  • Hi Guys,

    Welcome to my lesson No. 50

    So let's do something special here!

    [...]Alan Parsons met Eric Woolfson in the canteen of Abbey Road Studios in the summer of 1974. Parsons had already acted as Assistant Engineer on the Beatles' albums Abbey Road and Let It Be, had recently engineered Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon, and had produced several acts for EMI Records.[4] Woolfson, a songwriter and composer, was working as a session pianist; he had also composed material for a concept album idea based on the work of Edgar Allan Poe.[...] From wikipedia

    I'm a big fan of Alan Parsons Project for a very long time and his last concert inspired me to do something like his famous orchestral tune Time". I combined some Jeff beck style licks with Alan Parsons to create an interesting mix.

    We have the typical structure INTRO | VERSE | BRIDGE | OUTRO

    Intro 0:00-0:18
    | D | Am/C | D | Am/C |

    Verse 0:19-0:46
    | D | Bm6/D | A/C# | Am/C |
    | G/B | Gm6/Bb Gm/Bb | D | Am/C |

    Bridge 0:47-1:11
    | C/F G | D | C/F G | D |
    | C/F G | D | BbMaj7 Am7 |

    Outro 1:12-1:34
    | D | Am/C | D | Am/C |
    | D | D |
    Have fun! ;-)
