I'm Down(Lennon/McCartney)

 

As performed by Aerosmith on "Permanent Vacation"

 

It sounds like one guitar plays straight barre chords

and the other plays them in this fashion:

E----------------------------------------|

B----------------------------------------|

G----------------------------------------|

D--------------------------5--7--5--7--5-|

A--5--7--5--7--5--7--5--7--3--3--3--3--3-|

E--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3----------------| etc...

 

E--3----------|

B--3----------|

G--4---5---7--|

D--5---5---7--|

A--5---3---5--|

E--3----------|

G C5 D5

 

G

You tellin lies thinking I can't see

 

You can't cry 'cos you're laughing at me

C5

I'm down(I'm really down)

G5

I'm down(down on the ground)

C5

I'm down(I'm really down)

C5 / / G5

How can you laugh when you know I'm down

 

How can you laugh when you know I'm down

G--------------------------|-------------|

D-5--------------3---------|-----------5-|

A-------1-3--3\5---5-3-1---|-----------5-|

E-----3------------------3-|-----1b-r--3-|

 

The chord progression for the next verse is the same as

above. During the piano solo the chord progression is

G-C-G-D-C-G(etc...)

 

I transcribed this directly from the cd without using

the Beatles version as a reference. The Beatles version

sounds very similar, though, and there's a professional

transcription for it. If you want to check it out

it's included in "The Beatles Complete Scores" from Hal

Leonard(By the way, if you're a big Beatles fan like I

am, this book is a "must have" anyway). You can get it

from Music Dispatch(the number is in the "professional

transcription" section of this page) for about $60.

 

Transcribed by Bryson Meunier(meunier.1@osu.edu)

 

Symbols used in transcription:

\ = slide

b = bend

r = release

h = hammer-on

p = pull-off
