Looks like I’m going to be doing a Beirut on the Dent May album, The Good Feeling Music of….
The album version of Meet Me in the Garden has the uke turned down and guitar and Gainsbourg-ness turned up compared to the demo version but with the 6th and major 7 chords it still keeps a very island theme.
Suggested Strumming Pattern
For the Eb6 and B7M chords:
d – x u d – x u x u x u d u d u
The x’s are chnks (bring the underside of your strumming hand down on the strings to mute them).
For ‘Out by the pond…':
d – x – u d u
for Eb6 and F6 and just d u d u … for the G.
