    Pretender

    Foo Fighers


    This is a simplified version of the song that I created for n 8-year-old student. It's played on just the 6th string. Instead of chord names, only the 6th string fret number is provided.

    Playing a bass line on the 6th string is the easiest way to play a song on guitar--perfect for total beginners or kids who want to sing and play at the same time.


     

    Intro: / 5 - - - / - - - - / - - - - / - - - - /

               / 10 - - - / - - - - / 1 - - - / - - - - /

     

    5 (4)              

    Keep you in the dark

                         10 (2)    1 (2)

    You know they all    pretend

    5 (4)

    Keep you in the dark

                 10 (2)    1 (2)

    And so it all     began

    5 (4)

       Send in your skeletons

                                                10 (2)    1 (2)

    Sing as their bones go marching in       again

    5 (4)

      The need you buried deep

                                               10 (2)        1 (2)

    The secrets that you keep are ever ready.  Are you ready?

     

    5 (4)

      I'm finished making sense, done pleading ignorance

               10 (2)    1 (2)

    That whole    defense

    5 (4)

       Spinning infinity, boy, The wheel is spinning me

           10 (2)            1 (2)

    It's never-ending, never-ending

      10 (2 walkup)

    Same old story

     

    Chorus:

        5 (4)

    What if I say I'm not like the others?

                                                            (10) (2)   

    What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays? You're the pretender

         1 (2)

    What if I say that I'll never surrender?

         5 (4)

    What if I say I'm not like the others?

                                                            (10) (2)   

    What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays? You're the pretender

         1 (2)

    What if I say that I'll never surrender?

     

    / 5 - - - / x2

     

    5 (4)

      In time or so I'm told

                                       10 (2)    1 (2)

    I'm just another soul for sale, oh well

    5 (4)

      The page is out of print, we are not permanent

              10 (2)        1 (2)

    We're temporary, temporary

      10 (2 walkup)

    Same old story

     

    Chorus

     

    / 10 - - - / - - - - /

    / 5 - - - / x4

     

    5 (20)

    I'm the voice inside your head

    You refuse to hear

    I'm the face that you have to face

    Mirrored in your stare

    I'm what's left, I'm what's right

    I'm the enemy

    I'm the hand that will take you down

    Bring you to your knees

    So who are you?

    Yeah, who are you?

    Yeah, who are you?

    Yeah, who are you?

     

    5 (4)              

    Keep you in the dark

                         10 (2) 1 (2)

    You know they all pretend

     

    Chorus x2

     

    / 10 - - - / - - - - /

     

    5 (6)

    So who are you?

    Yeah, who are you?

    Yeah, who are you?

     

    End on 5
