Basket Case LYRICS & CHORDS:

VERSE 1
E5 B5 C#5 G#5
Do you have the time to listen to me whine
A5 E5 B5 About nothing and everything all at once.
E5 B5 C#5 G#5 I am one of those melodramatic fools
A5 E5 B5 Neurotic to the bone no doubt about it.
CHORUS 1 A5 B5 E5 Sometimes I give myself the creeps
A5 B5 E5 Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
A5 B5 E5 D5 C#5 It all keeps adding up, i think I'm cracking up
A5 B5 Am I just paranoid? Or am I just disturbed

BRIDGE 1 E5 B5* C#m B5* x2

VERSE 2
E B C#m G#5 I went to a shrink to analyze my dreams

A E B So quit my whining cause it's bringing her down.
CHORUS 2

How to read these chord schemes

1 - chord name, 2 - chord designation, 3 - chord scheme

Chord name

There is the name of a chord before the symbols. If it's "*" added to a name, it means that this chord is played in different positions during the song.

Chord designation

There are 6 symbols in a designation, read it from left to right. The first symbol defines the thickest string (6th string), the second symbol defines 5th string and so on.

"0" means open string

"x" means this string isnt played

"Number" means number of a fret.

Example:

x02220

6th string isnt played
5th string is open
4th string is played on 2nd fret
3rd string is played on 2nd fret
2nd string is played on 2nd fret
1st string is open

Chord scheme

Imagine that you are looking at the fret while playing guitar - the closest string to your eyes is the 6th, the thickest string. There are 6 horizontal lines defines strings, the upper one is the thinnest string (1st string).
And there are 4 lines defined frets - no exact frets numbers defined.
In some schemes there is a thick line on the left - it defines the nut.

  • "0" means open string
  • "x" means this string isnt played
  • Fat dots mean fingers positions

Example:

G5 355xxx
