I spent a few minutes trying to figure this one out [SRV's "Couldn't Stand

The Weather"] about a week ago. I don't have much of it, but this might

help you out, and it's better than nothing.


Remember -- as always with SRV, tune down half a step.


The opening flurry is consists of riffs on wierd suspensions of the chords

Bm, A, G and F#, I think.


After that, it kicks into the main riff:

(Eb) |-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

(Bb) |-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

(Gb) |-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

(Db) |-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

(Ab) |-5-3-5-----------|---------------3-|-5-3-5-----------|-----------------|

(Eb) |-----------1---3-|-----------4-5---|-----------------|---2---3---4---5-|

1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &


The verses continue with that chord progression -- D, then G. I think the

chorus was mostly F#m and E.
