Jack & Diane - John Mellencamp sur
[two versions in different positions] Jack and Diane John Mellencamp Thanks to Stuart Hamilton down under for reminding me what at great guitar song this is. It's pretty simple, but very tasty - one of my all-time favorites. I play it on solo acoustic, but, of course, to do it right, you need an electric too. I'm using his post as a guide since it contains the words and chords. I hope everyone that was interested got a copy of it. Everything here was taken from the record by ear so I'm sure it's no exact...but it's real close. The main difference between this and Stuart's are the chord formations. I tried to represent the timing accurately, but there are limitations here (both in the idiom and the time I have to spend on it). You can get an idea by counting the '-'s, but some of it wasn't cleanly on the beat. Playing along with the song is the only way to get it perfect.

Stuart posted here. I think the acoustic is just hitting powerful D notes here. The timing varies a little with each one - you'll have to listen and mimic for yourself) Power ending (distorted electric guitar) A E E A EA E D E:5--4--4-5--45-4-2------------------------------------------------------- B:5--5--5-5--55-5-3------------------------------------------------------- G:6--4--4-6--46-4-2------------------------------------------------------- D:7--6--6-7--67-6-0--00---00-0000-repeat and fade------------------------- A:0--0--0-0--00-0-0------------------------------------------------------- E:------------------------------------------------------------------------ Verse (Little ditty...)

His are good chords, but I think they are played up the neck. Barre the A with your index finger. The D and A use the same barre - don't move your index finger between A and D The E is the same formation as the D Slide up to the E the first time. Neither E string is played here. Also, the consecutive D's are damped, that is, let up on the left hand pressure after hitting the chords. They also are slightly off the beat - you'll just have to listen to the record.

I think with this and the previous post (and the record) most people should be able to impress their friends with this song. good luck, Dave The last person left on earth with no CD player.

A good clue for figuring this out is the recognizable D-Dsus4-D chord progression, which happens to be a whole-tone sharp. As usual for capoed guitar parts, I have given fret numbers relative to the capo and named chords as if they were being played in standard tuning.

The open A string is definitely present, which means the guitar is not capoed. If you want to play this part on guitar II, I would suggest playing the low A chord using a standard barre shape, 5776xx (these are actual frets, not relative to the capo). For the rest of the chords, play what's given below without the open A string.
