No You Girls - Franz Ferdinand

You might well ask what I'm doing working out chords for a Franz Ferdinand song NOW, when I've pretty much ignored them thus far, even when they were winning the 2004 Mercury Prize, "Brit" awards in 2005 for Best British Group and Best British Rock Act, with the "Franz Ferdinand" album also named as NME's Album of the Year.

In truth, I don't really have an excuse. Except maybe that there was such a plethora of good guitar music around those days the band just passed me by. Possibly the label "Dance-Rock" didn't help.

But... good rock guitar songs are becoming thin on the ground these days, and I'm struggling to find good new songs to give the newest batch of learning guitarists a chance of playing their favourite songs early on in the process. I check the US and UK Singles charts regularly, more in hope than expectation, but tonight ( coincidentally the name of their new album! ) I find, among the instantly forgettable and the songs I've already posted, a new entry at #27 in the UK charts for "No You Girls" by Franz Ferdinand. So I think, "can't hurt", and turn to the ever-reliable YouTube. I've been listening to the song all night since, only stopping to pause and check a chord here, a lyric there. The results of my attempts to work out a playable version of the song can be found at the link below:
