Chords for "Do It Again"
From: Jim Smart Date: Wed, 15 May 1996 07:01:49 -1000 Do It Again Written by Ray Davies Opening chord: G7sus??? or D7sus???? (see Hard day's night, possibly) Note: the intro is played by strumming a D chord, then hammering on your pinky to suspend the chord, then releasing the top string to add a high E note. Repeat this freely. D Standing in the middle of nowhere, Wondering how to begin. Lost between tomorrow and yesterday, C G Between now and then. D And now we're back where we started, Here we go round again. Day after day I get up and I say C (hold) I better do it again. A A-D G-G-G-A A A-D G-G-G-A A A-D G-G-G-A Where are all the people going? A A-D G-G-G-A Round and round till we reach the end. A A-D G-G-G-A One day leading to another, A A-D G-G-G-A Get up, go out, do it again. D C G Then it's back where you started, D C G Here we go round again. D C G Back where you started, C G Come on do it again. Note: Dave's lead is played over the chorus...D C G G, etc. ending with D D/C D/B Bb riff: repeat this phrase, which basically alternates between the chords of A and D. A CA D C A A C A D C (repeat) A A-D G-G-G-A And you think today is going to be better, A A-D G-G-G-A Change the world and do it again. A A-D G-G-G-A Give it all up and start all over, A A-D G-G-G-A You say you will but you don't know when. D C G Then it's back where you started, D C G Here we go round again. D C G Day after day I get up and I say C G Come on do it again. Dave's lead, then the riff Note: play the part below just like above, except when you get to the line "But it's superficial..." Then you should pick the triad of the 4 chords A D G A over and over. This means for A to play A, C#, E...etc. The days go by and you wish you were a different guy, Different friends and a new set of clothes. You make alterations and affect a new pose, A new house, a new car, a new job, a new nose. But it's superficial and it's only skin deep, Because the voices in your head keep shouting in your sleep. Get back, get back. D (strum it like at the beginning, adding pinky and releasing) Back where you started, here we go round again, D C G Back where you started, come on do it again. D C G D C G Back where you started, here we go round again, D C G C G Day after day I get up and I say, do it again. Bb D D/C D/B Bb Do it again. D C (hold) Day after day I get up and I say, come on do it again. Jim Smart Honolulu
Date: October 2, 2008 From: Scott Stetzer It's Dmaj Pent, but with some weird slidey-type thing going on. The second part of the figure, the fast part is just hammers /pull offs on the B and E at the 10th and 12th frets.
