Oh thnx Russ,,I’m sure Barney Fife’s relatives will be pleased...

Here's a two in one,

the name of one of his early bands was the _________ Chords

the song in question has a mM7 chord in it.

Rawhide Creek - Posted - 03/20/2018:  20:32:56


Late ‘70s—early ‘80s there was a British “mod” band called “The Chords”.  That’s as close as I can come right now.

Hint: He's been touring since 1960 but skipped 8 years.

Is it Morris Albert with his one hit wonder Feelings?

mmuussiiccaall - Posted - 03/21/2018:  10:11:27


Good guess since it does have a mM7 chord but he is too young for the touring hint.

Mooooo - Posted - 03/21/2018:  10:28:53


Sounds like someone who went to prison...I doubt David Allen Coe or Merle Haggard would use a mM7 chord...but you never know. Or maybe someone who had a few children and stopped touring, like Loretta Lynn...but I don't think kids would stop her.

mmuussiiccaall - Posted - 03/21/2018:  10:54:52


Chuck he hired a backup band of Canadian origin in the 60's.

Didn't Rush play backup for the McKenzie Brothers?

Maybe, but they weren’t around in 1960

Don’t Think Twice, It’s Allright

Mooooo - Posted - 03/21/2018:  13:51:24


I don't think there's a minor major 7 chord in that one

yep Bob Dylan



And for those following along here's a rendition of one of the most famous songs that uses  mM7 chords to evoke a eerie feeling youtube.com/watch?v=1uxV0-SnU0Q



BTW Harlem Nocturne was composed by Earle Hagen who wrote thousands of songs for T.V. and movies, one of them is the theme from the Andy Griffith show (Earl was the whistler).

Sometimes I wish Rick would just post a chart of the song so we can stop blindly guessing. You know he has one, he has a chart for everything.

I have never heard that tune, but wow...what a great one. I knew you had a chart for this Rick!!! I'm gonna listen a couple more times.

Mooooo - Posted - 03/22/2018:  11:10:00


If no one has an idea for the next tune and still has interest in playing, I have one that I have been sitting on.

This song is a Classic Country song for chuckv97.
It starts out with this classic guitar lick(numbers are notes, not chords) starting on
the 5 above the tonic and the first two notes are pickup notes:
5 b3|5 4 b3 4 4 b3| 4 3 b3 3 3 b3 | 3 2 b7* 2 1 b7* 1 7* 5*|6* 1 6 1*|
b3= flat 3
* = below the tonic. ie b7*= a whole step below the tonic

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/23/2018:  06:29:22


Played thru it a few times, Mooooo , but all I get is “duh,I dunno”

Mooooo - Posted - 03/23/2018:  10:29:34


Sorry, I got that 3rd full measure divided wrong it should be like this:

5 b3|5 4- b3 4- 4 b3| 4 3- b3 3- 3 b3 | 3 2- b7* 2- 1 b7* |1 7*- 5*6* 1 6-| 1*|

the "-" marks are rests. And the question is for everyone, not only Chuck - I'm

not playing favorites. I am sure someone will get it.


Edited by - Mooooo on 03/23/2018 10:33:15

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/23/2018:  11:02:56


Ok, the rests should help...it’s always a problem getting note values, but I guess you can’t give too much away..will make another “valiant” later...

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/04/2018:  20:39:01


Any more clues, Mike?

Mooooo - Posted - 04/04/2018:  21:27:07


I thought everyone forgot about this...hmmm...Friday will be the 2nd anniversary of the singer's death. James Burton played that very famous lick that starts out the song in question....maybe it was Roy Nichols....not sure, but it's one of those two.



It's in E major.

Btw, I had tickets to see him and he got sick...then he died a year or so later...but I still have the tickets.

Very funny Russ...I got a good laugh out of that one. Poor George.

Gosh all fishhooks, I wonder what other thread that could be.  The (cough) tension (cough) is almost unbearable.

that's my version of that intro

chuckv97 - Posted - 04/04/2018:  22:57:48


Ok, let’s see if I can convey this one with alacrity and coherence - not my strong suits ( although I do possess a birthday suit)

The song in question ,recorded by a “girl group”in the sexy sixties, took its melody from a circa 1740 tune. The pop “composers” changed the key signature to 4/4 from the original 3/4.

A Winner! Rick, you are the recipient of a toy harpsichord , autographed by JS himself, although that minuet was composed by another Kraut hillbilly, whose name escapes me right now.
