CORTEZ THE KILLER
Em7
He came dancing across the water
D
with his galleons and guns,
Am7
lookin' for the new world
and the palace in the sun.
On the shore lay Montezuma
with his coca leaves and pearls;
in it's house he often wandered
with the secrets of the worlds.
And his subjects gathered round him,
like a leaves around the tree,
in their clothes of many colors
for the angry gods to see.
And the women all were beautiful
and the men stood straight and strong;
they offered life in sacrifice
so that others could go on.
Hate was just a legend
and war was never known;
people worked together
and they lifted many stones.
And they carried them to the flatlands,
but they died along the way,
and they built up with their bare hands
what we still can't do today.
And I know she's living there,
and she loves me to this day;
I still can't remember when
or how I lost my way.
He came dancing across the water,
Cortez, Cortez.
What a killer.

([email protected])Tuning :
---------
For this song you need a double dropped D tuning (Neil's favourite
alternative tuning).
To get this, just tune both E strings down a tone (a whole step) so they
both end up at D.
Check them with the 'normal' D string to check they're in tune.Chord Shapes :
--------------
DADGBD DADGBD DADGBD
222000 000230 x02010
Em7 D5 Am11
The sequence is : one bar of Em7, one bar of D5, two bars of Am11.
Keep repeating over and over .....
There are a lot of little variations you can try - one thing he tends to
do on the live versions is hammer on to the Em7 shape like this :
D---0------0----------------
B---0------0-----------------
G---0------0----------------
D---0h2----2-------------------
A---0h2----2------------------
D---0h2----2-------------------
You could also hammer on the note on the B string for the Am7 chord :
D----0----0------0----0-----
B----0h1--1------0h1--1---------
G----0----0------0----0-----
D----2-------2------------
A----0-------0------------
D-----------------------
Experiment with your own variations on these chords.
When soloing he also goes for harmonics on the live versions - try harmonics
on the top 4 strings (DGBD) at the 5th and 7th frets.
Have fun !
Howard
