Looking For An Echo
Ol' 55



The picking pattern over the chords is:
  C                Am           F               G            G7
e--------0-----/-------0-----/-------1-------/-------3-----/-------3----
B----------1---/---------1---/-----1---1-----/-----3---3---/-----6---6--
G-----0------0-/-----2-----2-/---2-------2---/---4-------4-/---4-------4
D---2----------/---2---------/-3-----------3-/-5-----------/-5----------
A-3------------/-0-----------/---------------/-------------/------------
E--------------/-------------/---------------/-------------/------------

C                   Am            F            G7
At daydream junior high school we used to harmonize
C                   Am        F            G7
Me and Frankie and Jimmy and some Italian guy
F                G7          C               Am
We were singing oldies but they were newies then
     F                                G7
And today when I play my old 45's I remember when

We practiced in a subway, in a lobby or a hall
Crowded in a doorway singing "do waps" to the wall
And when we went to a party and they wouldn't let us sing
We'd lock ourselves in the bathroom and nobody could get in


Chorus:
G               C              Am      F             G7
'Cause we were looking for an echo an answer to our sound
   C              Am        F           G      C Am  F  G7
A place to be in harmony a place we'd almost found   ooooh


Bridge:
         F                  G7                 C                C7
And the girls would gather 'round us and our heads would really swell
      F                G7                C              C7
We'd sing songs by the moonglows, the harptones and the dells
     F                          C              Am
And when we sang sincerely, we really sang it high
D7                             F                   G  G7
Even though it was falsetto we almost reached the sky













Verse 3
A7    D             Bm           G A7
We've sung a lot of changes since 1955
      D            Bm               G             A7
And a lot of bad arrangements we've tried to harmonise
    G                   A7         D                Bm
Now they've turned into oldies but they were newies then 
       G                                 A7
And today when I play those old 45's I remember when

         D                    Bm      G            A7
'Cause we were looking for an echo an answer to our sound
  D             Bm         G          A7     D
A place to be in harmony a place we'd almost found

        D              Bm      G7           A7
We were looking for an echo an answer to our sound
  D             Bm         G         A7      D
A place to be in harmony a place we'd almost found

Found..oooh....found...oooh..found (etc.)

Bm G A7 D Bm G A7 Dmaj7

Hiya - Love your work- and I am a newbie - but verse three doesnt sound like the right change up in key - the chords fit nicely in the change up for the outgoing chorus but dont seem to sit well on Verse 3 - happy to be corrected - Cheers

As a newbie still not comfortable with finger-picking, can anyone suggest a strumming pattern that would work well with this song until I can develop a good finger-picking technique ?
