    Hello all!

    I am hoping one of the geniuses here can help. I am learning a simple song by The Style Council entitled "You're the best thing"

    For me this has been an ear training episode of sorts and one that I am failing miserably! The opening solo that Paul Weller does is not complicated and I have the first part of it no problem, its the second half, for what ever reason I just can't get it. I briefly had a look online but it seems that all of the tab charts are completely wrong!

    Here is the Video. Can anyone please help me decipher what is going on? It sounds beyond basic, HELP!




    Many thanks !

    I assume your talking about the intro ?

    To my ear , it's a IV , iii , ii , V progression in Emajor
    so the chords are Amaj7 , G#min7 , F#min7 , B7

    the intro he plays is all nice Emaj pentatonic stuff
    (this is same as C# minor pent)

    get your hand into the 9th position
    like your ready to play a C# minor bar chord

    and play (mess around) with ...
    4 11 , 3 9 , 3 11 ,shift to 12th posn
    3 13 , 2 12 ,2 14,1 12,1 14, shift up to 1 16

    (the first number being the string number
    second number is the fret)

    the second half of the intro is all up there
    Have fun ....

    Chorus seems to move into F# major, and uses F#maj7, G#m, and A#maj7.

    Great tune. Long time Weller fan here.

    i got the chorus as
    |F#maj7. |Bmaj7. | x3
    |Amaj7. | Fmaj7 |

    only crucial difference is the Amaj7 in bar 7 of chorus

    yeah nice tune ....
