Chords Project

Springsteen Chords logoThe main goal in this project is to give you accurate information of how the officially released songs are played on the studio albums. Most of the transcriptions you can find on the net or in books are only an approach to the original songs. Either they are transcribed in the wrong key or a lot of breaks or solos are missing. What is being done here is not to transcribe every solo or fill-in but to list all breaks and main solos, so you can play the main parts of a song. But in lot of songs no guitar is used and in those cases, the chords and maybe the melodies that can be played on guitar have been transcribed.

This is a living database and it'll improve with time. But for this your help is needed. There are so many songs and so much work do to, so there is always the possibility of mistakes. Feel free to let your opinion be heard on the Union Street forum. If a consensus can be reached among the musicians frequenting the Union Street forum, an update will be made. You can also contribute chords that are missing in the collection, or diferent versions of songs. Just use the contact form where you can attach your text file.

It should be noted that the chords and tabs you find here are the work of fans and represent their interpretation of the songs. The copyright of the songs is owned by Bruce Springsteen. Otherwise it is noted in the header of a song's file.

Many thanks to Josef Schrefel for creating the original site and to Rainer Danner and all the other contributors for their ears & help!
