Angie Lyrics

Angie, Angie
When will those clouds all disappear?
Angie, Angie
Where will it lead us from here?

With no loving in our souls
And no money in our coats
You can’t say we’re satisfied

But Angie, Angie
You can’t say we never tried

Angie, You’re beautiful
But ain’t it time we said goodbye
Angie, I still love you
Remember all those nights we cried?

All the dreams we held so close
Seemed to all go up in smoke
Let me whisper in your ear

Angie, Angie
Where will it lead us from here?

Angie, don’t you weep
All your kisses still taste sweet
I hate that sadness in your eyes

But Angie, Angie
Ain’t it time we said goodbye?

With no loving in our souls
And no money in our coats
You can’t say we’re satisfied

But Angie, I still love you, baby
Everywhere I look I see your eyes
There ain’t a woman that comes close to you
Come on baby dry your eyes

But Angie, Angie
Ain’t it good to be alive?

Angie, Angie
You can’t say we never tried

Guitar Lessons

Angie – Step 1 (Free Preview)

In the first step of how to play Angie, we look at how to strum the verse and chorus.

Use the TAB loops to practice each section individually.

Go to Angie step 1.

Angie – Step 2

In this step, we learn the M8 and Intro. The M8 has two examples to practice along to the loop but you could make up your own as well.

The intro should be played exactly like the original recording as it is more of a composed part.

Go to Angie step 2.

Angie – Step 3

Let’s play the complete song from beginning to end.

Use the video of me and the singer to play along with. There is also a chart to follow.

Go to Angie step 3.

Angie – Step 4

As you already know how to play the song now, let’s start learning from the song.

First up, let’s learn the vocal melody and the scale upon which it is built.

Go to Angie step 4.

Angie – Step 5

More A Minor Pentatonic shapes in this step as we learn the Dm and Cm shape as well as repeat the Am shape at fret 12.

Of course, we also look at how the verse and chorus melody use it as we play in all shapes.

Go to Angie step 5.

Angie – Step 6

Let’s work out a 2nd guitar part for the verse of Angie. As one guitar is already playing big chords, this part can be more free, even improvised.

Before you let go and improvise, start by learning the TAB, focusing on how the A Minor Pentatonic is used.

Go to Angie step 6.

Angie – Step 7

In this step, let’s do to the chorus what we just did to the verse.

Use these ideas as your starting point before developing them yourself. If you can’t come up with anything, move these ideas to other shapes.

Go to Angie step 7.

Angie – Step 8

In this final step, we play together as if we were a band.

Make it sound nice by playing melodies in between vocal lines and chords in different shapes to me.

Go to Angie step 8.

Angie’s chord progression constantly strives to go back to Am, which is chord VI. This makes the song in the key of Am.

All chords are very common, open position chords. The melody uses the minor pentatonic exclusively.
