FDP Forum / The Chop Shop / 25 or 6 to 4... ending chords?

We're adding this tune but are having difficulty with the ending;
cannot decipher by repeated listening and haven't been able to
find anything on the web.

Does anyone know what the heck the last five chords are?

I did this tune a couple years back filling in for a band and I had to learn 'em, I wish you'd have asked then! I'll see if I can locate my chart.

OK you have a band, so the bass player is gonna play:
D C B Bb and A for the last 5.

YOU play the following from LOW E to HIGH E

Dm9 w/a 6th (no root)

x 8 9 5 5 x (decent stretch)

Cm69 (no root)

x x 7 8 8 10

B13+9 (no root)

x x 7 8 9 10

Bb13b9 (no root)

x x 6 7 8 7

B/A

x 0 13 11 12 14

NOTE: In between the last two chords one trumpet hits a single F note so you could go up and grab that at the 13th fret high E. OR you could move the whole Bb13b9 up 6 frets, but I find that clunky-sounding. Have one instrument hit that note if you're playing the chords, or if you're doing it as a trio then either leave it out or just grab the one note prior to the last chord.

Addendum: If you have a good thumb you can grab the C, B, and Bb (you're not getting the D!). You actually don't need your thumb for the second chord but you wouldn't want to use the C unless you were also using the B, and Bb as well. You can even leave out the A at the end if you like and just play the B triad, but it is the last chord in the tune, and the A should be emphasized.

It's true and guess what? I use the same technique discussed in the Metronome I video. I set the metronome on 60, 4 beat measure, hit each chord on beat one only, then beats 1 and 2, etc.

And frankly I think these chords sound better without the bass notes. Unless you're playing some crazy solo arrangement, just play the top, let the bassist hit the bass notes. You can/should hit the open A on the final chord, but forget the rest of 'em.

Nice voicings, Tyrone. I don't know if they exactly duplicate the notes in the horn chart, but they capture the spirit and the overall sound, which is the main thing.

Nitpicking Note: The notation for the Cm6/9 (no root) chord shows seven strings. The rightmost 'x' should be omitted.

Te 52, those voicings are as close as you're gonna come on a guitar, and still remain playable, IMO.

You're right about that "x" I'll edit it when I'm done. THANKS for catching that!

I don't believe the horn chart can be replicated on one guitar any more than the 1st chord of "Hard Day's Night" can (it's two guitars with different voicings creating that sound). But the elements are there to my ear.
