Right Okay, just making a piano transcription of this,and I got the chords, I got the lead guitar down on piano ( apart from bent notes obviously..well had to say!)

Problem, (there only two verses) for some bizzarre and unexplained reason I cannot work out the notes that are being sung by phill lynot in the verses...

I am just not hearing something, what I need is someone who can tell me exactly what the notes are, should be simple one thinks , its in Aminor, well the version I am doing is, but it aint proving easy to me, so I asked dipsey who sings in a choir sometimes,

and for maybe a completely different reason, she too can only get a bit of it...

SO, please anyone with perfect ears? anaylasis of what is making it appear "foggy" would also be gratefully received.

thanks folks,

chords and words:

I don't think he knows what he's singing. smile

You really should pick up a keyboard with mod wheels. Then you can fool around with that stuff righteously. smile

Why don't you ask your Basset Hound? He's got big enough ears. smile
I get it...the Basset is hogging your keyboard....right?

He's using notes from the underlying chords but from "I recall that you were mine" the double tracked voice starts in harmony and the notes are less distinct.

The second verse he begins with two different lines with a third voice and yet another harmony in the background. It's the double tracking that's making it foggy.

Strictly, double tracking is one voice but two mikes/tracks but here Phil's recording an overdub and the second voice moves into harmony.

Once you've got the chords, there are plenty of sites offering them, it's fairly easy to pick out the main line but remember to use all the notes. He's sing C at the end of the first line (forty-nine) over Dm 7, for example.

- he seems to be singing with so much feeling he's losing control of his pitch - plus there's a two part thingy going on.

Is this of any use:-

I remember par- = all on A
-is, in for- = G
-ty-nine = F

the champs-el- = G
-y = A
-sée, st. michele and old beaujolais = G
wine = E
and = C
I = F
re- = E
-call = D slur to C

that = C
you = E
were mine =D

in those parisi = D
- ene = C#
days = E

I can jot out a lead sheet tomorrow if that's easier to read

Spot on again, dire tonic. I'd fallen to a harmony by the time I reached the guitar!

Here you go, Rossy, some kind soul has already done the work..

http://www.scribd.com/doc/15851300/Parisienne-Walkways-Sheet-Music-1978

He's singing it as a rock ballad so the timing's a bit of a mess.

It was foggy because his pitch is a bit tremulous, the guitar counter melody is a bit too forward and his voice a bit too far back in the mix (sounds good but makes the job difficult).
