Hall & Oates – Rich Girl (Chords)

Hall & Oates – Rich Girl (Chords)

Since Garfunkel and Oates just released a new album I thought it was high time I did a tune from Kate Micucci’s first band: Hall and Oates.

Unlike Micucci’s later work, the song has some tricky chord moves. The hardest part is the quick Gm7 – Am7 – Bmaj7 move in the verses. If you’re having trouble with that you can skip the Gm7 – Am7 bit and play the easier 3210 version of Bmaj7.

Suggested Strumming

You can use this strum through most of the song:

d – d – d u d u

Chorus: Main strum once per chord.

Verse: One strum each on the passing chords (Gm7 – Am7 and Bb – C). Then the main strum twice on everything else. Here’s how that sounds:

Last Chorus: There are some passing chords here too e.g. Dm – C on “won’t get you too far” and “You say”.

Not So Twiddly Bit

Rich Girl has a classic one note solo. You just slide up to the F and you’re done for notes. To play it I use the strum blocking method for the attack it gives. But you could also use a pick for this part.

    Very nice as always, I’m in the middle of learning Maneater on the uke. This one goes on the list.
    This funky version of ‘Can’t go for that’ is still my favourite though:
