Code: Select all

This is in the key of C minor so use a capo on the third fret.
 
Here's an example of how to play Fmaj7b5:

LATHER
(Grace Slick)
 
(Intro)
Am     Fmaj7b5     Am   A9(no 3rd)    Am
 
(Verse)
Am        C        G   
Lather was 30 years old today
 
Em        D        C
They took away all of his toys
 
Am        C        G
His mother sent newspapers clippings to him
 
Em        D        C
About his old friends who'd stop being boys
 
Em        D        F        D
There was Howard C Green just turned 33
 
C        Em        D
His leather chair waits at the bank
 
Em        D        F        D
And Sgt. Dow Jones 27 years old
 
C        Em        D
Commanding his very own tank
 
C        D        Em
But Lather still finds it a nice thing to do
 
C        D        Em
To lie about nude in the sand
 
C        D       E
Drawing pictures of mountains that look like bumps
 
D           Asus2
And thrashing the air with his hands
 
A                G
But wait old Lather's productive you know
 
A        G        A
He produces the finest of sound
 
A                G
Putting drumsticks on either side of his nose
 
A        G        A
Snorting the best licks in town
 
(nose solo)
Am    G    Am    E
 
But that's all over
 
(Intro)
Am     Fmaj7b5     Am   A9(no 3rd)    Am
 
(Verse)
Am        C        G
Lather was 30 years old today   
 
Em        D        C
And lather came foam from his tongue
 
Am        C        G
He looked at me eyes wide and plainly say
 
Em        D        C
Is is true that I'm no longer young?
 
Em        D       F        D
And the children call him famous
 
C    Em    D
What the old men call insane
 
Em        D        F        D
And sometimes he's so nameless
 
C        Em        D
That he hardly know what game to play
 
C
Which words to say
 
C            D            Em
And I should have told him no you're not old
 
C        D        E        D        Asus2
And I should have let him go on smiling baby wide
 
(Ending)
Am    G    Am    E
