CD TRACK 8
[Bars 1-8] The original version’s synth intro lasts for a whopping 41 bars, so I’ve scaled it back here - you can extend it as you see fit. The feel of the shorter intro is 4/4, although it’s represented better as 2/4 in light of the original that has many cut bars of only two beats. [Bars 9-40] This is a really simple piano arrangement (should your fingers get itchy to play). I’ve left the piano on the backing as per the original version, but this will help with the slow and organic intro. [Bars 41-54] After Roger Daltrey’s verse, Pete comes in with these powerful chords based around a straightforward I-V-IV progression. The major 3rd in the C and Bb chords is more of a happy accident due to the barred third finger, so you’ll notice some variation throughout. Watch out for your timing (and form) on the C chords at the end of this section (the insistent synth on the backing track should help keep you in time). [Bars 55-62] Pete sings this plaintive interlude section. Don’t worry if you get lost with the slightly confusing synth line, as there’s a nice long drum fill to bring you back in again for the next verse.
