Carried by the seaside swell of Danny Federici's accordion and Springsteen's crystalline lead-guitar intro, this elegiac spiritual descendant of the Beach Boys' "Surfer Girl" remains one of his most moving songs. Springsteen has called it a "love note and a goodbye song" to his musical home of Asbury Park – its imagery of "carnival life on the water" is an early display of ample storytelling and scene-setting gifts. Its depiction of Seventies Asbury is certainly romanticized: "No one would ever go under the boardwalk," said then-E Street drummer Vini "Mad Dog" Lopez. "There were rats under the boardwalk!"

Really relaxing and enjoyable bass part. I played vocals on hard while plucking and the phrases were hard enough, but I suspect they'd be brutal on expert. You really cut us singers no breaks when you chose to not use a single talkie! :o

 

Interestingly, during the refrain, the game would swap me from melody to harmony half-way through because of the octaves, but it (very luckily) doesn't matter because I was still able to get Double Awesomes simply singing the same part and letting the game decide which octave to fill. Heh.

 

Thanks for this! Now where is Rosalita? :D

Gracias! I have to thank Bsbloom. All I wanted was a guitar chart but he went above and beyond and bought a midi for it. He obviously loved the song as much as me I hope you all will to :)
