Not sure about the original version
(never heard it), but the Cake
version is quite easy to play on the guitar
, with the following chords:
At first I was afraid.
I was petrified.
I kept thinking I could never live
Without you by my side.
But then I spent so many nights
Just thinking how you'd done me wrong.
I grew strong.
I learned how to get along.
also follow this chord progression
The bass line
is a lot more intricate, with the bass
of the above chords. Add the trumpets
, and you have a pretty damn good song
For a little bit of trivia
, the beginning of "I Will Survice
" (Am, Dm, C and G) is exactly the same as the main riff
in Guns N' Roses
- Don't Cry
. Who would have thought that's this is a popular chord progression
