Working for the Weekend - Loverboy
Submitted by Garrick Sissons
garricksissons@hotmail.com
(My first submission)

This work is my own interpretation of chords that should work to do the song on 
acoustic guitar by oneself. The "riff" chords are optional.  I actually start 
singing it at half-speed and gradually speed up through the song and the audiences 
seem to find it interesting and amusing. Not a song people expect to hear acoustically.  :)
 
Capo +2 for Original Key (of B)
(But if you are not a real decent tenor or a female then I suggest notching it 
down like I have it here)

Sounds really good, and complete (thanks!), but I think for the bridge (you wanna piece of my heart) it sounds better with B B-5 B4, and then a little thing with the bass notes.

B B-5 B4
e--------------
B--------------
G-4-4-4--------
D-4-3-2--------
A-2-2-2--------
E--------------

You might argue the name "B4" - it's like a power chord with a 4th instead of 5th with no 3rd. You might call it an inverted E5, but I think B4 fits the context here....
