Notes
-------
The verses of the song are all quite similar. Verses 1,2 and 3 are
made up of a (G#, C#)[3],F# - (G# C#)[3] F# C# progression over
8-bars. Each verse differs slightly an bars 4 and 8 - after the
first verse these changes are shown as 'fills'. The differences are
only slight.
In verses 4 and 5 (and also in the Outro) the original verse riff is
transposed down by a whole tone (by moving the original chords down
by 2 frets) giving a (F#, B)[3],E - (F# B)[3] E B progression. Again,
the riff played over the (F# B)[3] section is constant with only
slight changes occurring in bars 4 and 8. (These are also shown as
fills)
The 2 guitar solos are based on the F# minor pentatonic scale, using
the 'standard box' pattern (with extension) found at the second fret.
Both solos share the same first 4-bars.
Some of the notation in the guitar solos may need clarification....
The term '4brp2' (in the 4th bar of solo 1) is an attempt to notate
a fluid movement of the wrist used to fret the notes.
The note on the 4th fret is bent by 1 semitone (the same as the note
found on the 5th fret) then released and then pulled-off to the 2nd
fret - all in one movement. Other terms, such as 4mbp2, can be
explained in a similar way. The note at the 4th fret is bend slightly
(i.e. less than a semitone - listen to the record for the exact bend)
and the pull-off to fret 2. All in one movement. Listen to the record
and it should become clear.
The spoken word section contains 2 guitars. Guitar 1 plays the main
rhythm part, which is based on playing partial power chords. Guitar 2
plays diads, - these have a reggae type of feel to them, as they are
played on beats 2 and 4 of each bar. Guitar 3 is used to add a melody
over the C5 sections these are shown as double_fills 1 and 2. The fills
also sound as if they may have been doubled, to get a thicker sound.
The choruses are all different, but follow the same structure. They
are made up of partial chords - its just a matter of playing the
chords shown above the TAB to match the vocal phrasing to get the
'loose effect' heard on the record.
