Working Out "Ducks on the C"

FAQ: How do you work out your band arrangements?
A: Sometimes it just falls into place, sometimes it takes a bit of compromise. Recent exchange at band practice...

Bass: Everyone does an F chord there - it's boooorrrring. Try a C chord. 


Guitar: I will die a thousand and one deaths before I put a C chord in this tune. It's just plain wrong.
 

Mando: Try Am7?
 

Bass and Guitar: No.
 

Bass: (In charming Scottish brogue) Come on, just once.

Fiddle: Let's just play.
Guitar: Fine, just once...

Guitar: C chords are the bomb! We love C chords! Do it again!

Mando: :: ♫ Db7, ♫ D7, ♫ ::

Everyone else: Stop that right now.
