Greg Lake: C¥est La Vie
-----------------------


From:                      Emerson, Lake & Palmer: Works


Transcription by:            Christian Streicher
	                     info@c-streicher.de
	                     Bergkirchen/Germany, December 1998


Credits:      Sami Saarnio for his Freeware version of Nutchords


Tuning:	EADGBE  (Standart)

Comments:     Play on a 6-String Guitar with Plectrum (Pic)
	      Single tick every string, do not play chords
	      Vary the rythm with the Lyrics and allow the strings
	      to tune out into the beginning of the next verse
	      (Sounds more complicated that it really is, just try )


Chords:       Emadd9            074000
	      D                 xx0232
	      G6-5sus           332010
	      F#                244322
	      B7                x24242
	      Am                x02210

*** 2nd Verse:

(Chords are same as 1st Verse)

Like a song, Out of tune and out of time
All I needed was a rhyme for you, C¥est la vie

Do you give, Do you live from day to day
Is there no song I can play for you, C¥est la vie


*** Refrain (repeat)


*** Ending: Finish with a flashiolett at 12th B & E

that sounds pretty good but if I refer to the song some of the chords are'nt right. But this song is very complicated and I tried to find the right chords but I can't. So, I must say : nice job anyway :p
