posticon Chord Progressions for the song "BURN" !!!!


My charted chords to "Burn" in my best estimation are probably about 90% accurate, and 95% complete. I have not included notes of the solos, nor how many beats each chord gets. You'll have to figure that out yourself. These are just the straight chord notations in alpha-numeric form.
 
On single finger notes I have no way of denoting ascending or descending travel on a text post, so you'll have to experiment and see what sounds the most familiar as you play.
 
If there are no abbreviations after a letter, assume that the chord is major.
 
A slash (/) following a chord denotes what's played in the bass-- (examp: A/B= A-major with a B-bass).
If I don't put a slash after the chord letter, presume that the bass matches the chord root.
 
If you have any questions, let me know. They are as follows:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 
[Key of G minor]
 
Intro/ (Hook Line):
(single notes)--
 
G Bb A G (GC-- played together as a G-power 4th),
G Bb A G (GC) Bb;
G Bb A G (GC),
G Bb A G (FC-- F-power 4th). (This whole sequence 4x'[sign in to see URL] and 2nd-- guitar alone, 3rd and 4th-- add organ).
------------------------------
 
Verse Chords:
 
Gm - F/G - Gm - C
 
[REPEAT HOOK LINE] x1
 
Gm - F/G - Gm - Bb - F - C
----------------------------------
 
Chorus:
 
Gm - Eb - C
 
[REPEAT HOOK LINE] x2
===========================
 
[REPEAT ALL OF THE ABOVE-- intro. excluded]
===========================
----------------------------------
 
Change:
 
D - Dm/Bb - (with NO chords up top): bass runs up: C, D, [sign in to see URL] down: E, (top chords come back in): A/A..quick top chord shift to.. Am/A - Bb - Dm - Bb/D - C/D
 
[REPEAT HOOK LINE] x2
---------------------------------
 
Guitar Solo (Chords during):
 
Gm - F/G - Gm - C - Gm - F/G - C - Gm
 
Eb - Gm - Eb - D
 
Arpeggio Section--
 
(Gm - Cm - F - Bb - Eb - [Cm6(omit the 5th)](play chord with the notes: Eb,A,C) - D7) x2
 
Gm - Cm - Gm - Cm - D7 hold.
 
[REPEAT HOOK LINE] x4-- (2x's guitar only, 2x's with organ)
 
[REPEAT CHANGE]
---------------------------------
 
Organ Solo Comp Chords:
 
(Gm - F) x4-- (all 8 chords played over a G-bass)
 
(D - C) x2-- (all 4 chords played over a D-bass)
 
Arpeggio Section--
 
(Gm - Cm - F - Bb - Eb - [Cm6(omit the 5th)](play chord with the notes: Eb,A,C) - D7) x2
 
Gm - Cm - Gm - Cm - D7 hold.
 
[HOOK LINE] x2
 
[VERSE]
 
[CHORUS]
 
[HOOK LINE] x2
----------------------------------
 
Conclusion:
(Follow the triad chord inversions very carefully here!!!)
(R)= root position (1-3-5)
(1)= 1st inversion (3-5-1),
(2)= 2nd inversion (5-1-3).
 
(Gm(R)/G-bass - F(R)/F-bass), (Cm(2)/C-bass - Bb(2)/Bb-bass), (Eb(1)/Eb-bass - D(1)/D-bass),
  
(Gm(1)/Eb-bass - D(2)/D-bass), (Gm(2)/Eb-bass - D(R)/D-bass), (Gm(R)/Eb-bass - F(R)/D-bass)....
 
Gm(1)/G-bass (hold with Leslie on fast [sign in to see URL] end)
 
(Note that chord clusters 5&6, 7&8, 9&10, and 11&12 all exhibit the bass that merely ocillates back and forth between Eb and D. This repetition is critical in creating the steady rooting that the conclusion winds down with).

Well, I hope it makes sense!!!

This is not conventional "Juliard School of Music" chord and note notation.

Some might say it's a tabular trainwreck, but it's the only way I could think to express it in text form on a forum, so there it is.

I would NEVER try to read along as I play this. It's a horrible distraction just trying to find yourself on the page.

My advice-- use it as a study guide when practicing at home (playing at 1/10th the speed with the metronome set to 60 bpm, or something rediculously slow like that), until you have the sequences memorized.

Then when you feel comfortable with it, speed up to normal speed.

The song isn't that difficult to play (at least on guitar), but it is quite hard to make it really sound good. It's little things that matter, and you've got to play it accurately not to make a mess out of it.
