                Green Bird by Yoko Kanno / Seatbelts


This transcription is all my own.

Note, this is based off the live at Shibuya X piano medley. For the album version, 
you drop it a whole step.
I also did not include the melody for the verse, because that's comparatively cake to figure out.
My harmonic an*lysis is included.

'V' indicates dominant

in the key of G:
(version to the right is an octave higher, what's actually played)
E--------------------------------------------      -----------------------------------|
B--------------------------------------------      ------------8-----------------7----|
G------------0-------------------------------      ---------7-----7-----------7-----7-|
D---------0----0----------0---4---0----------      ------9---------------10-----------|
A------2---------------3---------------------      -----------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------     -----------------------------------|
         (a)                  (b)

a) G first inversion
b) D7, no fifth

Fun part (aka chorus-ish area)
E-----7---------7---------8---------------------------------7------------------------------|
B-------------------------------------------9------------------------------------------10--|
G---------7---------7---------7---------------------7---------------6--9--6----------------|
D-------------------------------------------6----------------7-------------------------7---|
A---10---------8---------7-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
       (a)                         (b)                  (c)                   (d)

a) G7
b) C first inversion
c) Ddim (no 3rd), possibly Ab serves as a passing tone
d) Aadd2 -> A, where the C# E C# A arpeggiation serves to fill in the chord. (V/V in key of G)

E---------------------------------3-----------------------------------|
B---7------8-----12---10----------------------------------------------|
G---0------------------------------------0----------------------------|
D-------------------------------------0-----0---------0--4--0---------|
A---------------------------------2----------------3------------------|
E----------------10---------------------------------------------------|
      (a)                                   (b)

a) D (V in key of G)
b) back to verse
