OK. Here are the real chords to Listen to the Music by the Doobie Brothers. First of
all, the intro is E. Not the open chord, but the barre type chord. Now its NOT the open
chord. Its the E barre Chord. You know how you put your fingers over the seventh and
ninths frets, well, just put a finger over the ninth fret to give you that E sound,
and hammer onto the 5th string, 11th fret. Simple. Then its just a simple chord under
it, (This is an A) in the form of a standard barre chord, except remove your pinky
finger. ( this chord is an A)!


- NOTE PLay the song in barre chords and remember to hammer on for the E type of chord!
Good luck!

Surrounding castles in the sky
C#m                            E
And the crowd is growing bigger
C#m                           E
List’nin’ for the happy sounds
C#m                      E               
And I got to let them fly


[Chorus]
    C#m               A
Oh, oh, listen to the music
    C#m               A
Oh, oh, listen to the music

Excellent tab, except you meant to hammer on to the 2nd string 10th fret with your pinky to make an A, like so:

E A E
e|-------------------------------|
B|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--10-10-10-9-----|
G|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--9--9--9--9-----|
D|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--9--9--9--9-----|
A|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--7--7--7--7-----|
E|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--7--7--7--7-----|

And the bridge goes like this:

E D
Like a lazy flowing river
A E
Surrounding castles in the sky
E D
And the crowd is growing bigger
A
List’nin’ for the happy sounds
A
And I got to let them fly
