Stormbringer

(Blackmore/Coverdale)

From "Stormbringer", 1974

Stormbringer chords, structure (as on Deepest Purple)

Coverdale / Hughes


Im not sure about all chords, as you can see.

> * < mark the beats. Of course theres no sense in trying to sing the
syllables exactly as in this version,

but the marks could make it easyer to orient and hear how the chords are
changing, while listening.

Maybe someone could tabulate the Riffs and Intro.



Intro (Em Em Em B - Em Em Em B)?
