    Good songs. I learned all of them when they were brand new. I'll be curious to see if they use the G form with a capo to play Small Town (4th fret, key of E with first chord B if memory serves). Pink Houses is fun and easy, but almost seems like a waste of the talents of the people doing the transcriptions. A simple G, C, F, and D song. Jack and Diane is fun because if done correctly, you use some cool E and A forms to quickly move between the chords. It's kind of like the forms used for the intro to Feel Like Makin' Love by Bad Company or the intro to What I Like About You where you voice the chords up at the 7th and 9th frets, the 5th and 4th, then open.

    Yep, just looked in the sheet music I had. Key was E (4 sharps).



    This is when I bought this sheet music new!!

    Yep, same tunings. Pretty cool. In a two guitar band, Pink Houses works with one in open G and another in standard. The open G tuning is definitely easier for the lead guitar part to be done the way Grissom did it.
