Behind blue eyes guitar chords
The song starts with a solo voice singing over an arpeggiated acoustic guitar in the key of E minor, and a bass guitar and ethereal harmonies are added. Eventually, the song breaks out into a full-scale rock anthem, with a second theme being introduced near the end, before a brief reprise of the quieter first theme. Songs written in alternating sections were a feature of Townshend’s writing of the period, going back at least to Tommy, where the technique was used in “Christmas” and “Go to the Mirror!”. The guitar riff at the end of the rock anthem section is also used after the bridge during the song “Won’t Get Fooled Again”, perhaps serving as a link between the two songs when both were intended to be parts of a single rock opera.
