    Can anyone tell me what is being played when Chrissy sings "Hey oh, way to go Ohio" ? I think its off a Bm but its too far down in the mix for me to pick up whats happening.

    Tony Butler did a great job of the bass line in that song! I use to play that one ina cover band, and learned it exaclty as it's played on the record. If you could send me a PM to remind me, I'll re-aquaint myself with the part and tell you.

    I play this song in my current band. During that part, I'm playing A to F#. Then I slide up to the F#,G, Ab on the "G" string immediately followed by the open "E" to form that nice chord.

    Since it's in E and you have an F#, that "Ab" is really G#, the major 3rd.
