E Bye Love
Simon And Garfunkel
Song title: Bye Bye Love Performed by: Simon and Garfunkel Album: Bridge Over Troubled Water Chords interpreted by: Hans Julian Sloman Sound available on YouTube /watch?v=d0gLnfSgdLA The song seems to be using only the chords B, F# and C# (and E5 in the intro); however there are multiple ways of creating those sounds. Another version available on here tells you to play A, E, and B, (and D5) while using a capo in 2nd fret. However getting from E to B can be awkward for beginners, so here's a version that I came up with that might make it easier for you, while still being able to play along with the song (e.g. not in a different key): Capo 7th fret INTRO: C A5 F F A5 C [CHORUS] F C Bye bye, love. F C Bye bye, happiness. F C Hello, loneliness. C G C I think I'm gonna cry. F C Bye bye, love. F C Bye bye, sweet caress. F C Hello, emptiness. C G C I feel like I could die. C G C Bye bye, my love, goodbye. [VERSE 1] C G There goes my baby G C With someone new. C G She sure looks happy; G C I sure am blue. C F She was my baby F G 'till he stepped in. G Goodbye, to romance G C That might have been. (CHORUS) [VERSE 2] C G I'm through with romance. G C I'm through with love. C G I'm through with counting G C The stars above, C F And here's the reason F G That I'm so free: G My lovin' baby G C Is through with me. (CHORUS) (repeat and fade) Goodbye, my love goodbye. (some more notes: -7th fret is quite far up for a capo, so it only works on good acoustics or electric guitars -play A5 simply like a normal A except you only hit the A, D and G string/or you can mute the B string. -If you don't care for playing/singing along with the record, there are lots of easy variations available (e.g. Transposing, with change of key). For example you could play C, G, and D; or D, A, and E; or you can play the version described here without a capo.
