Licks & Riffs : Verve - Bitter Sweet Symphony

Report Error

Verve's 'Bitter Sweet Symphony' is one of the most memorable violin riffs of recent years. It's based on the following chord pattern:



D
Am
C
F




We're in D major, so the unusual element here is the minor chord on the Dominant A - which would usually be A major.

Verve




Pick out notes of these chords in staccato fashion and you get a good Verve-esque sound:

Verve




or:

Verve




Lyrics

'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony this life
Trying to make ends meet, you're a slave to the money then you die
