King Crimson : 21st Century Schizoid Man transcription by Dennis Montgomery
[email protected]
I used 3 versions of Schizoid Man to transcribe this:
1) Studio : _In the Court of the Crimson King_
2) Live : Providence disc from the amazing new _Great Deceiver_ boxed set
(also the same version originally released on _USA_)
3) Live : My *Alltime Favourite* version from _Earthbound_
NOTES: 1) Standard bar chords unless otherwise noted
2) This transcription isn't rigidly Beginning -> End. I'll write it by
section then assume knowledge of repeating parts...
First the chords:
The main chordal riff in 4/4:
1 2 3 4|1 2 3 4
C A# C D# A# C |F F# G
Alternate used before vox:
1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4
C A# C D# F G |13---14---15---|
|16*--17*--18-----------| *Bend each 1 whole step

Vocal Section Chord from hell:
Interpretations of this chord are legendary, this one sounded best to me:
x
8

Cat's foot etc...
Exit main chordal riff:
F F# G : Repeat 6 times, increase tempo then...

...And speaking of hell, here are the inhumanly fast parts...
Fast1*

|----------------3---3-5-3-5-3---3-5---5-------|
|--------3---3-5---5-----------5---------------|
|--1-3-5---5-----------------------------------|
|3---------------------------------------------|
*The rhythm is correct so if you play the triplet at the indicated time
(and allow 1 note length) you should be dead on.
The notes themselves are pretty close but open to interpretation...
Fast2**
|--------------------------------------------3---------------|
|------------------------/tri-------3---3-6---2-1-----------|
|----------------3---3-5-3-5-3---3-5---5------------3-0------|
|--------3---3-5---5-----------5-------------------------3-0-|

**Same as * except last 7 notes are definitely correct

|------------|------------|------------3-0-----|------------3-0-----|
|------------|------------|----------------3-0-|----------------3-0-|
|------------|------------|--------------------|--------------------|
|------------|------------|--------------------|--------------------|
The order for the inhumanly fast section:
Fast1, Fast2, Fast3, Fast1, Stop&Go, Mute1, Mute1, Fast3, Fast1, Stop&Go
Then back into the unison runs, vox, and opening chords. By the time the song
ends you should have either achieved enlightenment or neurotic breakdown :)
One thing's for sure, if you make it all the way through, you're well on
your way to becoming a 21st Century Schizoid Man...Have fun!
