He Said She Said - Loudon Wainwright sur Guitariff.netHere is a transcription of 'He Said, She Said' by Loudon Wainwright III. (Possibly the USA's most underated singer songwriter?) It is transcribed from a TV performance on 'Loudon & Co' transmitted 13 July 1994 here in the UK. It was played with a capo at the second fret and using barre chords for the C#m A and B The A and B chords are played with the E-shape at the 7th and 9th frets. (? due to the capo?). The C#m is played with an A-minor-shape at the 4th fret. There is only one slight complication which I will try and explain which is marked in the text as 'C riff' because I don't know how else to describe it. He starts with a normal three fingered C chord but emphasising the 5th string and using a little progression down to the 6th string before the next chord which is the E or B 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 3 2 0 0 x x x 3 G for example the sequence is: 3 2 0 3 E-chord 3 2 0 3 B-chord Please do not talk softly. When carr y ing your stick Had I known how difficult this was going to be to explain I may never have started :-) Anyway here we go. Hope you like it.
