Brian actually plays this on an ukele banjo. This is onlyan approximate transcription for guitar. Gotta play it in thatfast, Dixie style. (Or is it Charleston? Anyways....) The*really* tough part, where you"ll need the most practice, is theC, B7, Bb7, A7, Dm7, C#dim, G7, C, G7+5 run. (Whoosh!) Once youcan play that, the rest of the song is a cinch.
Chords: G7+5 = xx1001, G#dim = xx0101,C/E = xx2010,1dim = xx1212, 2dim = xx2323 (don"t know the names,but they"re diminished chords)
