Paramore "Brick by Boring Brick" Guitar Chords and Lyrics

Although Paramore have been together for about six years, with three albums under their belts, "The Only Exception" ( which I worked out last month and posted to my Pop Songs guitar chords page ) was the first of their songs I'd ever heard, and it pretty much got me hooked!

On "Brick by Boring Brick", also from the latest album "Brand New Eyes", Hayley Williams shows that as well as the silky, sultry vocals she treated us with on "The Only Exception", she can really rock out the vocals when she wants to. It's a great rock song, I need to dig deeper into this album and the band's older work.

The song is in the key of A major, but I've transposed it down to G ( partly as this creates an easier set of chords, but mainly because I couldn't reach the high notes! ). If you want to play along with the song on CD or on the video below, you'll need to put a capo on the 2nd fret to bring the key back up from G to A.

The chords ( after transposition ) are Em, C, G and D through most of the song, with an A minor thrown in during the bridge. If you want to play without the capo, these will be F#m, D, A, E and B minor.

My interpretation of "Brick by Boring Brick" is now on Rock Songs Guitar Chords page of my website, at the link below:

When you've had a few practice runs, try playing along with the song above, or at YouTube - Paramore "Brick by Boring Brick". Remember that I've transposed the song from A down to G, so you'll need to either transpose back up to the A major set of chords, or just put a capo on the 2nd fret.
