    Rope

    Foo Fighters


    This is a simplified version of the song that I created for a 5-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.

    7 (2)                             10 (2)

        This indecision got me climbing up the walls

       7 (2)                             10 (2)

    Been cheating gravity and waiting on the fall

    7 (2)                                        10 (2)

       How did this come over me, I thought I was above it all

    7 (2)                                          10 (2)                  

        Our hope's gone up in smoke, swallow your crown

     

    Pre-Chorus:

    7 (2)               10 (2)

           Choke! On a kiss, thought I'd save my breath for you

    7 (2)                10 (2)                                   

           Choke! On a kiss, thought I'd save my breath for you

     

    Chorus:

    3                            0                       7      5

        Give me some rope I'm coming loose, I'm hanging on you

    3                            0                       7      5

        Give me some rope I'm coming loose, I'm pulling for you now

    3                            0                7                     5

        Give me some rope I'm coming out of my head, into the clear

              3      4    5   6           

    When you    go   I   come loose

     

    / 7 - - - / - - - - / 10 - - - / - - - - / x2

     

    7 (2)                                     10 (2)

        These premonitions got me crying up a storm

    7 (2)                                     10 (2)               

         Leave your condition, this position does no harm
