    Hey folks,

    I'm new to the forum, the band wants to do Bad Time for being in love. Now I think its pretty simple, but there is no Bass TAB, only guitar chords. Thing is, the chords I'm seeing online, don't match what I'm hearing(every one i'm seeing is the same/wrong progression). Of course guitar player wants to play it the way the internet says...


    Thanks

    I'm sorry to tell you, but that chord chart is incorrect.

    You reversed the F and Dm on Line 2. The Dm comes first, followed by the F.

    Then on Line 3 you go to a F before the G. It is a Dm before the G.

    All choruses need to be corrected in that fashion. The verses looks to be correct (Dm to G throughout the verses).

    Hey I charted that 20 years ago :) off of a cassette tape recorded from the radio.

    I've got the Dm and G's reversed on the tail of the chorus too, I believe

    See how much you've grown as a musician? ;)

    No worries, we've all done it. I just didn't want OP getting more confused.

    Let me delete that original post and I'll put up a corrected version.

    Try this version, with some wording corrected. It's a lot nicer to chart stuff now from an mp3!

    I believe that song should go over well. It's catchy and familiar to many people, but it's not overplayed on the radio like so many other classic rock tunes.

    Of course, it needs to be performed reasonably well. Good harmonies on the chorus will help. I believe on the original you can hear Todd Rundgren singing harmonies.

    Yeah, and vocals(harmonies) are now the biggest hill to climb in my musical venture. Challenge accepted!

    Thanks again
