Life By The Drop- Part 5

Final Chorus

The final chorus delivers a one-two punch as we throw in a couple of guitar licks in between the vocal delivery.

F#m               (add lick here)    
Livin' the dream!
F#m               (add lick here)
My mind stoped achin'!


The song finishes with the refrain:
F#m             D7               E           A
That's how it's happened, livin' Life by the drop
F#m             D7               E           A
That's how it's happened, livin' Life by the drop

18 And Life- Skid Row

Skid Row was one of the last hair metal bands to hit the mainstream before grunge took over in the early ’90s. They were also arguably the last of such bands to have any originality. Their self-titled release used standard metal riffs and simple lyrics, but they broke away from the pop-metal that was going on with thrashy guitars and variances of ’80s metal formats. Their personal differences broke them apart in 1996, and Sebastian Bach went to work on acting, with little success.

Verse Riff

The first three measures really don’t show much difference. The first measure has a hammer-on in it. A hammer-on is when you go from a lower note to a higher note, striking only the first note. Notice that at the top of the measures, chords are shown. The first three measures show the C#m chord and the B chord. All notes should be left ringing.
