Baby Blue by Badfinger


Russell Davis

Recommended Posts

The tab sights are showing three different ways of doing it on key. Open standard tuning, capo at 2nd fret and capo at 4th. Playing it capo'd at the 4th seems easiest for my fingers. I'm just playing for my own amusement on the acoustic. Not worried about the lead at this point. How do you guys play it?

This capo 2 version in E is another option: https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/b/badfinger/baby_blue_crd.htm

 

Good of you to keep Pete Ham and Badfinger's music alive- the tragic story of their meteoric rise and the greed and betrayal of trust by their management is an epic one. Pete would probably be happy just to know people are still doing their songs; I'm sure there's one out there that most of us can do in a style to suit our own.

 

Some of their bigger hits while at Apple Music show definite help from being under the wings of Paul McCartney and George H.

What is 'poof'

 

In light of the discussion on the tragic story of Badfinger, and how songwriter Pete Ham would probably be just as happy to know people were still doing his songs, I had worked up & posted a clip of a song of his, woke up this morning, and realized it was mostly the Maker's Mark in charge of the vocals. . .

I saw the VH-1 documentary on them a while back. It was heartbreaking to say the least. Those guys were dripping with talent.
