SITTING STILL (3 Versions here)


SITTING STILL (Version 1)

{note: In this song and many other REM songs, there is an A9 chord.
 This chord can be interchanged with Asus2.  Here is my favorite A9
 position:

  (E) -0-    its just like playing an A chord using a 5th fret
  (B) -0-    barre E chord.  If you move it to the seventh fret,
  (G) -6-    it becomes a B11.  On the 8th fret, its a Cmaj7. On
  (D) -7-    the 10th, its a D9add6.  On the 3rd fret, its a very
  (A) -7-    pretty G6 chord.  On the second, its a neat sounding F#
  (E) -5-    sort-of chord. On the first fret, Its a Mexican sounding
             F chord.}
        

A  BaddE/F# is an easy chord.  It looks like this.  Don't play the A-string.
Obviously, you pick this chord -don't strum, It'll sound sh*tty.

BaddE/F#           BaddE (normal)
(E) -0-             -0-
(B) -0-             -0-           To switch between these chords, move
(G) -2-             -2-           only ONE finger.
(D) -4-             -4-
(A) -x-             -2-
(E) -2-             -x-

See could stop stop it will rid
 E                       BaddE/F#    BaddE

We could gather, throw a fit

 B                            A
Up to buy, Katie buys a kitchen-size, but not me in
 B                            A
Setting trap for love, making a waste of time, sitting still

{same as before}
I'm the sign and you can read.
I'm the sign and you're not deaf.
We could bind it in the cist.
We could gather, throw a fit.

Up to buy, Katie buys a kitchen-size, but not me in
Setting trap for love, making a waste of time, sitting still
I can hear you.  I can hear you.  I can hear you.

This name I got we all agree
See could stop stop it will rid
We could bind it in the cist
We could gather, throw a fit.

Up to buy, Katie buys a kitchen-size, but not me in
Setting trap for love, making a waste of time, sitting still

{same as intro}
I can hear you.  I can hear you.  I can hear you.

You can gather when I talk, talk until you're blue
You could get away from me.  Get away from me.

Up to buy, Katie buys a kitchen-size, but not me
Setting trap for love, making a waste of time, sitting still
I can hear you.  I can hear you.  I can hear you.
I can hear you.  I can hear you.  I can hear you.
Can you hear me?
