                Simple Creed - Live ft.Tricky
Written by Ed Kowalczyk

I've transcribed this song for two guitar parts. One guitar 
can improvise in the verse while the other plays the D riff. 
Guitar 2 plays the main riff and the chorus riff in 
dropped-d down half a step. I'll write out guitar one's part 
first and then I'll do guitar two.

Guitar 1 - Adam/Ed - dropped down half a step
Guitar 2 - Chad - dropped D down half a step

Guitar 1 - Verse

     *listen to the cd for exact timing

Guitar 1 - Chorus

D 	Am	 C 	G

During the Tricky spoken bit, both guitars just play heavy palm muting. 
I play it by putting my fret hand totally over the neck at around the 12th 
fret and using the fat end of my pick to strum the strings. It sounds alright.
Here is Chad's part.

Guitar 2 - Intro/Main Riff

eb|----------------------------------------------------|
Bb|--3--3--------------------3--3----------------------|
Gb|--2--2--------------------2--3----------------------|
Db|-------2-h-3-p-2------------------------------------|
Ab|------------------3--5---------2-h-3-p-2------------|
Db|------------------------------------------5--3------|

Guitar 2 - Verse

For the first part of the verse, guitar two plays the main riff and for 
the second half, Chad plays some sliding notes. You can basically play anyting 
here and it will sound alright just along as guitar one is playing their 
verse D riff. When ed sings, "Now nobody's takin your candy", I play this 
and it sounds alright:

    |heavy palm muting|
eb|----------------------------------------------------|
Bb|----------------------------------------------------|
Gb|----------------------------------------------------|
Db|--0-12-\-x-14-\-------------------------------------|
Ab|--0-12-\-x-12-\-------------------------------------|
Db|--0-12-\-x------------------------------------------|

Guitar 2 - Prechorus

eb|----------------------------------------------------|
Bb|----------------------------------------------------|
Gb|----------------------------------------------------|
Db|--3-/-5-5-5-5---3-/-5-5-5-5-------------------------|
Ab|--3-/-5-5-5-5---3-/-5-5-5-5-------------------------|
Db|--3-/-5-5-5-5---3-/-5-5-5-5-------------------------|
	*listen to the cd for exact timing

Guitar 2 - Chorus riff

eb|----------------------------------------------------|
Bb|----------------------------------------------------|
Gb|--12--11--9--5-----5-h-7-/-9-\-7-5-7----------------|
Db|----------------------------------------------------|
Ab|----------------------------------------------------|
Db|----------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 2 - Tricky bit

Play this by holding your fret hand over the 12th fret and with heavy 
pick scratching and echo effects.

eb|----------------------------------------------------|
Bb|----------------------------------------------------|
Gb|----------------------------------------------------|
Db|-x-\-x-\-x-\-x-\-x-\-x-\-x-\------------------------|
Ab|-x-\-x-\-x-\-x-\-x-\-x-\-x-\------------------------|
Db|-x-\-x-\-x-\-x-\-x-\-x-\-x-\------------------------|

Chad then plays something like this in the second half of the tricky part.
When Tricky sings, "But you're always, walking hallways", try this:

eb|----------------------------------------------------|
Bb|--10--12--13--15--17--19--20------------------------|
Gb|----------------------------------------------------|
Db|----------------------------------------------------|
Ab|----------------------------------------------------|
Db|----------------------------------------------------|

That's basically it. After the tricky bit, you play the prechorus twice and 
play out the chorus. I know the tab is very, very vague but improvise where you 
see fit.
