"What You Won't Do For Love" ?

I am not in front of keyboard.. the first three chords on the track. I am guessing key of Fm. I am referring to the very first three chords played at the intro. I never properly learned this.. and it is being revisited by one of the bands. Using just a computer.. and assuming Fminor. It sounds like two Ab Dom chords to a Db chord.

Play it in F minor / Ab major.

 

Think of the first chord as F/Ab. That's an upper structure voicing for an Ab13b9.

 

The next chord is just an Ab13 with the Ab on top.

 

The next chord is Dbmaj7

I haven't played it yet... just listening... Did you check out the brilliant reharmonization that Bobby introduces on the video by Dugg64.. it breaks up the monotony, with some fun stuff.

Thanks a lot

Yep! I noticed that immediately. Will be adding this to the repertoire with the hip new changes.

Instrumentation is meaningless - a song either stands on its own merit, or it requires bells and whistles to cover its lack of adequacy, much less quality. - kanker

And you KNOW you can't go wrong when you've got Lee Ritenour and Phil Perry backing you up. :thu:

I'm pretty certain the original key is A/F#m. A lot of guys took it down a half step to Fm because the singer couldn't hit the A on top comfortably.

 

If I had a twenty for every time I played this song back in the day, I'd have a house up in Carmel and would be riding my bike everyday on the 17 Mile Drive. :cool:

 

Great and classic song for sure.

Try doing it together with (alternating) Grover's 'Just The Two Of Us'. Same key, pretty much the same changes and a very easy integration. We do it all the time this way.....works.

Actually, if you sit down and just start playing it, it's hard NOT to do this.

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

I think so too. I seem to usually do it in Fm for the horns' sake.

Both versions are Great! :).

 

Loved Go West , was thrashing their music for a while :).

Peter Cox is one of my favorite singers. And they're touring again. Check out his twitter feed - he's been posting photos of the different venues from the stage perspective. They've got some beautiful halls over there in Britain!

Wow! , I would love to see Go West if they come to NZ , yeah loved that guy's special voice and songs.

 

Brett

 

I'm still a big Go West fan. If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend Peter Cox's solo debut.
