Macy Day Parade

by Michael Penn
from the Godzilla Soundtrack

As perceived by Paul Furedi

Thanks again, not only to Michael for such a kickin' tune, but also to Paul Furedi for this transcription. He did a great job with it, in my humble opinion... Here's what Paul has to say for himself about it:

No capo, basic chords (standard open string E chords, second position barre B chords) The low string riffs are real easy, usually with a bent and released G on the low E string at the end. My chords represent the entire harmony present, including the vocal line and bass guitar part, and often the guitar chords do not include the major seventh in the melody or the third in the bass, so use your judgment as to where to keep my symbols, and where they may just be confusing.

Got it? Good. Now go play it. :-)

key of E
6/8 time
