Good work here. Thanks to all involved.
A question or two:

The Sun Is Shining Down, I presume the chords outlined are played arpeggio. Is that right? Or are they just an intune chord progression?
I'm a beginner guitarist (of only a few months) and having trouble making it sound like it should. Any dropped tuning involved?

Also (Bbm) what does that equate to? B minor?

Grazel, I'm a beginning guitar player as well. Take a look at chordbook.com and go to the guitar chord section and you will find what you are looking for.

As soon as I find the time, I will tab out Mississippi, War, 6 ways, tragic, and everything good is bad.

Nice guitar story...I was at the Gibson Guitar Factory in Memphis, TN waiting in the shop there before my tour and some dude starting playing a very familiar tune, and because it was so out of context I couldnt place it but finally realized it was War. MOFRO fans are everywhere.

Keep tabbing, Keep Groovin

Just checking to see if anyone has worked out any more tabs/chords. We're getting 3-5 searches per day for tabs and/or chords (we're in the #1 Google spot). According to my web stats, most find this post; some stay for several minutes and some are gone in less than a minute--I'm assuming this latter group doesn't see what they're looking for.

To my knowledge, this is the only place they're going to find any, so I thought I'd check with y'all to see if there's anything new afloat.

I will try to please the masses and do some work with my guitar over the thanksgiving break.

Orange Blossoms...

D-C-G

If you can figure out the general rhythm of the song, you will hear it.

I will put as much detail in them as possible.

Everything good..., six ways, and War have a similiar position on the fretboard.

UHollis,

I believe this is the site you may have been on:

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/jj_grey_and_mofro_tabs.htm

There are 21 guitar/chord tabs to Mofro Music. I've been using it quite a bit to figure out alot on the keyboard. I have On Palastine, Blackwater, Everybody's all out on sheet music for piano. When I get the time, which is what's been standing in my way lately, I will try and post it on here or get it to Clay to post.

I almost have Brighter Day's done, just alot harder to get done with the less chords and more single notes. But I will get it one of these days. It's my favorite and I work on it everyday to say the least.

Thanks for the input Yankee, I'll try out those chords and see how they work. I had posted different ones on the other topic - mofro tabs. Check out what I have for EGIB and tell me what you think.

F - Eb - Bb and the reverse like you have with yours for the Everything Bad is Good - Bb - Eb - F.

No problem NC, thanks for the input. After tabbing all of these songs, I always appreciate it when someone has a correction or question on it so I can go back and make sure I have it correct. I remember tabbing out EGIB and thinking it was E, D, A, also until for some reason I decided to go a half step down and all of a sudden it sounded dead on. Alot of JJ's music is easy to tab that way by just finding the Root Key and just messing around with the I-IV-V and in EGIB case the I-III-V. Other than that, the transitions and solos are the only parts that vary from those chords.

Hey DT, yankee, junior, earl, et al. Sorry for the delay in getting back with you guys on all this. I've been busy, sick, pre-occupied, sick again, and going around in circles chasing my tail.

Also I've been wanting to go through all the proper channels to make sure that the powers that be are cool with what we're doing. Thank you to Delerious Tyme for working on things, and for asking Danny if it was all cool and to Danny for getting back with us. But since Danny is gone (but not forgotten!) I figured it would be best for me to get something from mgt. that I can put in a file.

It's gonna take some work for me to organize all these for you. I'm very glad to do it, I think it's gonna be much easier on all y'all to find things and it will be an awesome enhancement to the site. But I didn't want to put all that work in and then get some sort of cease and desist down the line.

Not that JJ would come after us or anything, but as y'all know there are copyright issues with tabs/chords that some artists/labels take more seriously than others.

So--my fault--I finally got around to going through the proper channels and I just got an email that said we could rock and roll (bad pun.) I've now got all the o-fficial approvals and such and JJ is cool with it all.

DT sent me a song a few weeks back for a trial post. I've now put it onto a page. Dew Drops tabs It seems to me that when I put it on the page it screwed up the spacing of the notes...but since I don't know jack on the subject I need y'all's input. Then DT and I will have to coordinate on how to get it to work.

I also set up a template of a main page for tabs. Take a look...is this how y'all see this working? Tabs/chords main page If there's another way, I'm all ears! As for when anyone has new ones to add, I think our best bet will be to have y'all email them to me, or I can set up a form...but I'll have to look into that further to see if it'll work.

Hollyperk

It's played in the key of G.

Then it uses the I-IV-V so you will transition or bridge with the C and D chords.

To play it exactly like JJ does, you need to know the pentatonic scale of G on the guitar. Mess around with that and you will find the right notes to play as you scale in the key of G.

Here's a couple that I fart around with:

Palestine:
Eminor, D, Amin, Emin.

Em
That Stormy Morning
D
Felt Like A Dream
Am
He Told Me Things
Em
That He Had Seen

Lazy fo:
I had to transpose it to E. Basically back and forth between E7 and A7, and the middle 'drop note' is a G.

Pray for Rain:
E7, G7, A7
This song sounds best using open E, then bar chords for the rest.


That Boy:
tricky rhythm, but that cool riff is all done with open a-major and e-major. I've never written out tabs, that's probably what it would take to do it justice, but the chorus is
G
that boy don't love you

A E
He's Afraid of you

The part where the lyrics are "sugar wouldn't..." stays in E through the line, then goes back to the A/E riff.

All pretty simple chord progressions, but good freakin' luck making it sound as good as JJ.

Tox,

I think you are off a step on the Pray for Rain. Drop down a full step to D - F - G. or D7 - F7 - G7. I'm pretty sure that is right since JJ uses a G harp on it. Try it and let me know what you think.

You are right on the other three that you posted from what I can see. The On Palastine I have exactly note for note on the piano if anyone wants it, let me know. It's really simple, other than just playing the chords. Em - D - Am - Em

Whoo are you cats on a roll. Tox I was afraid of that. Same thing happens on the link I put above. I'm gonna try something different there first. Meanwhile DT sent me some others to try. I had bloody jury duty today, on top of everything else, so I'm playing catch-up again.

Don't forget there's like 2 more posts with tabs and chords on it.

Amongst all the things here I missed a new member. Welcome hollyperk716. Glad to have ya. I don't know nuthin about no tabs and no chords. But these folks on this thread have some serious fun with it, so you did the right thing...just holler out and somebody'll holler back.

I messed with the tabs on this page Dew Drops tabs

I brought the text up a couple points and it lined everything up better. But I still had to go in and line up several of them. I'm concerned at what might happen if I'm a space off.

DT, try this on one of the text docs: set it up as one long line. Just put a # where you want the line to break. I'll email you on Tues and explain further. That may solve the problem (part of which it takes me a few minutes to go onto the page and re-space--if we were talking a couple pages here it wouldn't be a big deal but we're talking lots of pages.)

DT-
Right on about the key of PFR - I was going by ear/memory and although the progressions are correct, I again transposed to E7. I never played alongside the music, I (wrongly) assumed E 'cause the intro riff just sounded like it was played through open strings - probably tuned his geetar down to D.
Sorry 'bout that!

Tox- No problem, anytime. I've been tabbing out all of the songs now for quite a while. Anytime someone comes up with something different, I welcome it. It makes me go back and make sure I had it right in the first place. Like with the song Whitehouse, I haven't posted the tabs to it because I've tried playing it with the album version and with a live version that they played at a concert I was at in Phoenix and it seems like they changed keys. So I've been playing along with it for quite some time now trying to figure out the best way to tab it. If you have any songs that you have tabbed out or are looking for some tabs to thier songs, let me know and I will give you what I have and you can play it on your own and see if it turns out right. So far I've been pretty lucky with my tabs that most of if not all of them come back with aprroval from the rest of the players on here, but I know I easily make mistakes, so the more we all have playing and tabbing, the more accurate we will be. Thanks again and welcome to the board. Always good to have another tabber/player on the board and you can't beat a Mofro Fan, they are the best.

Clay,

No problem, like I said in the email I sent you, I think the spacing is pretty close, closer than I thought it would be. We can mess around with it and try to get it the way we want it, but no worries on the timing of it. It will all come together when it does. Thanks for getting that all together, I think it looks great and will be a nice addition to the website as it grows. I think I know what you are talking about with you post as for the line breaks and all, I'll try that to and see how it works.

Also, I have all my tabs in word format and the spacing on them is exact, so I've just been transferring that into notepad for you to put on here. Let me know if you want the word docs as well. With the pop ups, is it very hard to make it pop up to a word document? Maybe that would be easier and not only that, but it would give those looking at it an easy way to print it out as well. Just a thought, but not sure on the html code and it's efficiency. Don't want you missing jury duty because you are working on code for tabs. Last thing we need it Clay in jail. Just kidding.. Thanks again Clay, you're the best.

No worries on the jury duty. Didn't get picked. Must've been the drool and the crowing like a rooster. What they didn't know is that's normal for me!

Reading thru your post gave me an idea DT. If you PDF'd the word doc it would be an exact duplicate of it. Then, instead of the links on this page Tabs/chords main page going to another html page (like Dew Drops is set up) it would open a PDF in a new window. Eazy peazy. Prints just like you'll want too.

Any of y'all have Adobe Writer. I only have Reader. If not, I don't think it's that expensive if you wanted to all pitch in on it.

Lemmee know what y'all think of that.

Clay,

Coming thru once again, even better! I'm kicking myself for not thinking of that myself. It seems like everything we do at work our IT guy is like, turn it into PDF. I have all the resources to do that so I will get you a few here in a little bit and we can see how it works. Don't worry about buying writer. If anyone has something that they need turned into PDF for the website, let me know and we will exchange emails, send the document and I'll turn it into PDF, it's real simple.

Nice job again Clay, I'll send you an email here shortly with a few so you can see how it works.

ADMINISTRATOR'S NOTE:
ALL TABS AND CHORDS ARE NOW COMPILED ON ONE PAGE HERE


YAY! We now have ONE page, with easy-to-print PDFs no less, with all the tabs and chords instead of them being spread across 4 threads.

Thanks to all of you for contributing your time and efforts. HUGE THANKS TO DELERIOUS TYME for setting up all the pages and doing a tremendous amount of work. Without him I couldn't have done it.

(OH...the new page also has a navigation bar over on the left.)

One thing I would love to have from Art are the horn charts he has for Brighter Days. I love the addition of the horns at the end of that song, not to mention being infatuated with the song itself, but the horns at the end make me wanna get up and dance everytime... Everyone I work with knows it because I whistle it practically non stop every day...

Hi y'all....i am new to this message board, but a HUGE fan of mofro! I've been searching all over the net for the piano sheet music for any mofro song I could find, especially brighter days! and i ran across all you wonderful people. i've tried to figure it out from the guitar tabs, but saw Delerious Tyme's post about having some of them already....any chance they will be posted to the "tabs and chords" page??
much love to the mofro family!

Welcome to the site Tbone.

There is no sheet music for Brighter Days that I know of, but I do know how to play it note for note on the piano. As you can see, the tabs have taken up quite a bit of my time and I have not had the chance to put Brighter Days on actual sheet music. If I ever do, I don't think we would post it on here for the sake of the Band and JJ. It is his music and if anyone should benefit from having the sheet music to it, it should be him. We have talked to the Tour Manager about posting the tabs and charts, which he found to be ok. As for actual sheet music, that is another story. If you want, email me and when I get a chance, I will email you how to play it and get you started. Once you know the first couple of variations of the verses, it is all gravy from there. My email address is on the bottom of the tabs.

Hey hey tbone26...welcome! I see Sunshine, giggles and Delerious Tyme have served as the welcoming committee in my absence. (Sniffle...I'm not needed anymore)

Glad you found us. Several fans have made contributions of their time and talents to this subject, probly the most DT, who's compiled everything and PDF'd them and I'll say again that I couldn't have done the tabs/chords page without him. I'm pretty proud of it--and I don't play; I don't even know what all that shit means!

Anyway...glad you're here. Great bunch of diverse people with a love of live music and a devotion to JJ Grey & Mofro here. And as giggles can attest an upgraded intranet search feature that I just added a couple weeks ago that does a pretty fine job.

gigs...did I just give any secrets away or did you want everybody to think that you went thru 29 pages--750 topics--to answer tbone's question? And if you did, and you have even MORE time to totally kill, figure out how many posts there have been since the site began. Ick, I always HATED algebra. But I guess if we have 750 topics that would be (750)(X) where X=# of posts. No, there's no prizes for figuring it out, sorry. (Well, we'll call you names like geek and loser and stuff...that'll be your prize!)
