Demo Chords & Pdf

In this one from Bob Seger you're goning to use the following chords:

  • G
  • Am
  • D
  • Em
  • A7
  • A#

This song is often joined as the 2nd song in a duo of two songs with Travelin Man being the lead song and then with a riff, blend into this one. I talk about this in the full lesson, but as a standalone song, you can just start it as you see me do here.

The rhythm here is a pretty simple root up down up and repeat as you move through the chords.

You can also add in a modified picking break in this one as you'll see me do for a few bars with is mainly just a series of hammer-ons.

Near the end of the song  it hangs out on the G chord for a few bars with a slight hammer-on onto the B string on the 3rd fret and then a bit of a riff can be added to end the song.

Bob Seger Beautiful Loser Lyrics

He wants to dream like a young man
With the wisdom of an old man
He wants his home and security
He wants to live like a sailor at sea

Beautiful loser - where you gonna fall?
You realize - you just can't have it all

He's your oldest and your best friend
If you need him - he'll be there again
He's always willing to be second best
A perfect lodger - a perfect guest

Beautiful loser - read it on the wall
And realize - you just can't have it all
You just can't have it --- all - you just can't have it all
Oh, oh, can't have it all
Try you can try but you can't have it all --- ah yeah

He'll never make any enemies- enemies no
He won't complain if he's caught in a freeze
He'll always ask - he'll always say please

Beautiful loser - never take it all
'Cause it's easier - it's faster when you fall
You just don't need it all
Oh oh - you just don't need it all
