Charlie McDonnell – Exterminate, Regenerate (Chords)

Charlie McDonnell – Exterminate, Regenerate (Chords)

My post on the adorable Charlie ‘charlieissocoollike’ McDonnell’s A Song About Acne proved very popular, so I thought I’d follow it up with his latest tune despite the fact I don’t understand a single reference in it. I’ve only watched two episodes of Dr Who (one set in Rome and one with Peter Kay in) and they were both unremittingly dreadful. I didn’t even get that it was a song about Dr Who until he explained it at the end. Turns out I fail at video games as well.

The chords aren’t the standard fare – there’s not an open string in the whole tune.

Suggested Strumming

For the intro:

d – d – x u – u
– u – u – u d –

The verse starts with some single strums then doubles up the tempo with this strumming pattern twice for most of the chords but once each in the E – F# move.

d – x u – u d –
