                Here is a transcription of 'He Said, She Said' by Loudon Wainwright III.
(Possibly the USA's most underated singer songwriter?)
It is transcribed from a TV performance on 'Loudon & Co' transmitted
13 July 1994 here in the UK.

It was played with a capo at the second fret and using barre chords for
the C#m A and B. The A and B chords are played with the E-shape at the 7th
and 9th frets. (? due to the capo?). The C#m is played with an A-minor-shape
at the 4th fret.

There is only one slight complication which I will try and explain which
is marked in the text as 'C riff' because I don't know how else to describe

He starts with a normal three fingered C chord but emphasising the 5th string
and using a little progression down to the 6th string before the next chord
which is the E or B.

So for example the sequence is:

  3[5]    2[5] 0[5] 3[6]   E-chord          3[5] 2[5] 0[5] 3[6]  B-chord
  Please  do   not  talk   softly.    When  carr y    ing  your  stick

Had I known how difficult this was going to be to explain I may never
have started :-) Anyway here we go. Hope you like it.
