I've played guitar for a while and my 2 year old loves this song, so I want to be able to play it for him:

[forbidden link]

If I had time to listen to the song with my guitar in my hands, I know I could figure it out quickly. But, with a full time job and a 2 year old and other stuff I haven't been able to find time to figure it out.

It looks like he moves between E and B (or was it B and E) to start with. But the few times I've tried to play it on my guitar it doesn't sound right. The only tab that a google search turned up doesn't look to be right at all.

If anyone could just post the chords for the verse, chorus, and bridge, I would really appreciate it!

Thanks!

edit - OK. Apparently these forums don't like youtube links. If you go to youtube, look for "Song About Elmo Adam Sandler." Note that I'm not looking for the similarly named "Elmo's Song."

Any takers? I'm playing "Mr. Mom" all weekend while my wife is out of town, so I'd love to be able to pull this song out of my back pocket if the moment calls for it!

SONG: Song About Elmo
ARTIST: Adam Sandler

Thanks!

I can't tab it out right now, but I could try and work something out in a few hours time, if no one else is able to do it at the moment? It won't take long to work out

That would be great! Thanks!

Here you go, let me know what you think. I was going to try and just make a simple chord tab, but there are so many little changes that it was just easier to just tab it out and it sounds better. Might take a few minutes to work it all out, but i'm pretty sure this is quite accurate, palm muting makes it sound like the recording too. Hope this helps, if it's too tricky I can make something a little easier, and just put some chords over the lyrics
