I’m Gonna See My Friend

Pearl Jam, from the album Backspacer.


A pretty straight forward rock song to play, it’s
pretty much all power chords (Or 5th chords, to be
technical...) As with most Pearl Jam stuff there is
lots of harmonising going on between the different
guitars and the Bass. During the intro Mike McCready
is playing what sounds like a flatted 2nd over the B,
but I couldn’t find a good way of replicating this
with just one guitar, any suggestion welcome! Also,
in the bridge section (A, G, F#, E “Wanna leave it
all…”) Jeff Ament is holding down the chords that I
have listed, while Stone seems to be playing more of
an ascending riff, however, the bass is definitely the
dominant chord and the one that sounds best (to me
anyway) when played with one guitar. Again, any ideas
are welcome. Also, what I have suggested in the chorus
playing a E5/G is representative of a bass riff, but
sounds good… If you listen carefully the bass also
plays an A sometimes, so if you have flexible fingers
you might be able to get your little finger onto the
5th fret (without muting the A string!) Do what you
like!

On the intro I play a barred B and A chord, with index
and little finger. I mute the bass string with the top
of my index finger and the treble string with my little
finger. I find that if I play the full chord (ie: add
in the treble string) it doesn’t fit with the 5th
chords later on in the riff.

     B    A
e:--x---x--------------------------------------------|
B:--4---2--------------------------------------------|
G:--4---2--------------------------------------------|
D:--4---2--------------------------------------------|
A:--2---0--------------------------------------------|
E:--x---x--------------------------------------------|

For the chorus I play E5 with my index finger only, and use my middle finger to
hammer on to the G, 3rd fret sixth string.

    E5          (E5/G) E5…
e:--x----x-x----x-x-x--x-----------------------------|
B:--x----x-x----x-x-x--x-----------------------------|
G:--x----x-x----x-x-x--x-----------------------------|
D:--2----2-2----2-2-2--2-----------------------------|
A:--2----2-2----2-2-2--2-----------------------------|
E:--0----0-0----3-0-3--0-----------------------------|
    I’m gonna   see my friend…
