Like the way I do
-----------------

>From Melissa Etheridge's first album. This is similar to tinag@kean's
chord version, but I've tabbed it out and changed her Bb to a Fsus4.

Tab isn't a great way to get across how to play this song, coz the
fingering is pretty easy, its the strumming pattern that's more difficult
to get (which is difficult to communicate using tab). I've tried to
explain it in a different way here, but if that doesn't make any sense,
there's a tab version too.


Most of the song is based around a 'hi' and 'lo' sounding version of each
of three chords: Dm(at 5th fret), (kindof) F and C.

Fingering|   call this     | 'real' name
 ---------|-----------------|---------------
EADGBe   |                 |
x57555   |     Dm (lo)     | ? Dm(add7,9) ?
x57765   |     Dm (hi)     |   Dm
         |                 |
xx3310   |     F (lo)      | ? Fsus4add7
xx3311   |     F (hi)      | ? Fsus4
         |                 |
x32010   |     C (lo)      |   C
x32030   |     C (hi)      |   Cadd9
         |                 |
x02020   |     A7          |   A7


The intro and chorus follow one pattern of strumming & hi/lo fingering
for each of the chords, the pattern is :

 -----o---o------------------o-o------|
 ---o-------o-x-x--o---o-o-o-----o-o--| pattern 1a, then
   ^       ^       ^       ^

 ---o-o---o------------------o-o------|
 -----------o-x-x--o---o-o-o-----o-o--| pattern 1b
   ^       ^       ^       ^

Where
 -o- on the bottom line is a strum of the (lo) version of each chord
 -o- on the  top   line is a strum of the (hi) version of each chord
 -x- is strum, but mute the strings at the neck
  ^  is a beat

The verse follows a second pattern :

 ---o--------------------------o--x-|
 -----------o----o--o---o---o-------|  pattern 2
   ^       ^       ^       ^

and the bridge, a third:

 -----o-------o----------------o)---|
 -------------------o------(o-------|  pattern 3
   ^       ^       ^       ^


So, if you combine the hi and lo versions of each chord to follow those
patterns and then put the patterns together like this, the song goes :

        ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^
[intro] Dm (pattern 1a) Dm (pattern 1b)
        F  (pattern 1a) F  (pattern 1b)

        F  (pattern 1a) C (let ring)

        F(pattern 2) F(pattern 2) A7(strum, getting louder)
         A7 ( strum ) |   N.C.   |
                     ("bby tll me")

         ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^
[chorus] Dm (pattern 1a) Dm (pattern 1b)
         F  (pattern 1a) F  (pattern 1b)
         C  (pattern 1a) C  (pattern 1b)
         Dm ( just  strum,  no hi / lo)
         Dm (pattern 1a) Dm (pattern 1b)
         F  (pattern 1a) F  (pattern 1b)
         C  (pattern 1a) C  (pattern 1b)
         Dm ( just  strum,  no hi / lo )
     <<  Dm(strm no hi/lo)|    N.C.    |
                           ("can I sur-") >>  <<1st time only>>

[guitar break over chorus chords/pattern to fade]

End of chorus (*)
 -------------
I'm not sure if I made the end of each chorus clear :


[chorus1] 1. play chorus over again, sing "want, infactuate, haunt.."
[chorus1] 2. play/sing "<>" bit, above


[chorus2] 1. play chorus over again, sing "want, infactuate, haunt.."
[chorus2] 2. sing 'ah, nobody.."  -> bridge

[chorus3] 1. play chorus over again, sing "want, infactuate, haunt.."
[chorus3] 2. play [Dm]like the way I do, whoa ho ho yeah [F] [C] [Dm]
                  [Dm] [F] [C] [Dm]
                  [Dm] [F] [C] [Dm]  guitar break to fade
                  [Dm] [F] [C] [Dm]


N.C. is "no chord"

Every time I listen to this song, I hear more (and different) versions of
patterns 1,2,3- so this isn't complete, but I'm pretty sure the chords
are right, so mess around with the patterns. Any improvements welcome.
