Two Sets of Joneses

This song is a beautifully done acoustic piece. It has a great message, and sounds great! I saw another version on the OLGA, but it seemed all screwed up to me! (Sorry, Schrist913!) If you have any further corrections, E-mail me at MrData9999@aol.com, or, is that one is dead, try HomieG@juno.com. I take requests from almost any Christian group, and some non-Christian as well. I WRITE THESE THINGS BY EAR, not using a computer. It sounds great on a Gibson vintage-50s Model 703 (which I have!). This song can be played without a capo, but it is played with one on the 2nd fret in the music video on "Open All Nite", and with a capo on the 3th fret in the original album. two_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htm Intro: C E7 Am G6 F G6 F G6 C e+|-------/------/------/------------/--------/-----------0---/--0------- B+|------/------/------/------------/--------/------------1---/--1------- G+|-----/------/------/------------/--------/-------------0---/--0------- D+|----/------/------/------------3------0-/-----3--------2H3-/-P2------- A+|--3-------2------0--------0-2----------/--------2--3---3---/--3------- E+|--X---------------------3-------------/----------------0---/--0------- two_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htmtwo_sets_of_joneses.htm Wow! Did that look confusing? Here is a *simple* explination: X - mute / - strum, as in a chord H - hammer P - pull-off See? Oh, and if you have heard the song before, you'll know how the tempo goes. And the strumming part - well...that's not "exactly" how it is in the song, but -- *you* try to figure that stuff out!! :) It sounds good my way, however. Experiment!
