Thread Name: Chord Req: Life is like a mountain railway
Subject: Chord Req: Life is like a mountain railway
I sang this at a church service once and the minister said, "no, it isn't." But my question is about chords, not theology.
I get into discussions/arguments because I like to change chords more than most folks. Listening to Johnny and Earl doing this in great key of B - Circle II - John and Earl - I hear (using G shapes capoed) -
(G)Life is like (D) a mountain (G)railway .. and again in the Heed the curves line. But most chord charts keep it on the 1-chord.
Apart from what the composer may actually have intended, what is the consensus on what sounds best? (Not what is easiest to play - what fun is that?)
Thanks, Chris
