Really surprised to find the new index has not a single Beach Boys song in it, well time to rectify that little error.
We shall start with the easiest Beach Boys song there is and that is........

This one
D:----------------------------------------
A:------2---3---2--------2---3------------
E:---3---------------3-----------2--------

G D G
Well I walked up to her and I asked her if she wanted to dance

D:----------------------------------------
A:---2---3---2-------2---3---2------------
E:---------------3------------------------

G D G
She looked awful nice, and so I hoped she might take a chance

D:----------------------------------------
A:---2---3---2-------2---3---2------------
E:---------------3------------------------

C G C G
When we danced I held her tight, and then I walked her home that night

G D G
And all the stars were shining bright and then I kissed her

D:----------------------------------------
A:---2---3---2-------2---3---2------------

Each time I saw her I couldn't wait to see her again

D:----------------------------------------
A:---2---3---2-------2---3---2------------
E:---------------3------------------------

G D G
I wanted to let her know that I was more than a friend

D:----------------------------------------
A:---2---3---2-------2---3---2------------
E:---------------3------------------------

C G C G
I didn't know just what to do, so I whispered "I love you"

G D G
And she said that she loved me too, and then I kissed her

D:----------------------------------------
A:---2---3---2-------2---3---2------------
E:---------------3------------------------

C C6 Cmaj7 C6 C
I kissed her in a way that I'd never kissed a girl before

A7 A7 D7
I kissed her in a way that I hoped she'd like for evermore

G D G
I knew that she was mine so I gave her all the love that I had

D:----------------------------------------

G D G
Then one day she'll take me home to meet her mom and her dad

D:----------------------------------------
A:---2---3---2-------2---3---2------------
E:---------------3------------------------

C G C G
And then I'll ask her to be my bride, and always be right by my side

G D G
I felt so happy that I almost cried, and then I kissed her

D:----------------------------------------
A:---2---3---2-------2---3---2------------
E:---------------3------------------------

D G
and then I kissed her

D:----------------------------------------
A:---2---3---2-------2---3---2------------
E:---------------3------------------------

D G
and then I kissed her

The unusual chords in this are, and there are only two non standards open chords C6 and Cmaj7
played open they are

C6
x32210

Cmaj7
x32000

If you want to play this using barre chords

Cmaj7
x35453

C6 (this is a bit of a stretch)
x37553

You can finish the song by continually singing the last line until you expire or just hit a nice big G chord, probably better than the first option.
Hope you enjoy playing this.

For those who have trouble with the C6 either way, you could try x35555.....or x05555, or, alternatively, you could put an Am7 in there....

For C6, you'd need the 1st 3rd 5th and 6th notes in the scale of C, which are C(I) E(III) G(V) & A(VI)....

For Am7, you'd need the I. bIII, V and bVII in the scale of A, which are, respectively, A C E & G.....so the same four notes are used in both chords.....

:D :D :D

Wow! Thanks Rodders! And I say wow because this song was the first single I ever bought. (Showing my age!) But it was the original version by the all girl group The Crystals, titled "Then He Kissed Me". Produced by Phil Spector, it established the "Wall of Sound" and even at my tender age, it absolutely knocked me out!! It's a double pleasure because I love the Beach Boys . . . so bring 'em on.

Can't wait to give this one a go.

Phil Spector, currently free on $1 million bail, had been scheduled to stand trial on April 24, 2006. It was announced April 25, 2006 that due to scheduling conflicts, the judge involved has postponed the date of the trial until January 16, 2007. Spector additionally faces a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Lana Clarkson's mother, Donna Clarkson, but it won't go ahead until after the criminal trial proceedings. [8]
