Summer of '69 - Bryan Adams

The verses are just D A D A ... as many as needed  with the change
occurring on every second bar. There is an additional two bars of D
at the start as well.
The way to play it is something like this:
     
 D.   .   .   .     .   .   .   .     D.   .   .   .     .   .   .   .
|-----------------|-----------------||-----------------|-----------------|
|-3-----3---------|-----------------||-3-----3---------|-------------3---|
|-2---2-2---2-2-2-|-2-2-2-2-2-2-----||-2---2-2---2-2-2-|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---|
|-0---0-0---0-0-0-|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---||-0---0-0---0-0-0-|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---|
|-----------------|-------------0---||-----------------|-----------------|
|-----------------|-----------------||-----------------|-----------------|
 A.   .   .   .     .   .   .   .
|-----------------|-----------------||
|-----------------|-----------------||  repeat last 4 bars throughout
|-2-----2---------|-------------2---||  verses.
|-2---2-2---2-2-2-|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---||
|-0---0-0---0-0-0-|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---||
|-----------------|-----------------||
 The dots show the beat.
Use moderate amounts of overdrive, and mute the 2's with your palm to get
the distinctive percussive sound.               0

The Chorus chords are |Bm|A|D|G|Bm|A|D|G|Bm|A| (I use B instead of Bm)
use standard open A,D, and G and a barred A shape for B. 

The keyboard riff is sort of an arpegiated D and A ie.
 D                                    A
|-0-----2-----3---|---2-----0---2---|-----------------|------------------| 
|---3-----3-----3-|-----3-----------|-0-----2-----3---|---2-----0----2---|
|-----2-----2-----|-2-----2---2---2-|---2-----2-----3-|-----2------------|
|-----------------|-----------------|-----2-----2-----|-2-----2----2---2-|
|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|------------------|
|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|------------------|

This sounds a bit messy with overdrive, so play it clean, or (even easier)
just play the melody part (which is mainly what you hear on the CD anyway)

e|-0-----2-----3---|---2-----0---2---|-----------------|------------------|
b|-----------------|-----------------|-0-----2-----3---|---2-----0---2----|

For the key change after the second chorus, the chords are:
|F|Bb|C|Bb|F|Bb|C|C|  again use the barred A shape for Bb and C.
That's about all for Summer of '69#
