Dear OJ fans/guitar players,
Please find attached a draft of the distillation of 25 odd years of trying to figure out how he does it. I hope someone finds it useful and that it stimulates some sharing of ideas as to corrections/revisions/additions.
I originally put it on the Songs and Tabs section of the forum but it seems to have slipped off the radar. I got some welcome feedback at the time (thanks guys) and if you look there, Gary Cochran's comment about how difficult it is to figure out the chords for OJ songs is one I heartily agree with. Any ideas you have about, for example, the key of untitled melody or whether chords need tweaking would be very welcome.
I have used chord positions up and down the neck according to what my ears tell me are the dominant sounds but that is obviously personal preference. Any ideas as to the filling out and layering of the arrangements would be welcome.
Lastly, can anybody supply with the lyrics to punch drunk? It would make me a happy man.
How are you and how is Edwyn? All well I hope. It has been a while since i posted anything and I don't know where the time has gone. I saw on the AED website that Edwyn is playing in Kendal on 28th July but when I checked the venue link I couldn't see any mention. Is he playing?
