Not as such as they're all scattered as individual posts. Maybe Syl will feel nice and copy / paste them as quotes? I'm not volunteering I'm at work :)

FREEDOM SONG



(you can play an E OR an E7 chord where an E chord is indicated)


Intro
Dm
(just for this bit leave your finger OFF the high E string when you play the Dm chord.Hit the strings from the D string up to the high E string.
These are the first four notes of the intro.For the fifth note fret the last bit of the Dm chord by putting your first finger on the high E string at the first fret.Hit.Yeh?)

B7
(this is quite complicated because it's an inversion of a B7.This is how it is fretted):-

eadgbe
x64445

Play each string from A string to High E one by one.These are the nextfive notes of the intro.

Then(chords):-
E______ F__E

Then single notes on lowest string:-
E F# Ab

For the verse play an Am and for every bar alternate between an
A note(open 2nd string) then hit Am chord
and a Low E note(open first string)then hit Am again a bit like this.("Dum" is the bass note and "Chung" is the Am chord)

Like:-

A(note)-Am(chord) E(note)-Am(chord) A(note)-Am_____ E(note)-Am
(Dum__Chung____Dum___Chung____Dum___Chung___Dum___Chung)

Then fret and keep an F chord and pluck the
E string,hit the F chord,then the A string,hit the F chord.

Then E chord and do the same,so it's
E string,E chord,A string,E chord

Whenever the chords reappear the bass notes are the same as above(I hope you can understand this!)

Anyway here's the chords in full:-

Intro
Dm__________B7________E________F____E______

Verse etc...
Am__________________________
All this world seems bent upon,Contemplating Babylon

F________________________E________
Fate is sealed inside a bomb,Where has all the freedom gone

Am__________________
There's a place for eveyone,Live and die our kingdom come
F____________________E_________________
But until the web is spun,Everybody must have fun
E_________________________
I'm not scared to die,God help me
F____________________________
We went to the same schools and we
Dm__________B7___________E______F__E___
All learned the same rules of lament

Repeat for all verses and solo.
End goes

Am____E_______
E_Am

I AM THE KEY


(tune your lowest E string down to a D note)

When playing the D chord you can let the lowest E ring out as it's now a Dnote,
The A chord is the same as usual as you mute the lowest E string

The G chord is slightly different as you now fret the G note at the fifth fret of the low E string,mute the A string next to it,play the next two strings open,fret the B string at the 3rd fret and mute the high E string

Like this
G chord(with 'D' tuned low 'E' string)
eadgbe
5x003x

(To play the jangly lead riff you can just play a D chord but leave the high E string open and pick around the notes)

Right-o.Here we go:-

(Play a D chord for 4 beats then a A for 2 and a G for 2 beats each time)

D______________A_____G_____

D______________A_____G_____


Verse
D______________A_____G_____
I Am the key

D______________A_____G_____
You are the door

D______________A_____G_____
I am the sea

D______________A_____G_____
You are the shore

D______________________________A_____G______
Do you know what you're looking for

D______________________________A_________
Do you know what for

G_______________A_________D___G_______A___
____Cos I am the key,open the door,open the door

(First time go back to top and repeat)

A_______D______G_____A
Open the doo-ooo-o-oo-o-or



Other bit:-
A________G*__________A__________G*__________A__
Open the door,open the door,open the door,open the door,

_________G*___________A
open the door,open the door

________G_____________A__________D
Open the do---o--o---o--o--or,open the door

(Where G* is shown you should play a G chord with an A note in the bass which is done by playing the A,D,G,B and high E strings open and muting the low E string like this):-

eadgbe
x00000

So you can basically go from the A chord and then just take all your fingers off the frets(muting the lowest E string with your thumb)and not moving them too far away
Then you just put all your fingers back where they came from for the A chord that follows.
This isn't how Lee plays it as he just plays an ordinary G chord while John stays on an A note on the bass but if you play it like this then it'll make more sense musically if you play it on your own.

All BY MYSELF



The bass notes ARE played on the guitar at the same time as the higher notes.We've established that Lee probably played this on a 3/4 size Martin so it's a little bit trickier to play on a full size acoustic,but not impossible.

You would probably be better off playing the bass notes on the E and A strings and also play the open E string(as th suspended 4th of the B chord) rather than fretting the B string at the 5th like the other tab says.

For the first part try using your 3rd and little finger to fret the G&B at the 4th fret)

E--------------------0------------------------------------0--------
B------------4----4----4--------------------------4----4----4-----
G---------4----4----------4-------------------4------4--------4--
D-------------------------------------------------------------------
A--2----------------------------------------------------------------
E------------------------------------0-----------------------------

Then change your fingering here to fret both the G&B string at the 4th fret with your first finger leaving the others free to play the riff bit

(*)
E------------------------------------------------------------
B---------------4-------7----5----4----5---4---------------
G------------4-----4-----------------------------4-----6---
D------------------------------------------------------------
A----0-------------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------0--------------------

BTW-There is what sounds like a cello playing an F# at the same time you play the open A string on the intro but it sounds right enough without the F#

You should be able to work out the rest of the song with this technique
-eg(bass notes here are fretted with first finger and the G&B strings fretted with 3rd and Littlke finger)

(**)
-----------------------------------
------------4---------------4-----
---------4----4---------4------4--
------------------------------------
-2----------------1----------------
------------------------------------

To fret the 3rd bass note (the Ab-4th fret low E string) change to your 2nd finger,then the next bass note (F#-2nd fret loe E) is again fretted with your first finger while all the time keeping the other two fingers at the same position at the 4th fret on the G&B strings

--------------------------------------------
--------------4-------------------4--------
---------4--------4----------4-------4-----
--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------
-4----------------------2-------------------

Play from (*) again but this time it's slightly different for the second part

---------------------------------------
------------4-------------------------
---------4----4-----------4-------4--
--------------------------------------
---------------------------------------
-4-------------------2----------4-----

Then repeat the change in fingering mentioned at point (*)
("of tears of yoy and pain,sorrow and RAIN")

(remember-change your fingering here to fret both the G&B string at the 4th fret with your first finger leaving the others free to play the riff bit)

(*)
E---------------------------------------------------------------
B---------------4-------7----5----4----5---4----------------4-
G------------4-----4-----------------------------4-----6--------4-
D---------------------------------------------------------------
A----0---------------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------0----------------------


(***)E---------------------------------------------------------------
B---------------4-------7----5----4----5---4-----------------
G------------4-----4-----------------------------4-----6------
D---------------------------------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------0---------------------

See below(sticks and stones)

(Sticks And Stones)
Barre the D,G&B with yourfirst finger and play the bass notes with your thumb

B----------------4--------4---5---4---------------------4-----4---5---4----
G------------4--------4---------------4-------------4------4--------------4-
D------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E-------4--------------------------------------3------------------------------

Then play the *** bit mentioned above twice for the "Names will never hurt me,hurt me)

I Again msut rush but I will complete the tab when I have more time for more of this for you but in the meantime here is my transcription of the solo copied over from the other thread.
(Hopefully you are now in a position to work out the other bits)

Solo:-

Phrase One(played twice)

This is a 'double stop' technique so use your second finger on the G string and your 3rd on the E string and keep plucking the open B string in between(you'll see on the tab what I mean hopefully).

Try and play all transitions of notes on the G string as slides(both down-for the first half,and up-for the 2nd half)

The shape is the same for the 1st,2nd and 4th shapes (both fingers at the same fret) with a slightly different shape for the 3rd shape
(bring your first finger into play here to fret the E string at the 7th fret) like this..............



(I wont bother representing the lower E A and D strings as they are not used at any point in the solo)

E____11____________9___________7___________6_____________
B________0___________0___________0___________0___________
G_11_______11___9______9____8_______8____6_______6_______

Played twice the above represents the first 4 bars of the solo(remember the beats are counted slow on this slow song so don't count the beats too quick and get confused)

I wont bother representing the E A and D strings now as they are not used at any point in the solo)

Phrase two
This time the E string is left constantly open and the B string is used as part of the double stop for the first half,then it's back to fretting the G and E strings and leaving the B string open for the second half of the phrase.

Basically we are playing here are the last few strings of a standard E chord,then F#7 (with the '7' being the open E string) and then Emaj7(but it's actually more like a Bsus 4 with the open E string)

Confused?-I don't blame you! Just play it and it will become clearer.

E____0__________0__________0_________0_______________________
B______0__________2__________4_________2_____________________
G__1_____1____3_____3___4______4___3_____3___________________



E____0_________2___________4___________6_____________________
B______0_________0___________0____________0__________________
G__1_____1__3_______3___4______4___6__________6______________

This represents bars 5-8 of the solo.

Then play the first part again(twice again!) with this little bit thrown in as the last half-bar before you repeat Phrase Two..........................


_12_12__11____9_____7__________________
___________0_____0_____0_______________
_13_13__11____9_____8__________________


It's not precisely spaced but I hope you can get an idea of how to approach the solo.

ALL BY MYSELF (2)

How To Play The Solo
(the solo info and tab is futher down the page)

Just a quick explanation of how I think the song is played.

This song is in B and has to be for the low 'E' note as first heard properly after the word "again" in the first verse.

I've discussed this with other people and they agree.I am informed that Lee is using standard tuning and while this makes the main body of the song is hard to play,it's not impossible.

This makes the awkward 'G' note that W.S. speaks of a much easier to play as an open A string over a 'B' chord shape(ie an A major chord but fretted with your 3rd finger across the D,G and B strings and moved up two frets and the A string left open).Or you can fret the G and B strings at the fourth fret with your third and little finger and move your first finger and second finger(for the third note of th bass line-the Ab) around the bass notes.

To play the song in 'B' you have to play a Bb note as the second note in the bass(the rest of the chord virtually stays the same throughout).So barring the D,G and B strings with the third finger you play the desceding bass line as follows.

B.........Bb.......Ab........F# twice


then you play the A in the bass followed by the E in the bass and A again.

The repeated riff on the high notes is achieved by using a 'sus4' shape(making the Eb an E natural) B chord and the F# at fret 2 of the high E string,ending on a C# note played at the 2nd fret of the B string which requires some tricky fingering.
Alternatively you can get the E note simply by playing the open high E string.

Here's the tab for the solo,which has an open B string ringing out throughout,further proving the song to be in 'B' major.

It's kind of fingerpicked with you plucking the G string note(with thumb of right hand) first and then cascading down the E B and G strings over and over again(3rd finger,2nd finger,Thumb).

The explanations all look more complicated than just playing the bloody thing but I'm trying to be as helpful as I can and once you CAN play it I promise you'll be playing it all the time.

Also your ears will recognise the sounds when you play the shapes and this should also help you to work out how to play it.

So..Here we go.......


Phrase One(play twice)

This is a 'double stop' technique so use your second finger on the G string and your 3rd on the E string and keep plucking the open B string in between(you'll see on the tab what I mean hopefully).

Try and play all transitions of notes on the G string as slides(both down-for the first half,and up-for the 2nd half)
I wont bother representing the lower E A and D strings as they are not used at any point in the solo
The shape is the same for the 1st,2nd and 4th shapes (both fingers at the same fret) with a slightly different shape for the 3rd shape
(bring your first finger into play here to fret the E string at the 7th fret) like this..............



(I wont bother representing the lower E A and D strings as they are not used at any point in the solo)

E____11____________9___________7___________6_____________
B________0___________0___________0___________0___________
G_11_______11___9______9____8_______8____6_______6_______

Only just noticed this thread.
I keep my hand in the same position whenever I play this, and utilise the open E.
Something like this (off the top of my head - haven't got a guitar in front of me at the moment...)

EDIT: Sorry - that's already been pointed out in the other thread, hasn't it.
Silly me.
I'll sht up now. :oops:

Sorry these weren't a bit easier to understand but this is why I always decline offers to give guitar lessons.Things that I understand,unspoken in me head don't translate well to paper/screen.

Man I'm Only Human


The record seems to be out of concert pitch.
I play it in standard tuning,key of D, like this-

[1]
e________0_______________
b____________3___________
g_____2__________________
d__0________________3___2
a________________________

[2]
e___________0____________
b________3_______________
g_____2__________________
d__0_____________________
a________________________
e_________________3____1(bend the '1' slightly-this is the hardest bend ever on a guitar!)

[3]

e__2___0__2____________
b__3___3__3____________
g__2___2__0____________(D chord with 3rd finger on-off and a sus4)
d__0___0__0____________
a__0___0__0____3___2___
e______________________

Verses made up of [1] and [2] or a [3] and [2] depending on where you are in the song.
(also do a [3] everytime before you sing)

There's also the stoppy riff that goes

e_______________
b__2_2_2________
g__3_3_3________
d__0_0_0________
a_______________
e_________3___1_

which is chopped and muted D chord

Then the "Man I'm only woman,Man I'm only me" bit which is......

e_3_3_3_3__3_3____
b_2_2_2_2__3_3____
g_3_3_3_3__3_3____
d_0_0_0_0__0_0____
a_________________
e_________________

( -D-D-D-D--Gm[D-in bass] )

Followed by a [2] and repeated twice then back to [1]'s and [2]'s

Hope this helps.

Cheeers,
Paul

OVER


This is the intro

E_7_7_7_7__9___11___12___14_____15_____________________
B_0_0_0_0____0____0____0_____0_________________________

x2

("6-7"=slide)

E___7_7__6-7___6-7-8-7-6-8-7-6_______________________________
B___0_0__0_____0______0___________________________________

then part one again.


Apart from the solo(which is very hard to transcribe-see below) the rest is just chords which you probably already know

(Em-----G-------A-------B7------Emx2
G---B7---Em----G----B7---Em---G---B7---Em--G---B7---Em--------
G-----A----G-----A-----("On&On"repeat as needed)
Em----G---A----B7-----Em--------------------------)


Solo-

Hemmings plays a jazzy impov around this scale-

E--12----14----15---17----19
B--12----13----15------------
G--11----12----14-------------------
D--12-----14-----------
A
E

Start at the 14th fret of D and just use these notes in a sort of random order-You should be able to hear certain phrases just by playing the notes in order(low to hi).

As requested by apairofbrowneyes3 here's

Way Out.

The main riff is just based arond a D chord shape with the hi E string left open

e___________0_____0_________ ____ ____
b______________3_____3______ ____ ____
g___________________________ ____ ____
d___0_______________________ ____ ____
a___________________________ ____ __0_
e___________________________ _3__ ____
^ ^
Play x3 but alter the bass note from D to G then A

Then the last bit of riff is........

e_3____2_____0____
b___3_____3____(3)
g_________________
d_________________
a_________________
e_________________


The rhythm uses the same chords as the bass notes above for the verse

D(..2,3) G(..2,3) A(..2,3) x2

Then for "Give me some money" you can play simply

E (..2,3) D(..2,3) E(..2,3) D(..2,3)

E A E D

E A E D G D


But if you look at the video for the song it seems Lee slides into one of these between each of the above chords .


e_____0_____
b_____0_____
g_____2_____
d_____0_____
a_____4_____
e_____0_____

Don't know exactly what you'd call this chord but it amounts to a sort of A chord with a C# as the bass note.

It can be left out with very little difference to the sound though.

"Give it all you got now"
A (..2,3,4,5,6) G(..2,3) D(...2,3) x4

"Yeh,Give a little"
E(..2,3,4,5,6)


e________________________
b________________________
g________________________
d______________________2_
a_________________2______
e___0____4_______________



There's a riff in the background of the chorus which is.....

e_____________________7_7_7____________
b__7_8_7_____7_8__10__________10___9___
g_________9____________________________


And the solo is.....(beginning with the riff after "Yeh,give a little")


e___________________________________________
b___________________________________________
g___________________________________________
d______________________2-0__4-0__5-0_________(fret the note then pull your finger off to play the open D string each time)
a______________2____________________________
e_0____4______________________________________


D G A D G A
e_______________________________________________
b_______________________________________________
g___2____4____0________0______0___2___2____4___0
d_________________________4_____________________

This next bit (over the "Give me some money" chords) is basically just the 'Blues' scale in 'E' but with a small twist as both the normal (for blues scales) minor third ['G'-open G string] AND the major third [Ab-G string 1st fret] are used.

Also note this is the Album version's solo (Cammy) not the 45 version (Hemmings plays it slightly differently)

e___________________________________
b___________________________________
g___0_1_0___________________________
d__________2___0______0__2__2___2_2_
a__________________2________________
e___________________________________


e___________________________________
b___________________________________
g___0_1_0___________________________
d__________2___0____________________
a__________________0(let it reing)______
e___________________________________

Now start not with open G but fret it at the first for a kind of E sus4 thing

e___________________________________
b___________________________________
g___1_2_1__________________________
d__________2___0______0__2__2___2_2_
a__________________2________________
e___________________________________



e___________________________________________________
b________0____3_____5___3_______2__3______2_3_______
g___1_2_____________________________________________
d____________________________________0__________0___
a___________________________________________________
e___________________________________________________

Then there's a different riff on the last chorus which is two or more guitars playing in unison.

If anyone has any idea how to play this last bit or the chord that the jazzy chord (is it a 9th or something?) played in the bridge I welcome your suggestions.

Good Luck,
Paul

Another one for apairofbrowneyes3

Clean Prophet

Not much to do in the way of tab here but the chords are.......


Dm (,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 ) G(2,3,4,5,6,7,8 ) A(2,3,4) G(2,3,4) Dm(2,3,4) G(2,3,4) x2



Dm(,2) A(,2) Dm(,2,3,4)

__________________________________________
Middle 8("Take me,Take me,Take me.....")

D(2,3,4,5,6,7,8 ) G(2,3,4,5,6,7,8 )

C(2,3,4,5,6,7,8 ) Bb(2,3,4) A(2,3,4)

Sometimes (like on the bit after "Everybody's gotta dream") you should play the G like this

e______1___(1st Finger)
b______3___(4th-[Little] Finger)
g______0___
d______0___
a______x___(mute with part of third finger or second if you want)
e______3___(3rd Finger)

and try taking your finger off the high E and then back on for that little flourish Lee does on the acoustic after that line.

It's pretty much up to the player how often they substitute the G7(add5) chord above for an ordinary G.No set rule really.

The parts of lyrics are just a guide to which part you are playing.They don't line up properly for where to change chord so just change when you think you should.

Tips-

Play the 'A'chord nearly as usual but with the 'B' string open-ie your third finger off (this chord is called "Asus2")

Play the B7 and G in the old school style.....

Like this--

--- A ---------------- B7 -------------------------- G -------

...........FINGERS

e__0__(open)__ _2__(little)_______ ____3__(3rd)
b__0__(open)__ _0__(open)_______ ____0__(open)
g__2__(2nd)___ __2__(third)_______ ____0__(open)
d__2__(first)___ __1__(second)_____ ____0__(open)
a__0__(open)__ __2__(first)________ ____2__(1st-or mute)
e__x__(mute)__ __x__(mute/don't play)____3__(2nd)


By the time the second verse comes you can emulate the vocal harmony by playing this for a G chord if you want but only on the first part of the verse ("o-VER") then revert to normal G for the 2nd half of verse.


e__x___(mute)
b__2___(1st)
g__2___(2nd)
d__0___(open)
a__x___(open)
e__3___(3rd)


Good Luck,
Paul




Solo-

Hemmings plays a jazzy impov around this scale-

E--12----14----15---17----19
B--12----13----15------------
G--11----12----14-------------------
D--12-----14-----------
A
E

Start at the 14th fret of D and just use these notes in a sort of random order-You should be able to hear certain phrases just by playing the notes in order(low to hi).



Good Luck,
Cheers,
Paul
