In nearly all of Joni's piano songs, she'll typically play a Root-5th-Root pattern with her left hand, and play various triads with her right hand. I learned this technique from listening to Todd Rundgren, so it's almost second nature to me now. If you're familiar with this style of playing, this song should be a piece of cake. This pattern continues through the whole song. Play around with different inversions to see what voicings sound best. ----------------------------------- I have to come and see you maybe once or twice a year I think nothing would suit me better than some downtown atmosphere G/E D/E G/E D/E In the dance halls and the galleries G/E D/E G/E D/E Or betting in the OTB C/A G/A C/A G/A Synchronized like magic D/A A D/A A Good friends you and me E/A A E/A A The sun goes down in Jersey E/A A E/A A Rises over Little Italy, we could talk it E/F# A/F# E/F# A/F# 'Til the block gets up E/F# A/F# E/F# A/F# Swapping stories G/E D/E G/E D/E Sitting around in some all night zoo G/E D/E G/E D/E Watching it run like a movie C/A G/A C/A G/A Synchronized like magic D/A A D/A A Good friends you and me D/B No hearts of gold D/A A No nerves of steel D/B D/E No blame for what we can C/A G/A and cannot feel But now it's cloak and dagger Walk on eggshells and analyze Every particle of difference Gets like mountains in our eyes You say "You're unscrupulous!" You say "You're naive!" Synchronized like magic Good friends you and me No hearts of gold No nerves of steel No blame for what we can and cannot feel Sometimes change comes at you like a broadside accident There is chaos to the order Random things you can't prevent There could be trouble around the corner There could be beauty down the street Synchronized like magic Good friends you and me No hearts of gold No nerves of steel No blame for what we can and cannot feel No nerves of steel No hearts of gold No blame for what we can and can't control Good friends you and me Good friends you and me
