I`ll give each riff a name and refer to it in the rest of the document under
that name.

Here are the riffs used in the song.

 Blow   A|---5--7---5-7
        E|7-------7----

 Elow   A|----10--12----10-12
        E|12---------12------

 Bhigh  D|----12--14----12-14
        A|14---------14------

 Ehigh  G|----12--14----12-14
        D|14---------14------

 F#high A|----12--14----12-14
        E|14---------14------

Okay these are the main riffs there are other twidly bits played by Steve
Craddock. I`ve worked some of them out there is no need to play them note
for note they`re all based in a Bmin pentatonic, so just improvise.

Okay here we go.

Intro:
------
Blow *8  Bhigh*4  Ehigh*2  Blow*2  F#high*2  Blow*2
                           
Steve plays the following riff starting on the F#high to lead into verse 1:
Note again this isn`t exact but it`s what I play,(listen to the song to get
the timing right).

E|10--7--10--7--10--7--10-12b(14)l12-10-10h12p10----10------------------------
B|-----------------------------------------------12----10 -------------10b(12)
G|--------------------------------------------------------11------------------
D|-----------------------------------------------------------12-12\9----------

Verse1:
-------

Blow*4
I see double up ahead
Elow*2
Where the riverboat swayed beneath the sun
                        Blow*2
Is where the river runs red
Elow*2
Like a king who stalks the wings and shoots a dove
                       Blow*2
And frees an eagle instead
    xE               xF#         xB (these are notes on low E string)
It`s more or less the same as the things that you said.

The following Riff is played before going into verse 2:

A|----0---0-2(hold for 2 bars while other guitar plays a wah bit)
E|0-2---2----

Verse2:
-------

Blow*4
I see trouble up the road
Elow*2
Like the thing you found in love are by the way
                          Blow*2
And like to cheat on your soul
Elow*2
Like the best and worst of thoughts that lose control
                         Blow*2
Before you lie on your bed
    xE               xF#         xB (these are notes on low E string)
It`s more or less the same as the things that you said.


The following Riff is played before going into chorus:

      E|0-2---2----

(with little fill from second guitar)

        D|-----------------------9\

then

B|7-7-9/10\9--7vv
G|7-7-9/10\9--7vv

Blow*4  Bhigh*4  Blow*4  then organ & little stratospheric noises to end.

Well thats it, the bits I mised out are improvised, if you want to play them
note for note then work them out yourself. I`ve worked out 99% of the guitar
bits here just improvise the rest to add your own style to the song.
This is a great band and are gonna be very big.

Well if you`re ever in Nottingham check out "Beatroot" nightclub on Tuesdays
(Britpop student)& Fridays(Indie), I`m there every week.
or if you`re in Coventry check out the Calesuim on Thursdays, there this thing
called THE BUZZ which is ment to be a very big mod scene that`s just moved
there it`s every month on Friday I think so check it out.


If you want to e-mail me I`m in Nottingham Uni e-mail address:
