chords for Pacifica
« on: December 30, 2013, 05:44:07 pm »
Can anyone help me with the chords for Pacifica by Los Straightjackets?
I think I've got the melody right, but the comping chords puzzle me.
This is what I found:

intro: G Bm Bb Am
First 8 measures: G Em C Dm/F
Second 8 measures ??? (Just G7 F/G ???)
Interlude, again, G Bm Bb Am (but now each chord is whole bar),
Solo uses same changes
The 'arpeggiated' piece: Bm Am Bm Am C Em plus ??? (last four bars of the second eight )

A bit confusing, but maybe there is a simple solution...
Thanks a lot.
