Subject: Help - YMCA notation needed
From: Sarah the flute
Date: 11 Sep 03 - 06:42 AM

Help - has anyone out there by any chance got the dots for that popular song by the Village people YMCA. We need the music urgently for a school concert and have drawn a blank so far. We have the words but need the music for our piano player. I know you probably wont want to admit to having this but any help - even a pointer to a website would be gratefully received

Thanks in advance and anticipation

Sarah

TabRobot search results. Any of those useful? If nothing else, the pianist can just use the chords and fake it.

Not sure if it helps, but I found this:

Tablature for Village People YMCA

I might suggest that you want to check in your local music store (place where you buy instruments vs CD stores), for a Fake Book:

Fake Books

There is one that is called the Ultimate Fake Book, which has 1200 songs in it. Didn't see a listing of titles in it.

Thanks guys it's better to have guitar tabs than nothing but if anyone has the notes for the tune that would be even better!

Thanks so much for help so far

Hi Sarah - go to http://www.di-arezzo.com/uk/accueil_cla.php?aff=google and search for ymca (no dots!). You'll find 2 sheets, about € 13.-

The song is just a 1-6-2(4)-5 progression--which would be something like C-Am-Dm(F)-
G7--the rhythm is boomboom-baba boomboom--baba (like the "Mashed Pototoes"--I am guessing that this is not going to really be a finely polished piece, so if the piano player just bangs out those chord, Elton John style, which would be a boomboom chord with the left hand and a Baba chord with the right hand (with the sustain pedal down), no one would ever know that you didn't have the sheet music--

Each chord is played for two measures:

||:CC/CC/AmAm/AmAm/Dm7Dm7/Dm7Dm7/G7G7/G7:||

With one boomboombaba for each chord, which would be two for each measure--minor adjustments might be necessary at the end of each phrase. I used to stroll tables in a restaurant   and play requests after the dinner music was done--I played this one a lot(quess when it was and what kind of clientel the restaurant had) and never worked it out or practiced it--it was a lot better that way:-)

Still looking for the dots
we will try the chords this afternoon at our first practice. None of my mates in this area will own up to having the music ah well!!!

Thanks for your advice m.ted that will be useful in explaining to the kid playing the piano what to do
