From: Ben Weiss 
Subject: CRD was REQ: Tracy Chapman, "Give Me One Reason"


My guitar just confirmed what my ear told me: It's a simple 12-bar 
blues.  There are a few variations on the pattern, but the one I use 
is:

   E7 A7 E7 E7  A7 A7 E7 E7  B7 A7 E7 B7

Here's how it fits with the lyrics:


GIVE ME ONE REASON

CHORUS: Give me ...
        A7                                                       E7

                  written by Tracy Chapman

                 track #9 on "new beginning"
        transcribed by Drew Boles (BolesGJD@aol.com)

This song has a pretty intricate and difficult lead. 
However, it sounds really good when you can play it.  Tracy
plays the rhythm electric guitar (basic pattern is tabbed
below), and her guitarist plays the blues lead guitar.

Here are the lyrics and the basic chord progressions for the
song.  The guitar parts are tabbed below.

That's basically the entire song.  There are two more riffs
in the last two verses that I thought were neat.  Here they
are (sorry, I don't remember where they go, or what chords
support them).

riff 1:
-------14-------16-------18-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/15------/16------/18-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

riff 2:
-17b-17b-14-----------------14------------------------------------------17p14--------14----------------17---------------------------------16Bb18-------16B17r16-14-16B17r16-14-------------------------------------------------------------16---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There rest of the song is just a guitar ad lib.  So, that's
all everybody.  Have fun.
