I've seen these floating around...

e---1-----x---
b---1-----6---
g---0-----5---
d---0-----5---
a---3-----5---
e---3-----x---


but i'm yet to find the right one, i think.
i've heard several different chords on several different tracks so i'm none the wiser than above.

You can play the D chord like this : A and D strings open, with C at the fifth case on the G string and F at the Sixth case on the B string. It sounds right to me. Or simply a D chord at the fifth case...

I don't think it was a strum but a hit on the guitar body (maybe neck?).

See FBC's suggestion. Maybe ask Cheeseman1000 to elaborate further, heh

Howdy. I'm pretty sure its FBC's first choice, 330011, a G7sus4. That's the nearest I've found to it, and I know one or two guitar magazine transcribers who'll agree with me.

Don't get me started on the 'Hard Day's Night' chord though...

I think it's a D, not a G. Out of the options listed here, I think number 13's is closest.

I said don't get me started...
I've got three or four that work just as well:

You're usually looking at a root of G, with a seventh and a sus4 in there. Alternative cobinations include 303213 (as apparently shown to Gary Moore by George Harrison), or even 553533, which may sound out at first - try letting it ring and check out the sympathetic harmonic.

Good grief. I'm plagiarising my own thesis.

it's definately a variation of D.

Number 13 has it sounding nice, similar to my 2nd chord up top, but I add the D root note on the A string to give it a little more beef. listening to the live recordings it sound more a barre chord than an open ringing out (hence the extra finger on the fret board).

e---x---
b---6---
g---5---
d---0---
a---5---
e---x---


It's so similar to HDN but that opening chord is just too 'pretty' major sounding.
The Pixies version is a little dirtier (sorry, best way i could describe it).

(why do I have the feeling it's still wrong?)

There's at least 2 guitars playing that opening strum, and I think they're playing slightly different chords. The acoustic sounds like a chord, one of the overdrive guitars on the right sounds like just open strings.
I'm pretty sure either of these two will get you close enough.

e---1-----1-----
B---1-----1-----
G---0-----2-----
D---0-----0-----
A---0-----0-----
E---0-----0-----

edit:
Actually, I think I've got it!

e--x--
B--6--
G--5--
D--0--
A--0--
E--0--

I remember FB playing the D's as a barre on the A string, so this makes sense. There's a couple of clashing notes, I think thats what makes it so hard to figure out.

I saw it transcribed in Total Guitar this way, as frank black conspiracy has it, so I used to play it like this;

G7sus4

E--1--
B--1--
G--0--
D--0--
A--3--
E--3--

Though that sounds real nice, I think Doog's second one is closer, which is how Guitar World transcribed it, except the the open low E is not picked;

E--X--
B--6--
G--5--
D--0--
A--0--
E--X--

Nope, that's not it...maybe the missing 'Well' chord though.

I made up a chord recently. It was so beautiful when picked slowly. Then I forgot it.
