Phil Phillips/Cat Power – Sea of Love (Tabs)

Phil Phillips/Cat Power – Sea of Love (Tab)

I first heard Sea of Love by Phil Phillips The Twilights when Cat Power covered it. I worked from the Phil Phillips version for this arrangement, but I’m sure some of the Cat Power snuck in.

Intro: I’ve shortened the intro and thrown in a few twiddles. There’s plenty you can do in this section to make it your own.

Verse: The verse melody is sparse but very effective. I didn’t want to add too much and dilute it. But it is on the scant side on the ukulele.

Chorus: In the chorus, the melody goes from scant to barely existing. Cat Power ditches it entirely in her version. Which is a way you can go in your version. It only crops up once in this arrangement.

Solo: I love the chord progression in this song, and I wanted the solo to emphasise it. So the solo mostly just uses notes from the chords. As always, don’t feel you have to copy this version.
