Complete Second Thoughts Tabs

Starting with Lovey Dovey. I noticed when I was working this out that the bass guitar and the piano don't really relate to each other as you would expect in the verse, for example in the "It can only mean you left me for sure" part the bass guitar is playing C B A , and the piano bass is A G# F# E. This is one of my all time favourite Split Enz songs, I was quite surprised it wasn't on Spellbound. I much prefer the Second Thoughts version to the one on Beginning of the Enz.

Original Post
Late Last Night By Phil Judd

I prefer the 7" single version now... Semi-detached converted me, I've seem the light, I've repented the sins of a former life where I thought Phil Manzanera was better than Ernie Rose. The piano solo and brass are better in the Second Thoughts version though....

You know the words.....

Cheers Zombos. If anyone else beside Zombos and BWIG are playing these, any feedback appreciated Smiler

More are coming... should have 129 and Woman Who Loves You up very soon, I might copy the mental notes tabs into here for the same songs that are on Second Thoughts.

Once this album's out of the way it'll be much quicker, for one I've already worked out most of the other albums, and they're much easier than these two. Some of these songs are amazingly complex, Late Last Night and Lovey Dovey in particular.

And just to boggle all your minds, The Woman Who Loves You uses my favourite type of chord relation, chromatic and diatonic median relation whoo hoo!

You act as though you were a blind man who's crying
Crying about, all the virgins that are dying
And your habitual dreams you know, seems you need more sleep
But like a parrot in a flaming tree, I know it's pretty hard to see
And I'm beginning to wonder if it's time for a change
But still you try, like a fat boy, Dancing Gershwin's blues
But you'd rather, sit at home and watch the news
And I'm begining to wonder if it's time for a change
I'm beginning to wonder if it's time for a change

I found myself, in silver dreams
I'm talking in my sleep to pawns and queens
Outspoken words you know they just don't mean the same thing
oh someboy must be killing me
Oh somebody must be lying to me
Oh and please don't tell me which is red and which is black
Oh when are you coming back to me babe?
Oh when are you coming back to me babe?

Ahh, I'm glad you added the B, C#m, A, progression part into Sweet Dreams, T'was glaringly absent from the Play it Strange website, and I was going to abuse you if it was missing this time Wink Heheh, great work as always...

I have only the slightest idea what chromatic and diatonic median relation is, but I love the chords in that song! Please get that baby up Camus! We're counting on you! All... 3 of us Big Grin
Yes, I'm going agree with A Bar of Soap. Your Sweet Dreams tab kicks some serious ass.

And for very few chords involved, it seems a rather complex song. Thank God for those barlines, too. That made it considerably easier to play along with!

Fantastic job! More! More!

Don't stand a chance, without Romance
Keep the graveside warm for me
Ever since you shot through
I've crooned for you
Because the woman who loves you
Is the woman you need, need to hold
But the woman who loves you is dead
Without her charms, arm in arm
Lover's lane would be just a memory
Becasue the woman who loves you she's dead

Thankye so kindly Mr. Camus, I note you've been watching the performance on the DVD (Neil playing with capo)... Tops!

Also, How does one play the G#m/B on guitar, that's... difficult Smiler

Thanks again mate, Now onto Jamboree! Big Grin I've got... most of the intro though the right hand during the "Roll up, Roll up To The Jamboree" piano intro has me stumped Frowner Look forward to more great work! Smiler
Mmmhmm, we all know it's the best Enz stuff Wink If only we three could get together! Camus on Piano, Me on Acoustic, and Zombos on Electric (Eddie, Phil, and Wally) Big Grin

Are you still open for nitpicking Camus? For the G#m/B (Bbm/C#) chord, when playing it on piano I can only hear C# in the bass, and Bb C# F# Bb with the right hand... Making it... F#/C# I think? I can't hear an F natural is all... Could be wrong... Probably will me Wink
That chord was a bone of contention for me as well, I played it as Db(C#) octave in the bass with a Bb octave in the treble, and neither F natural or F#/Gb fit to my ear. I think it si only Db and Bb in the chord. Wait till we get to I Got You, everyone insists on calling the second chord a Bb, but it isn't, it's simply Bb and D, or A# and D, which could be D #5 (no third) or Bb (no fifth). There simply isn't an F in the chord, which is why I've always argued that it isn't Bb, if you play a full chord, D augmented (D F# A#) is the only one to my ear that fits.


Some stage it would be nice to all play together, I've often thought about it, nobody in Hobart seems to be itnerested in playing SPlit Enz or Finn songs.
Mmm, there are only 2 strings being played in I Got You, I have trouble with the "G" chord, if it's even that, where it's "... (all) I want", It's different to either of the chords in the intro, but doesn't work right for me...

On the subject of Woman Who Loves You, ...I'm not a pianist, but I'm trying to work out the song, It's cool how for D chords, Eddie plays a D in the bass for half the chord, then an A, for an F#m, He plays F#, then C# or something...

I'm terrible with my left hand on piano... Does Eddie play single bass notes or chords? Thanks man, I hope that makes sense...

New Doctors Who's on this week, think it looks good?
I think the new Doctor Who will be interesting, I don't think the new Doctor will surpass Tom Baker though Smiler but he can't be worse than the the last three they had.

Eddie plays a jump bass in his left hand, it's a typical ragtime left hand, where you play a full octave root note, then shift your left hand to play the chord, then shift your hand again to play a full octave fifth note then shift again to play the same chord. It's not for the faint hearted. Think of The Entertainer by Scott Joplin (I'd be floored if you'd never heard it, it was the theme to the film The Sting, everyone knows it), The Woman Who Loves You is in exactly the same style.

Yes that's a G chord in I Got You.
