Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Band: Galaxie 500
Song: Pictures
Album: Today

tabbed by Jackie Joyner

This is purely a strum along. Galaxie 500 at some of their most Velvet-y Underground-edness. I'm not going to
tab the solos but like all Galaxie 500 songs, they are fairly simple.


The whole song has the same chords throughout. The basic chords are:

D - G - D - G - D - G - D - A

The structure is like this:

Intro
Verse/Chorus
Guitar Solo
Verse/Chorus
Guitar Solo/Outro

I say Verse/Chorus because there really is no defined verse or chorus. There's just parts where Dean sings
and parts where he doesn't.

There are some pull offs during these chords and Dean plays the A kind of strangely. Here is how the tab 
looks. 
(Each iteration of the chord is a stroke, such that two chords next to each other represent an upstroke and a
down stroke. An empty dash or - means you don't play on that up or down stroke)
