la vie en rose tab 

this is a long shot but considering the depth of talent here, it might be possible. when I was a little poop my mother used to sing la vie en rose to me, its edith piaf song from the 40's. right before she left and I never saw her again. anyway the song has a place in my jaded crusty soul and I am wondering if anyone might have the tab for it. I think there is sheet music for it but written for piano, (isnt everything) and that doesnt do me much good. I might even pay some ambitious soul to tab it. anyway let me know.

Can't help you there (too lazy) but funny I was gonna mention this exact piece when you asked about 3/4 because I used to play restaurant gigs with a violinist and remember reading the same piece in two different charts....one version in 3/4 the other in 6/8...to make my point about tempo relationships regarding waltz, dotted half vs dotted 8ths etc. that same music can be written in different ways but you must indicate the tempo up top.

RE: la vie en rose tab (in reply to rickm

I love that song... in fact, I really love old french songs from that period (Piaf, Serge Gainsbourg, Georges Brassens, Leo Ferrer... amazing songs!).

Here are the basic chords... you can jazz them up if you wish and try to work a chord/melody version from there... it's a good exercise in order to start arranging things! Then you could do a buleria version of it! :-D


C7 F
Des yeux qui font baisser les miens,
D7 Gm
Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche,
C7 F Cm6
Voila le portrait sans retouche,
D7 C7
De l'homme auquel j'appartiens.


F Fm7
Quand il me prend dans ses bras,
F6
Qu'il me parle tout bas,
Gm7 C7
Je vois la vie en rose.
Gm7 C7 Gm7
Il me dit des mots d'amour,
C7 Gm7
Des mots de tous les jours,
C7 Dm C7
ça me fait quelque chose.
F Fm7
Il est entré dans mon coeur
F6
Une part de bonheur
Bb
Dont je connais la cause.
Bbm F
C'est lui pour moi, moi pour lui dans la vie.
G7 Dm/F# C7
Il me l'a dit, l'a juré pour la vie.
F Fm7
Et, dès que je l'aperçois,
Gm7
Alors je sens en moi
C7 F
Mon coeur qui bat.


C7 F
Des nuits d'amour à ne plus finir,
D7 Gm
Un grand bonheur qui prend sa place,
C7 F Cm6
Les ennuis, les chagrins s'effacent,
D7 C7
Heureuse, heureuse à en mourir.


F Fm7
Quand il me prend dans ses bras,
F6
Qu'il me parle tout bas,
Gm7 C7
Je vois la vie en rose.
Gm7 C7 Gm7
Il me dit des mots d'amour,
C7 Gm7
Des mots de tous les jours,
C7 Dm C7
ça me fait quelque chose.
F Fm7
Il est entré dans mon coeur
F6
Une part de bonheur
Bb
Dont je connais la cause.
Bbm F
C'est lui pour moi, moi pour lui dans la vie.
G7 Dm/F# C7

Et, dès que je l'aperçois,
Gm7
Alors je sens en moi
C7 F
Mon coeur qui bat.

You just got hooked up Rick, thanks avimuno for taking the time to spell that all out. I may have to learn this myself, if I could sing and play that even reasonably well it should seal the deal on any date

I guess this song doesnt need much singing skills... Vicente doesnt sound like a "true singer", more like a guy whispering something (which is good if your spanish is rusty, you can just mumble through the lyrics).

Make sure you change the girl's name accordingly, that alone will dramatically improve your chances

RE: la vie en rose tab (in reply to rickm

yeah no I searched on and off for years. i think chet atkins did a take on it years ago but there isnt a tab for it. you can find chords around in different keys but no tab.

RE: la vie en rose tab (in reply to rickm

I actually tried that last night I downloaded a version and downloaded a chart that shows where the notes are on the guitar and messed with it for a hour. either I got the notes wrong or the version was bad because it ended up sounding like poop.

I don't think it's you Rick. I've had the same problem with every set of chords I have seen for this song. I guess it's all down to our understanding of the way Jazz musician use their chords. I'm finding it better to do my own version - but too busy at present to tab it.

At the end of the day, you have to consider whether you want to play the melody with chords, or melody with bass, or all three, bass, chords and melody. I'm sticking to chords and melody at present.

RE: la vie en rose tab (in reply to rickm

it does seem that most people when they try and recreate it use some jazzy thing that doesnt sell well with me. its their version so they are entitled to do that but i see it more as a semi classical piece. Im going to keep looking becasue i really really want to play this on the guitar

Kees Nipius said he did the first part of the video in his own arrangement and then the second part was like Chet Atkins and that the tab was available. Of course, it was available at a price, but I managed to find one which is free and is a "Power Tab". So you need Power Tab Editor for this.

Anyone who has read this post - it may pay you to try getting Power Tab Editor from the same website I got the tab from. That way, there probably are no strings attached (sorry about the pun - perhaps you need strings).
http://www.acousticpower.com/index.html

The tab is here http://www.acousticpower.com/variousM-Z.html You will see it if you scroll down and find it under Edith Piaf's name. It may give you clues as to how you would like to develop it. Eventually I may tab it my way.
