The Lancashire Hotpots – He’s Turned Emo (Chords)

The Lancashire Hotpots – Oh No, He’s Turned Emo (Chords)

After some Manglish from Zee Avi, here’s some Lanclish from the Lancashire Hotpots. If you’re planning on going to see the Hotpots on their Northern tour you’re in for an extra treat. They’re being supported by the Re-entrants (find the dates here)

Suggested Strumming

Dead easy song, this one. There are only two chords. And this strum will see you through.

d – d u – u d –

Really, that strum works for just about every song.

If you want to add an extra bit of fanciness to the chords, add a few G diminished chords at the start of the G7 bars.

Twiddly Bits

Even if you’re not interested in playing this song, it’s well worth learning this little lick. It’s a standard.

    todd: And there was me thinking the Lancastrianisms would befuddle the Americans.

    I can’t seem to wrap my head around songs like this, where the chords are different than the vocals. Any help?

    haha no they probably don’t support Burnley (if question is asking whether they support the football team) although this could be an untruth and will ask! And yes they are from ‘Tellins :D
