fc Fc D5    Fc Fc D5    Fc Fc D5   Fc Fc D5
I found out that your hearts with another guy

Fc Fc D5    Fc Fc D5    Fc Fc D5   Fc Fc D5
You found out that you're telling another lie

Bb
We've come apart

We're going our own separate ways
        C
And you don't understand why I love you
    Bb          F
And want you to stay...


Chorus

          Bb
You don't know it's me that you need
                   F
You're thinkin' of him and I can't compete
     G                                       C
But  I'm here to stay, I still want you back again


Chorus (3x)

That's not Dc - It's Dm.

F / Dm x4 is the riff.

Barre cords work well.
