    Does anyone know the chord progression for "That's Neat, That's Nice by NRBQ"? Cool swing tune, I'm just having a hard time pickin' it it out.

    I should know it, but I'm having a brain fart remembering which song it is. If you can give me the key and some hints, I might be able to help out...

    I have "At Yankee Stadium" but all I could find was the CD cover.

    I believe its in the key of D. I have the live version and the guitar is a little muddy in the mix.

    I found the studio version here:

    These are the chords I'm getting:

    Db6 / Eb9 / Gb6 Ab7 Db6 /

    Gb7 / Db6 / Eb7 / Ab7 Ab7#5

    Or maybe Ebmin7 instead of Gb6, as in a II-V-I turnaround. I can hear a descending chromatic pattern in the first three chords from Ab to G to Gb.

    It's a great old tune. Back when it first came out I really wanted to learn it, but I was just starting to play guitar and couldn't figure it out. Here's a recent version with the new band and Terry Adams playing a great keyboard solo in his usual crazy style (karate chops and fists):
