  • The Brothel in Rosenstrasse

    Here's #2! :D :D
    Chord changes are approximate to the words(esp. in the changes from B to G!)

    BROTHEL IN ROSENSTRASSE-M. Moorcock-P. Pavli
    F#m-2-3-4/A-2/E-4/F#m-2-3-4/A-2/E]-Frau
    [F#m]Schmetterling says that[A] all her girls are[E]la-[F#m]dies
    [A] [E]She[F#m] won't hand out keys to
    [A]anyone who's[E]sha-[F#m]dy
    [A] [E]It's all done with[B] taste, you must not seem a wast[G]er or a scoundrel
    [B]She's kind and she's warm, be-[G]lieves in good form
    So don't be hasty!

    [E]Brothel in[B] Rosenstrasse [D]all our girls are[B] clean and game
    [E]Brothel in[B] Rosenstrasse,[D] you don't have to give your right[B] name

    Please don't speak of despair, or anything that's seedy
    Please don't admit your cynical and greedy
    Your manner's refined, your role is clearly defined, and so is the lady's
    The things that you do aren't wicked or rude, because you need them

    Brothel in Rosenstrasse, all our girls are keen to please
    Brothel in Rosenstrasse, at reasonable fees

    F# on out----

    First up, Apologies for the thread Necromancy.

    Just a quick question, would the bass just follow along with the chord progression? For the most part I can follow it, but there are a few parts were it doesn't seem right.

      The intro is in E , so the notes are (as I play them, on my four-srting bass) the open fourth-string (E) and third-string at the seventh fret (E one octave higher).

      I've always thought that the bass is just the root notes. As I listen to it now, it's that way on the verses, but there are some fills in the choruses.

      Never noticed those before!

        Hmm I should try this out on my electric Mandolin....

          But there's no mention of the balloons in the song!
          I vividly remember the (attempted) escapes from Mirenburg in balloons ...

            Thanks DeepFixer

            I thought the F# didn't sound right when I was trying it.

            As for the rest, I'll keep with the root notes until my friends can pick up the guitar parts.
