IT'S NO GOOD TRYING - Syd Barrett
---------------------------------
transcribed by Greg O'Beirne (gobeirne@tartarus.uwa.edu.au)

(This is the solo acoustic version found on Track 15 of
 "The Madcap Laughs" disc of the Crazy Diamond box set.  It was
 recorded on 11th April, 1969, at Abbey Road Studios, London.
 It's virtually the same chords that he played on "No Good Trying"
 on the original "The Madcap Laughs" album, but the bass on that
 track implies slightly different chords and spacings.  All the
 chords on this version are to be played as standard E-form
 barre(tt) chords.  Just adlib during the E section between each
 verse for a random number of bars...)


     G
It's no good trying to place your hand
                            D
where I can't see because I understand
            A
that you're different from me
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/syd_barrett/its_no_good_trying_crd.html ]
yes I can tell
                              D
that you can't be what you pretend
           G
and you're rocking me backwards
           A#
and you're rocking towards the
C                        D
red and yellow mane of a stallion horse.

E

     G
It's no good trying to hold your love
                            D
where I can't see because I understand
            A
that you're different from me

yes I can tell
                              D
that you can't be what you pretend
    G                      A#
the caterpillar hood won't cover the head of
    C                  D
you know you should be home in bed.

E

     G
It's no good holding your sequin fan
                            D
where I can't see because I understand
            A
that you're different from me

yes I can tell
                              D
that you can't be what you pretend
           G                    A#
yes you're spinning around and around in a car
      C                            D
with electric lights flashing very fast...
