Bridge in Over the Hills

Recommended Posts

Do you know how to play Good Times Bad Times?

It is very similar to the middle section in that (F#).

I'll try and decribe it rather than providing a tab (which I don't have)

It goes back and forth between the 11th and 9th frets (barring the D, G, and B strings) then goes down to the 4th and 2nd frets (at one point sliding up to the 6th fret)

This is all assuming you have the tune rather firmly in your head. If you need any more help, just say the word and I will try to be more clear (maybe even make a tab!)

Cheers.

Tihe big (bur subtle) difference between the F# riffs in GTBT and OTHAFA is that the GTBTimplies F#m, but the Hills... riff, while being mostly minor in tonality, ends on an F#7 (ie with the major third). Really lovely little touch that gives it that particular flavour.

That's right. It is a cool little addition that sounds awesome.

The riff can be surprisingly tough to play at a fast speed (mainly with the slide from 4 to 6, and when you try it on Acoustic ;)), but sounds great.

Nice job on the makeshift tab!

Just realised that I didn't describe the 2nd time through correctly:

It's almost the same, but misses out the slide up to the 6th fret, then ends on the F#7 chord.
