The Knack 
Maybe Tonight (1978)
(Doug Fieger)

From: "Get the Knack"

I have always liked this beautiful song!

When I sat down to transcribe it I noticed that there is something strange 
about the A-chord in the verses: If my ears dont deceive me, the rhythm 
guitar plays a major chord in the first half and a minor in the second. In 
the second verse the lead guitar even plays a minor line (starting off from 
a c) over this major chord, thus creating a strange tension there. The 
solo on the other hand (which uses the verse structure) has Am both times, 
I think. If you dont hear it that way, just use Am throughout in the 
verses. Comments are highly welcome!
