I'd Like That - XTC
        -------------------


                From the album Apple Venus vol. I
                
                transcribed by Howard Wright
                howardw (at) jmdl (dot) com



This is a very nice one to bash out on an acoustic. There are 
a few interesting/unusual chords, but most of them are fairly 
straight forward. All chord shapes given at the end.

One thing to be aware of: for the intro and most of the verses
only the bottom three notes of the chord are played, so the
guitar part has a somewhat "minimal" feel about it. When the E
chord that comes just before each verse is strummed, all 6 strings
are played to give a contrasting "big" sound.


Intro:
------

A        F#m7       E/G#       D/F#
  
A        F#m7       E



Verse 1:
--------

    A        F#m7  E/G#   D/F#  A     F#m7      E/G#    D/F#
I'd like that       if we could cycle down some lane

    A        F#m7  E/G#   D/F#  A     F#m7    E/G#   
I'd like that       if we could ride into the rain

                 F#
No macs, getting wet

            B               F#        B     A
I'd be your Albert if you'd be Victoria, ha ha

     C#7                E7/G#              G#7/B#         C#m    
We'd laugh because each drop would make me grow up really high, 

                   F#m
really high like a really high thing

       E
Say, a sunflower


Note: the guitar chord(s) for the word "sunflower" are hard to hear 
because the big vocal harmony kind of covers everything. I think a 
basic E will work, but you could also try E  B/E (E for "sun" and
B/E for "flower") which is the basic harmony of the vocal part.


    A        F#m7  E/G#   D/F#   A   F#m7  E 
I'd like that


Verse 2:
--------

(Same chords as verse 1)

I'd like that
        What would you like?
If we could lay before my fire
I'd like that
        What would you like?
If you could slide me from this wire
Toasting fork, I'll be done
I wouldn't Hector if you'd be Helen of Troy, oh boy
We'd laugh because each flame would make me grow up
Really high, really high like a really high thing
Say, a sunflower



    A        F#m7  E/G#   D/F#   A   F#m7  E/G# 
I'd like that

Middle 8
--------

F#/A#                           B            Eb
I'd smile so much my face would crack in two

F#/A#                           B            Eb
Then you could fix it with your kissing glue

    A    F#m7  E/G#
I'd like that

         A    F#m7  E/G#
Yes, I'd like that

A   F#m7   E/G#   D/F#

A   F#m7   E


Verse 3:
--------

(Same chords as verse 1, exceot where indicated)


I'd like that
        What would you like?
If we could float away in bed
I'd like that
        What would you like?
If I could row your heart and head
With you laid on one arm
I'd be your Nelson if you'd be my Hamilton, what fun
We'd laugh because each stroke would make me grow up
Really high, really high like a really high thing

        E         B
Say, a sunflower

        E         B
Say, a sunflower

                E
Let me hear you say it!

      B           E
Say a sunflower I became

       B               E
I'd be growing in your rain


repeat the   B   E  sequence to fade, (with optional 
fast flamenco-ish strums and hand-claps!)




Chord Shapes
------------

Note that for quite a few of these shapes, only the lowest 
three notes are strummed - e.g the A chord is more or less
played as A5 (x022xx).

No, G#7/B# is the correct name. The 3rd note of a G#major chord/scale is B#. Yes, B# has the same pitch as C, but the chord name should reflect the chord/scale it relates to, in this case G# major (G# A# B# C# D# E# F## G#) , hence B#.
