After The Zombies disbanded in 1968, keyboardist Rod Argent resurfaced with his own band, Argent, which included Chris White, another ex-Zombie on bass. The two of them collaborated on some great songs in the early 1970s and *Hold Your Head Up*is probably their best known. The song features a pounding, hypnotic bass under some distorted guitar chords, then a lengthy, spacey keyboard solo. This short lesson looks at combining the bass and guitar parts into a solid accompaniment to the verse, as well as the accented (and shocking sounding) chords in the chorus.

Yes, it's been on my "must try" list since I started on this site. My first attempt I found it un fathomable. Then after eight months at TG it began to make sense. I toyed with it from time to time, but I haven't gotten back to it in its entirety, well, because . . . there are too many other fun things to do. Thanks for responding.

Went to see The Zombies the other night. It was a great show and of course Ron Argent played "Hold Your Head Up." It's been on my "must learn" list for a while. I went to look at the tab this morning and I noticed the error in the lyrics which Ron Argent spoke about that night. He said "Everybody thinks the words are 'Hold your head up, oh . . . ' but they're 'Hold your head up woman.'" He wanted to make sure he had everyone singing it correctly. BTW--I believe The Zombies are doing a free show in Central Park tonight. If anyone is in the area, it should be great.
