Artist Of The Week (3-1-93)


The Replacements

This was originally posted by Francois Rousseau last week.  Merci.


Skyway

Tricky fingerpicking:

To get the feeling try playing the D chord and alternate the way you
play the last string between the 2nd fret (as in a D) and the open
string (D9). Do the same with the GM7 chord (alternate on the little
string between the second fret and the open string). I fingerpick the
whole song and it sounds ok.

For the D: easy to play for everybody...

1 E: 2  (alternate with open string (e))
2 B: 3
3 G: 2
4 D: 0
5 A: 0
6 E: X


For the GM7: hard to play for beginners...

1 E: 2  (alternate with open string (e))
2 B: 0
3 G: 0
4 D: 0
5 A: 2
6 E: 3

                         Skyway
                   (The Replacements)

Capo 3rd fret
intro: D GM7 D GM7

               D
You take the Skyway
GM7                         D
High above the busy little one way
         GM7                            Em
In my stupid automn gloves at night a lie awake
                     A7
Wanderin' if I'll sleep
  Em                                A7
Wanderin' if we'll meet out in the street
              D
To take the Skyway

GM7                           D
It don't move at all like a subway
          GM7                          Em
It's got bums when it's cold like any other place
                A7
It's warm up inside
  Em                            A7
Sittin' down and waitin' for a ride
               GM7
Beneath the Skyway

        Em  C  A7  GM7 (or G)  Em  C  A7

          D
Oh then one day
  G                                 D
I saw you walkin' down that little one way
 GM7                                  D
Where the place I catch my ride most everyday
                 Em                      A7
They weren't a dawn thing I could do or say
               GM7      D
Up in the Skyway
 GM7     D     GM7    D
Skyway       Skyway
